We told you last night that Steve Clifford had been released from the hospital, but it now seems that he has returned to the Bobcats.
“I was lucky. It was a warning sign and I’ve since been educated that a lot of people who have strokes or heart attacks don’t get warning signs,” Clifford said. “Also fortunate I had great doctors. They have a good plan for me, and I’m going to follow it and get better quickly.”
This is great news for not just the Bobcats, but for Clifford’s family. The Bobcats are 3-3 on the young season, and that’s with Al Jefferson missing the last 5 games. It isn’t likely that Charlotte will make the playoffs, but they should be improved this year, and Clifford is a great coach. They do have some young talent that needs to be developed, but if they can get a high draft pick this year, the Bobcats could see themselves in the playoffs next year. Albeit as the Hornets, though.
