    Yeah, it does seem like athletes/coaches in New Orleans have an inordinate amount of tragedies befall them. Ryan Anderson, Will Smith, Monty Williams (even though he was in OKC at the time, the ties are still there), Jrue Holiday. That really sucks. I hope Lauren makes a full recovery, and they can be a happy, healthy family soon.

    Lol at "If i were a fan I'd be pissed". Totally unreasonable to be with your pregnant wife who is going to have surgery to remove a tumor. #ballislife

    If you were a GM, you would trade him away too right? while he's with his ill wife.

    You'd be pissed if a member of the Rockets had to miss time because their wife, who they love 100 fold more than the game of basketball, was having brain surgery? You are many things that are wrong with society, very sad.

    Even something like clipping an aneurysm has a 1/20 chance of serious complications. And all that arises from the simple fact that you're doing invasive brain surgery not the fact the specific procedure itself...
