George Blaha Rumors
Rod Beard: #Blazers coach Chauncey Billups on George Blaha: “I just want to send my love to one of the greatest to ever do it, George Blaha. I hate that I’m not going to be able to see him today and give him a big squeeze, that’s my guy.”
Rod Beard: The #Pistons report that George Blaha underwent a successful heart bypass procedure earlier today. He is doing well and doctors will continue to monitor his recovery.
“I am disappointed to miss the remainder of the season, but my health is the number one priority right now, and I have a great team of doctors guiding my short-term and long-term health,” Blaha said in a team statement. “I’m grateful that they caught my issue early and they expect a full recovery. I look forward to getting back to full speed with rest and rehabilitation during the offseason and returning next year for my 47th season calling games for the Pistons.” Blaha has been behind the mic for all three of the Pistons’ championship seasons, and he has become synonymous with the Pistons throughout each of their eras.
