Mark Aguirre Mavericks

Former All-Star Mark Aguirre falls at gym, in serious condition


Mark Aguirre, the former Piston player and Dallas Mavericks All-Star, fell at the gym Wednesday and is listed in serious condition, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Reports coming to Mavericks officials after practice was that he “was OK” the paper reports, but there were few details. Apparently he collapsed while running on a treadmill and hit his head.

Aguirre was at the Life Time Fitness in Plano (Texas) and rescue workers arrived quickly and had him breathing into an oxygen mask, according to a member of the gym. Aguirre works out at the club frequently, according to other patrons.

Aguirre is a DePaul legend, the No. 1 pick overall in 1981 who went on to play seven-and-a-half seasons with the Dallas Mavericks. He was a three-time All-Star and still holds the team’s single-season scoring record.

He was traded to the Detroit Pistons where he won two rings as a role player on the “Bad Boy” teams.

Our wishes go out to Aguirre, hoping nothing is seriously wrong and hoping for a speedy recovery.

Miami is going to be a lot of fun to watch this season (if they can stay healthy).

They’ve got athletic, active players who want to run, who move off the ball, and they have good passers. For example, watch Chris Bosh go between the legs to Dwyane Wade in the Heat’s preseason game Sunday.

Bosh had 14 points, and Wade had a dozen, but Charlotte won the exhibition.

The Clippers went north of the border to take on the Raptors in an exhibition game, but it was on the West Coast of Canada in one of the world’s prettiest cities — Vancouver. The two played at the Rogers Arena.

Where, they may want to upgrade the shot clocks behind the backboards. Watch over the shoulder of the Clippers announcers as Griffin dunks in warmups.

Notice that DeAndre Jordan loves this.

Nice to see Griffin dunking like his old self again. If you want another view, the NBA retweeted this.
