LaMarcus Aldridge Retires from the NBA

In some shocking news out of Brooklyn, Nets center LaMarcus Aldridge has decided to retire from the NBA after experiencing an irregular heart beat in his last game played.

Aldridge just joined the Nets after being bought-out by the San Antonio Spurs and the former all-star was fitting in nicely for Brooklyn who are expected to go deep into the playoffs. They will be doing so without Aldridge who's health risks involved obviously outweigh the risk of continuing his basketball career. 

Aldridge has played through an irregular heart beat in the past and it appears it's unfortunately caught up to him. Aldridge retires after playing 1029 career games, averaging 19.4 points and 8.2 rebounds per game. 

We wish him health and happiness.
