Default Randy Foye's heart is on the RIGHT side of his chest

Quote:
An interesting bit of information came up when Randy Foye underwent his physical last month in preparation for the NBA Draft: His heart is not in the normal place.

Several league sources say that Foye's heart is located in the right side of his chest. "The doctors say it's like looking in a mirror," says an Eastern Conference executive who received a briefing on Foye's condition.

A source at Villanova says the school became aware of his condition when Foye underwent a checkup for asthma. "The doctor couldn't find a heartbeat," the source says. "It was because his heart was on the other side."

Foye's camp investigated and was told by cardiologists that the rare condition posed no physical risk. The Chicago Bulls were among the teams aware of it, and based on their recent history with center Eddy Curry -- who was traded to New York last year after a series of highly publicized heart scares -- no team could be expected to take a harder look at Foye's condition than Chicago. But the Bulls' medical staff ultimately cleared him, and the Bulls say they would have taken him had he fit into their basketball plans.

All sources agree that Foye's condition has had no negative effect on his career nor is it expected to have any effect on his future.

That's crazy.

It would be funny if a sportscaster didn't know this, and say Foye got a technical for standing up for a teammate, and the announcer said "at least his heart's in the right place."

That would be like an all time historic funny cliche-gone-wrong. Kinda like when Bush called the Pope "a good American."

They knew atleast Foye's camp did. And Foye himself. He covered it up because he was afraid it would hurt his stock in the draft. Kept it hush hush and when doctors who never poked, proded, examined you before check you out...bam they are surprised. But if they checked his files/previous history med records they would find it. Yopur heart doesnt shift as you are born, when he was a baby it was known from day 1. It started to become a mystery or hush hush when he emerged as a really good bball player. Especially when he got to Nova.


And no one does surgery and not know where you're heart is.

Well, now anytime he tries to do something good and fails, you can just say, "His heart was in the right place."

Well, my friend has the same condition and he gets paid by the doctors for having his heart X-Rayed. Doctors like to experiment some things to see if there is a difference between "right" heart and "left" heart.
