When Boston Celtics GM Danny Ainge realized that his prized center Kevin Garnett might miss the entire playoffs, he had a totally subdued reaction and took the news in stride. Just kidding–he had a heart attack. From Y! News:
“Danny Ainge is recovering at Massachusetts General Hospital after having a minor heart attack. He is recovering nicely,” the team said. “Mr. Ainge is expected to remain in the hospital for a few days.”
A spokeswoman for Massachusetts General Hospital referred comment to the team
Ainge is 50 years old if anyone cares. Garnett’s knee injury has limited his action in games over the past several weeks, but only recently was an announcement made about his status for the postseason. My dad had a heart attack once, but that’s because he’s grossly overweight and hates everything. I’m struggling to see how that’s Kevin Garnett’s fault.
