LaMarcus's heart

Blazers rookie big guy LaMarcus Aldridge has been diagnosed with an electrical problem in the heart, for which the team says he has received "successful treatment." He's done for the season, but they say he can play ball again soon.

The particular abnormality he's said to have is discussed here. I'll let the medically more astute explain what it all means, but it appears possible that it may be curable, and even that Aldridge has been cured. Let's hope so.

For those who go back 15-20 years, Duke Wallenborn, who was a outstanding basketball player for Mt. View HS in Vancouver, died of this 2 weeks before he was to have it fixed back in 1991 or so while @ W. Washington. He was about 20 when he died. Terry(sic) Frei wrote a fantastic article on Duke's funeral which I attended. Congrats on LaMarcus getting this fixed.
