That’s a rough diagnosis. Hopefully he receives a transplant, or some other treatment to prolong his life.

Read about this maybe on cnn, very interesting article about former players health issues.  Tiny went in for routine check up which is covered by nba system and discovered this heredity disease.  Amazing player, great guy, he's pushing the point of all former nba players should use this health system and being tested for cure for his heart ailment.  As he stated if not for him maybe the next person.  Anyone too young to remember tiny, watch highlights, pre celtics days this was one of the best players in the nba.
