Mark Aguirre Falls At Gym, In Serious Condition

Former Piston and Dallas Maverick Mark Aguirre is in the critical care unit at The Medical Center of Plano and in serious condition after he fell ill Wednesday morning at a Plano-area fitness facility and was hospitalized, reports the Dallas Morning News.

Aguirre, 51, was reportedly working out on a treadmill when he became ill. A club patron told the News that he apparently lost consciousness and hit his head when he fell off the treadmill.

Several Maverick employees have been told Aguirre is “OK” although there aren’t any other details available. Aguirre was at the Life Time Fitness in Plano and rescue workers arrived quickly and had him breathing into an oxygen mask, according to the report.

Aguirre was part of two championship teams in Detroit and played seven seasons in Dallas for the Mavericks during the 1980s. Aguirre owns the Mavs’ single-season scoring record of 2,330 points (29.5 ppg) in the 1983-84 season. for more
