      Larry Brooks had speculated in Sunday's editions of the New York Post that this press conference would be to announce Burns' firing.

      Here's hoping he can recover and return to the bench whenever the next season is. He's a damn good coach.

        52 years old?

        Sounds like they're using radiation.

        Surgery is usually the treatment of choice - if it will help.

        Not a great sign.
        And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

            If i'm not mistaken, colon cancer doesn't have a very good recovery rate.

              If they aren't able to remove it surgically, it kills you.

              If it gets to the liver, it's over.

              And, if memory serves, the liver is the next stop when it spreads.

                            it's a bad thing.

                            I know someone who just passed from it. Last time I saw her was December when we were planning to go to some Cardinal games this year.

                            We both knew those games just weren't going to happen.

                            The tumor was enormous.
