Cedric Ceballos hospitalized after “series of small heart attacks”


One of the more popular NBA role players of his era, Cedric Ceballos is in a Phoenix area hospital after suffering a series of small heart attacks.

He is doing well enough to have released this statement.

“I feel blessed and very fortunate to be here today and to have made the decision to go to the hospital and get my symptoms checked out late last night.  I ask everyone to keep me in your prayers as I make my journey back to good health.  Thank everyone who has called and is concerned.  While I want to respond and speak to everyone, I cannot right now, but will be in touch very soon.  God bless you.”

Ceballos played 11 seasons in the NBA and was with the Suns for more than half of those. You probably remember him best for winning the 1992 dunk contest blindfolded. Unless you’re a Lakers fan, then you remember the Jet Ski incident.

He remains a part of the Suns organization as the public address announcer at games and does a lot of public appurtenances for the team around the area.

If you’re a Knicks fan, the positive is that at least Kristaps Porzingis tried to make a play.

But he was not going to stop the athletic Bradley Beal with a full head of steam, and the result was a Beal dunking over Porzingis as he tries to block the attempt.

Beal wasn’t sharp, scoring 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting. The Knicks has an efficient Carmelo Anthony and that got them the win.
