LaMarcus Aldridge retires from NBA after irregular heartbeat, the player announced.
NBA star LaMarcus Aldridge is putting an end to his career at the age of 35 due to heart problems, he announced on his Twitter account on Thursday.
Last month, he joined the Brooklyn Nets to finally win a ring. Barely a few weeks later, his career has come to an end after he experienced irregular heartbeat during the game against the Lakers on Sunday.
“My last game I played while dealing with an irregular heartbeat.”, Aldridge admits. “Later that night my rhythm got even worse which really worried me even more.”, says the former Portland player in this letter.
