LaMarcus Aldridge Retires from NBA Over Heart Ailment: After experiencing an irregular heartbeat, Brooklyn Nets center LaMarcus Aldridge abruptly ended his 15-season NBA career. Aldridge joined the team two weeks ago after taking a buyout from the San Antonio Spurs. He's a seven-time All-Star. He called the heart problem experienced during a game "one of the scariest things I've experienced."

Good decision on LaMarcus' part. We've lost too many athletes both college and pro to cardiac causes.
There are still vast gaps in the availability of cardio diagnostic and preventative care for young players.
