That’s one of the main reasons the cardiovascular screening program was initiated, said Joe Rogowski, the NBPA’s Director of Sports Medicine and Research. The first one was held in Houston in December. Saturday’s event included Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins, Hawks Vice Chairman Grant Hill, who was instrumental in the event being held at Philips Arena, as well as more recently retired players like Tony Delk. “This is fantastic,” Delk said. “I’m 42 and very conscious of my health now that I’ve stopped playing. So when I heard they were offering this program free to retired players, I made sure to get my name on the list. When you’re playing, you take so much of this for granted, you’re talking about some of the best-conditioned athletes in the world. But none of us is immune to the issues that come with getting older.”
Josh Childress on veteran influence in the NBA: “I can tell this story. One of my vets was Tony Delk, played at Kentucky, great guy. I had this like toiletry bag. It might have been a team issue toiletry back or it was from Target or something, but it wasn’t super expensive. It was like falling apart. He was like “C’mon man. You’re an NBA player. What are you going to do with that? C’mon rook! You got to get yourself something nice. You’re a professional. You can’t walk around with this nonsense.” That was the first time I felt like – yeah, not pressured, but like I had to represent myself like a professional. I ended up going out and getting me like a Louie Vuitton one.”
