What Walsh witnessed earlier that night was Mirza Teletovic, a forward with Brooklyn, struggling to breathe during a game and pleading for help. By the time they reached the hospital, Teletovic had calmed and the symptoms subsided. But Walsh wasn’t satisfied with the non-diagnosis. “My gut told me he’s not OK,” Walsh said. “I know the ER doctor is saying he’s OK, but something’s not right. So I said, ‘If they don’t want to do a CT, I’m going somewhere else to get one.'”
Walsh’s persistence resulted in that CT scan, which uncovered multiple blood clots in Teletovic’s lungs. Under those conditions, a plane ride to the next game could’ve hastened a pulmonary embolism. Instead, Teletovic was administered blood thinners, the clots dissolved, and he’s currently enjoying his sixth season in the NBA. “He could have gotten on the plane and he could have actually died,” former Nets coach Lionel Hollins said.
