    That makes me feel old. I sure many of you can relate to that.

    Wow!! Imagine if he hadn’t been traded…he would have still been out there playing and putting his life in danger unknowingly. Man, the Clippers trainers are something else…

    Also makes me feel first.

    Apparently every club he played for knew he had a heart condition, they just didn’t know how bad it was. makes you wonder how many players actually play with a serious condition.

  • Ken

    Don’t blame the Clippers trainers. He signed a waiver in order to play. People knew about his condition, he was just choosing to play despite the risk.

    so is the prospect of playing in nyc so much worse?

  • Todd Spehr

    Does this mean Stevie Franchise will retire as well?

    This is really a shame. I’ve been a fan of Cat since his first year in Houston and have always hoped for the best for him. Gotta consider health first though.

    @ Todd – this will have Steve grieving a death of sorts! I wish he would retire so my team could spend money on someone else.

    meh, cats have nine lives, he should’ve risked it and kept playing

    So, what are the future options at guard for the depleted Knicks? I guess Coach D’s going with seven in the rotation for the forseeable future. I can’t wait to see how this works on the second night of back-to-backs.
