Retired basketball player Arvydas Sabonis is a very large human being. At 7-foot-6, Sabonis is one of the biggest players to ever have played in the NBA. Considering his impressive stature, it is no surprise that the 46-year-old has had heart issues and recently suffered from a heart attack.
Now recovering from the heart attack that the Lithuanian basketball player suffered a week ago, Arvydas said he has been ordered to take it easy and not play basketball. In fact, he can’t really do much of anything according to Lithuanian basketball source @LithuaniaBasket.
“Doctors told me I can’t smoke, can’t drink, can’t play basketball,” Sabonis said. “All that’s left is sex.”
Cheer up, big fella. It could be worse. Many heart attack victims are even advised to avoid that activity, so you’re a step ahead of the game. Plus the no drinking and no smoking thing will probably help keep you around for a few more years. Best of luck to Sabonis with the rest of his recovery.
