Michael Wilbon on Freeman's Diagnosis

Michael Wilbon wrote a column about diabetes and athletes today in the Washington Post. 

I love Michael Wilbon (especially since he picked us to go to the Final Four on PTI in the 2006-07 season before the tournament started)

Undoubtedly, the diagnosis Freeman received recentlymust have scared him half to death. It scares all of us, me two years ago at 49 when doctors told me I had Type 2 diabetes and would have to change my lifestyle forever . . . or else. Freeman, his diagnosis so new, probably hasn't even gotten to the point at which he's formulating complicated questions. But he will. And he's going to hear from doctors, from friends and neighbors and perhaps even relatives who have the disease that diabetes should not slow him down, should not limit his life's options, should not make him infirm or physically unable to pursue most, if not all, of his passions.

Stay Casual, my friends.
