    Will Blalock Suffers Stroke

    Just thought I would like to share some information with the Cyclone Fanatic nation... Last week former Cyclone, Will Blalock, was sitting in the Boston airport on his way to Seattle, WA for an NBA mini-camp with the Seattle Sonics when he suffered a stroke. This occured from a blood clot in Blalock's neck which eventually lead to a shortage of blood flow to the brain. After being hospitalized Will found out that he was not going to be able to play basketball for the next 4-6 months. My thoughts and prayers go out to Will and his family.

    Will and his family is in my thoughts and prayers as well. Basketball is such a small thing in comparison to the big picture.

    If he's anything like he was on the court, I know he'll bounce back and live to the fullest.

    Scary to have that happen at such a young age. Prayers are with the Blalock family.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Scary, I'm not sure what kind of medical support there is at most airports. We pray for a quick recovery.
