    That's terrible although they said he seemed alert so I hope that's a good sign.

    Hope everything is alright with Rick.

    Always felt bad that he took the heat here for things that weren't his fault.

    Here's to a speedy recovery, Rick!

    I fainted once before. I hope he didn't hit his head on the floor when he collapsed.

    I bet it turns out to be dehydration.

    I contend about 60% of the population walks around dehydrated and they don't even know it

    This is a scary thing. My mind immediately went to guys like Dennis Johnson, Reggie Lewis, and Pistol Pete Maravich. Of course I'm hoping this isn't nearly as serious.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    I was going to comment on what a classy moment it was to make a joke, but I refrained.

    Well, I think you're all wet!

    Carlisle probably just passed out when he heard Marion say he was OK with coming off the bench.

    I had a Health Class that was taught by a Personal Trainer a few years ago. You're absolutely right, from what she told me, many people walk around with improper amounts of fluids inside their body. And it was a pretty good percentage for athletes. I wish I could remember the exact percentages, but it's college and let's be honest, I wasn't paying THAT much attention.

    Update: He's apparently fine but I still don't think its normal for him to collapse like that something is off

    Rick Carlisle collapses at practice

    ESPN.com news services
    Rick Carlisle Collapses
    Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle collapsed at practice Friday and was taken off the court on a stretcher and to a hospitalTags: NBA, Dallas Mavericks

    Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle said "everything's fine" after he collapsed at practice and was taken off the court on a stretcher and to the hospital earlier in the day.

    Mavericks president of basketball operations Donnie Nelson said Carlisle was "lightheaded and fainted" on the court Friday at American Airlines Center. Carlisle was released from the hospital later Friday afternoon.

    "I got up early, had breakfast, took my daughter to school, came in, worked out, had a couple of Balance bars, a couple Mountain Dews, had a staff meeting and got ready for practice," Carlisle told Galloway & Company on ESPN 103.3 FM in Dallas. "I got to feeling a little lightheaded, fainted and, before I knew it, they were pulling me out of there on a stretcher.


    "Everything's fine. I'm looking foward to taking a day or two here to spend a little time with my daughter. I'll be back at it on Monday."

    Carlisle said he will not join the Mavericks for Saturday's outdoor exhibition game against Phoenix in Indian Wells, Calif. Nelson said Dwane Casey will coach the team.

    "The ballboys forgot to do the laundry," Nelson joked to Galloway & Company. "... He got lightheaded and fainted, and who hasn't done that? You take every precaution when it does happen, and so we wanted to make sure everything was perfect. And it is."

    The 50-year-old coach was conscious and responding to questions as he was carried by stretcher to an ambulance and taken to a nearby hospital. Team personnel were with him.

    "We were going through warm-ups. Nothing out of the ordinary," Nelson said. "It happens. Just when it does happen, it catches you off guard and you have to take every
    precaution ...

    "I was there the night that Hank [Gathers] went down. And when stuff like that happens, you take fainting a whole lot differently. It's something you have to take seriously. We did, and everything has checked out. So we just turn the page and move on from here."

    Gathers was a standout basketball player at Loyola Marymount who collapsed on the court in 1990 and died due to a heart disorder.

    Assistant coach Terry Stotts was on the court when Carlisle fell.

    "He was pale, but he was alert and talking to Casey [Smith, the Mavericks' athletic trainer]," Stotts told the Dallas Morning News. "We're all concerned about him and hopefully everything is OK and it's just a one-time thing."


    "I heard the fall," point guard Jason Kidd said, according to the newspaper. "We don't know what the situation is. Basketball is our job, but life comes before our job or anything else. Your well-being is the most important thing. That's our coach and our family member. We got to make sure he's all right and we'll go from there."

    Carlisle, who coached the Mavericks to an 88-83 exhibition victory over the Chicago Bulls on Thursday night, is starting his third season as coach of the Mavericks after stints with the Pacers and Pistons. He was named NBA coach of the year in his first season on the bench, guiding Detroit to a 50-32 record in 2001-02. He also played five years in the league, with Boston, New York and New Jersey.

    It is a kind of urban myth that a majority of the population walks around dehydrated all the time. There's no scientific evidence to support it, only old health adages. You only need to replace the amount of water your body excretes daily (urine, breath, pores, etc.), and it's really not that hard to do. After the water most Americans get from their food, whatever other water they get from the incidental coffees, sodas, milk/OJ's, or gatorades through the day is enough. Most Americans are well-hydrated.

    Ask a doctor who has actually looked into this stuff, or a nephrologist. We have abundant access to both foods and fluids--for so many of us to have a fluid imbalance would be highly unusual.

    I can only speak for myself.



    However, every time I go to the doctor I am told I do not have enough water in my system.



    I was always told I was extremely dehydrated when I ran track, but multiple doctors have told me I need to up my water in take.



    Then again, my mom has the same problem, so it could be hereditary.

    Is your doctor accepting new patients by any chance?

    I'm not a doctor, but I have researched this issue as it became important issues as my mom and now my dad has had serious health issues.

    I think sure you are partially correct. you do get a lot of water from food (depending on what food you eat)

    But lets examine what a lot of people do everyday. They wake up and have coffee all morning, then maybe have soda for lunch and all afternoon and then maybe beer or wine with dinner and then another drink after dinner. People who do that are severally dehydrated. Caffeine itself make you dehydrated, same with alcohol. People who do this need to drink a ton of water

    But lets say you have a heathy breakfast with maybe some juice, and don't have caffeine all day and you eat a decent amount of fruits ad vegatables. Then sure for those people you don't need that much water to stay hydrated.
