Some shocking news coming out of the NBA.

After a scary experience with an irregular heartbeat, veteran big man LaMarcus Aldridge has decided to put his health first and retire from the game of basketball.

“Though I’m better now, what I felt with my heart that night was still one of the scariest things I’ve experience,” said Aldridge.

“With that being said, I’ve made the difficult decision to retire from the NBA. For 15 years, I’ve put basketball first, and now, it is time to put my health and family first.”
