Heart surgery? He's so young.

I am not a Celtics fan at all but this is such a HUGE hit to them. I wanted to see some rivalries going on but I am generally in shock. I feel bad for Celtics fans, I know they were expecting a huge season from him, especially after the Perkins trade.

That trade looks bad now....

Hope all goes well on the surgery and recovery.

Hate the Celtics with a passion but I dont wish bad health on anyone. Hope his surgery is successful and he makes a full recovery and plays next season. Good thing they found it now.

It's better for him this way. The kid didn't seem to care about his health at all when he was interviewed a couple of days ago, said he didn't know what was wrong with him, doctors found "something" and he was just focused on getting back to practice. I read it has to do with his aorta artery being bigger than normal, the biggest and most important in the whole body, so it's better to treat it than be playing on National TV and drop dead in the middle of a play.

wow youre clueless. They probably didn't tell him what was going on as a placebo so they can keep testing him.
