Is there a real heart risk with Basketball?
I hear that 1 in 12 thousand college basketball players die from cardiac arrest on court per year. While that is a small percentage, it does sound like a real risk. If Basketball is played at a more moderate intensity, once or twice a week (and not the same amount as college athletes) and if you have no known heart issues, does Basketball present a real heart risk for that level of exercise/intensity? Also, do any of you know anyone that this has actually happened to?
