Brian Windhorst

I know a lot of us are big fans of his and some of you may have read this on Truehoop, or somewhere else but I thought I would post this from Truehoop for the people who haven't heard.

Think Good Thoughts for Brian Windhorst

June 24, 2008 6:27 PM

Brian Windhorst is, hands down, one of the best and hardest working writers in sports. His work for the Akron Beacon-Journal (and here on is a must-read for me, every day, and his book about LeBron James and the Cavaliers is tremendous.

He is a great guy to know away from sports -- funny, smart, warm.

He has honored TrueHoop more than once by sitting in for me when I have been on vacation.

And at the moment, Brian Windhorst is also in the hospital and pretty sick.

Some people close to Brian have asked a small favor of TrueHoop readers: Pray. Think good thoughts ... do what you can to send good optimism and love to Brian in the hospital.

It just might help.


Hopefully, he can make a full recovery. I did some googling to see what the medical condition was and from what someone posted on a message board it's double pneumonia. The post said he was in critical condition, but I'm not sure if that's true or not. He is by far one of the best beat writers and one of the best on the NBA, his insight with the draft and potential trades will be missed this week.
