Treatable congenital heart defect. Expected to return to basketball soon

Once again, NOT the covid vaccine as some people tried to 'report' shortly after this happened.

It's not surprising that people who use social media as their main learning source are going to have a hard time navigating science from not science and facts from fiction. https://www.pewresearch.org/journalism/2020/07/30/americans-who-mainly-get-their-news-on-social-media-are-less-engaged-less-knowledgeable/

I hope Bronny continues to rest up and gets right before resuming play. I would think this gave the family a scare and they all realize that Bronny can do anything he wants if he quits basketball. If he wants to keep playing, I hope he's monitored daily. Basketball puts a heavy load on cardiovascular system.

Very true. It's encouraging how medical staff have gotten quite good at identifying and treating these heart issues in basketball. Things have come a long way from the days of Reggie Lewis.

The important thing for those people is that they got the (false) word out first, in 120 characters, with no substantiation needed, and thatís what people will remember. This is what our public discourse has become - who can get the first word out.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

It's hardly a new thing, some form of the adage "a lie can make it halfway around the world before the truth has even put it's boots on" has been around for hundreds of years at least. The Internet makes it easier and faster, but it didn't create the problem
I'm bitter.
