One week after suffering a heart attack, Sabonis was released from a Lithuania hospital, according to several international news reports.

The towering 7-foot-3 Sabonis apparently left in good spirits after his health scare.

“The doctors told me, ‘You can’t smoke, you can’t drink, you can’t play basketball.’ So of the things I like, only sex is left,” Sabonis told reporters Tuesday outside the hospital where he was treated in Kaunas, his hometown.
