Dampier Speaks... Finally

The DMN has a long awaited piece on Dampier's health issues.  After two weeks of mystery, Dampier told Chuck Cooperstein after the Nets game that he was having numbness in his arm, and now he expands on that.

"I was out there doing my normal routine and I kind of felt light-headed," Dampier said. "Light-headed, and my heart rate was a little high."

"They just wanted to take every precaution," he said. "You don't want to be out there running up and down the floor and something happens. It was a good thing [to get checked out]. Everything came back negative."

"It really wasn't anything to be worried about," he said. "I had to meet with a couple different doctors and I got a lot of information from those guys. It wasn't anything that was really scary. I just wanted to make sure to take every precaution to make sure nothing was wrong."

"The reason why it took so long is they had to run a lot of tests to make sure everything was OK. There were no problems. And I don't really foresee there being any more problems."

Sounds like it shouldn't be a problem moving forward which is good news.
