As Hoops Nation turns it’s attention to the March Madness frenzy down in the NCAA, the NBA is still putting up showstopping plays.
Last week, there was much ado about the status of the San Antonio Spurs, the ever-changing situation with the Golden State Warriors and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
The biggest news to jump from last week revolved around Spurs forward LaMarcus Aldridge. The five-time All-Star is out indefinitely due to a minor heart arrhythmia, according to Spurs coach Gregg Popovich who told the NBA that Aldridge told the team that “he felt a little odd” during San Antonio’s 112-102 loss at Oklahoma City on Thursday.
“Somebody says a heart, you start thinking a little more possible long-term kind of stuff, that’s a little scary,” Popovich said. “But you don’t go there yet. They’re doing tests. They did some tests today and they’re going to continue it on Monday. He’s going to see some people on Monday, and based on what they do and see, we’ll figure then what we’re really looking at. We really don’t know right now.”
Our thoughts and prayers are with Aldridge. As the basketball world awaits the information on his condition, check out the plays that filled out the rest of last week’s notable moments.
