Sabonis limited upon hospital release
Basketball Hall of Famer Arvydas Sabonis was released from a Lithuania hospital with lifestyle limitations Tuesday, one week after suffering a heart attack.
Sabonis, 46, suffered a heart attack in a pickup game last week in his hometown of Kaunas. He is to return home and will be monitored for six months.
“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.
The 7-3 Sabonis was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in August. He was an international superstar who played seven seasons with Portland in the NBA.
