Default something is seriously wrong with Nene

there's something pretty serious going down here. i hope its not what I think it is but George Karl's press conference last night was entirely about cancer and how to deal with it. Then you had the hero of the game Anthony Carter saying how he's been trying to keep from crying all day. Iverson spent his press conference last night talking about how basketball doesnt matter in a life or death situation like this. Whatever it is. No ones saying.

Nene has never lived up to his hype, he's had some issues, but damn I hope he ends up okay.

Nene's Nuggets family able to help with health concern

By Dave Krieger, Rocky Mountain News (Contact)
Saturday, January 12, 2008

It is only human nature that the first thoughts are the most fearsome.

You hear that Nuggets forward Nene is taking a sudden, indefinite leave of absence from the team "to tend to a personal medical issue," and dire possibilities tumble across the mind.

"I told the team (Friday) morning our concern is to support him and be a family for him," coach George Karl said. "I'm sure it's difficult living in a foreign country trying to figure out some health problems."

If it were a basketball-related injury, the Nuggets would be required to disclose it. In the case of a medical issue unrelated to basketball, it is entirely Nene's call as to whether its precise nature is divulged publicly.

Under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, the Nuggets are required to respect Nene's wishes on this.

"My family and I ask that you respect our privacy at this time," Nene said in a statement issued by the club just before tipoff Friday night at the Pepsi Center. He was not on hand for his team's victory over the Orlando Magic.

Damn. Something about athletes having non sports related health issues always kinda threw me. They seem kinda bigger than life. **** like this is depressing. I hope he gets through whatever it is.

Get well soon Nene!

He's a good player, but the Nuggets always seem to have bad luck with their three headed monster (Camby,Kmart & Nene.) due to injury and health issues.

Here's hoping he will be fine.

I'm thinking it's a heart condition...

Holy sh!t, I hope it's nothing that serious but it does look like the players are treating it that way.

Get well soon Nene.

whao - that's a pretty big shock to me, but again like others, I hope nothing is wrong with him, but this article and the comments by ainugguets has really has me concerned about Nene... even with all the findings, I'd rather not speculate anything just yet...

I sincerely hope Nene is not seriously ill. We talk about how there are players we hate, but I don't think anyone is sick enough to wish something like this on a player.

And who woulda thought that Camby would be the least injured out of the three?

the only announcement is that he'll be undergoing surgery for "something" on Tuesday.

there's speculation that its a Lance Armstrong thing if you know what i mean, but at least he'll live if thats the case. who knows.

an insider for the Nuggets only commented "All I can say now is, thank God for random NBA drug tests". so something must've been found that way.
