Celtics strength and conditioning coach Bryan Doo helped save a man's life during a pickup basketball game at the Hyde Park Community Center in Newton on Wednesday.
Chuck Conley passed out during a water break and his heart stopped, when Doo grabbed the defibrillator that was hanging on the wall.
The only part that made me nervous is when the machine said press the button, shock him, Doo told WCVB TV.
The point is I think anybody could have done it. I think I was there, and it happened to be me.
Doo restarted Conley's heart before he was taken to the hospital. Conley had a clogged artery and had surgery to fix the problem.
According to WCVB TV, the defibrillator was placed in the gym by local doctors who had lost a friend that was playing basketball at the gym.
BOSTON -- Avery Bradley, whose flu-like symptoms landed him in the hospital and forced him to miss Friday’s game against Phoenix, tells CSNNE.com that he will play tonight.
“I didn’t get [out of the hospital] until [Saturday] evening,” Bradley told CSNNE.com. “My stomach still hurts a little bit, but I’m all right. I’ll be good.”
The importance of Bradley to this team cannot be overstated.
His ability to make a major impact both as a scorer and an elite defender separates him from not only his teammates but from most guards in the NBA.
However, his health has been a season-long issue in some form or another, which can be seen in the fact that he has missed 24 games via injury or illness -- more than any other player on the Celtics roster.
When he has played, Bradley has delivered on several fronts.
He’s averaging 16.9 points per game while averaging 6.2 rebounds per game - both career highs -- which rank second and third, respectively, on the Celtics roster this season.
