Former Sun, Laker, Raptor, Maverick and Piston Cedric Ceballos hasn’t been in the news much lately since his retirement from the NBA in 2001, but yesterday changed all that when it came out that Ceballos survived “a series of small heart attacks” and luckily cheated death. Here’s what the former All-Star’s publicist had to say about the event:
Crystal Guy[publicist] says Ceballos, a former NBA All-Star, was scheduled to undergo surgery in Phoenix.
The 42-year-old Ceballos issued a statement saying how fortunate he was to have decided to have his symptoms checked out at a hospital Sunday. Ceballos thanked all who called in support but the family asked for privacy at this time.
How baller is Cedric Ceballos? This is a man that just “decided” to go get himself “checked out” after SURVIVING multiple heart attacks. No AMBER LAMPS for him. That is the definition of ballerhood right there, (well that and congestive heart disease probably, but i digress). I’d like to see some wannabe sucka ballers do that! You youngins might not remember how badass Ceballos was…luckily, I am here to remind you.
