The news (or is it just a rumor) that Blazer rookie big man LaMarcus Aldridge is sidelined indefinitely while they run tests to find out what caused his dizziness and irregular heartbeat the other night is scary. I'm not talking team-will-be-worse-without-him scary, although there's some of that. I'm talking affable-cleancut-talented-young-man-who-could-suddenly-be-a-heart-patient scary.

Let's hope it's something simple and correctable. He was dehydrated. Some sort of dietary supplement that he's taking knocked him out of whack. He's low on some vitamin or mineral. Not enough potassium, something like that.

He seems like a guy who deserves a long and prosperous career as an athlete. So for the love of the Rose City, pray, keep your fingers crossed, cast your spell, do whatever you can do to affect the outcome.

Well said, Jack.

Really hoping that this is nothing serious and that he makes a speedy recovery.

Potassium - too much or too little can kill you. It is the main ingredient in the lethal injections used to execute our worst offenders. This is a wake up call for those taking mineral depleting supplements. Don't neglect your daily dose of banannas, or better yet, those tasty strawberries already available at some retailers.
