Blazers Oberto announces retirement

Quote:
Trail Blazers center Fabricio Oberto has announced today that he has retired from the game of basketball due to recurrent palpitations related to a prior cardiac condition.

Oberto experienced lightheadedness and dizziness during the first half of Portland’s game at Milwaukee on Nov. 2.

"I made this decision to put my health and my family in front of basketball," said Oberto. "It was a tough decision to make after playing for so many years, but it was the right one."

Just talked to RC Buford, who calls retiring ex-Spur Fabricio Oberto, "One of the greatest competitors in international basketball history."

Buford: "Fab was really the leader of the golden era of Argentinian basketball...Almost never the best player but always the best teammate."

I was somewhat excited when my roommate told me he saw Oberto hanging with Bargnani here in Vancouver during preseason. Turns out it was actually Anderson.

Hope he's able to fully enjoy his life post ball.

wow.. the Trail Blazers are seriously screwed at the 5 spot.

Przy = Injured
Oden = Injured
Fabio = Retired

and it's only a matter of time before Marcus Camby gets injured.
