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.

primetime, you go get an English book and learn some grammar and reading comprehension!

If you missed the rest of the conversation, you'd notice that someone claimed he was a starter. I never said he wasn't a part of the team and was the last man off the bench. I said he wasn't a starter in 1990. I think CBS needs to offer anger management to some of it's 99 reps. They seem to get into this a bit too much.

Get your head out of your A$$... Who cares if he started or didnt. Who cares how many minutes he played...He was a part of those teams no matter how many games he started or how many minutes he played.
 He was one of the Bad Boys!!!

This story was about him getting ill at the gym and them not knowing exactly whats wrong with him.

He has been a great mentor in the Texas area for the young kids and has not gotten in trouble like other athletes.

So crawl back in hole and SHUT UP!

  • Who cares about who started on the Pistons?  The guy collapses on the treadmill and that's what you're worried about?  I remember these guys being the main contributors which def included Mark, I went to the games too as I was in high school there.

    Isiah "Zeke"
  • Joe DuuuuuuuuuuuuuMaaaaaars
  • Dennis the worm
  • Bill Laaaaaaaaimbeer
  • Vinnie the Microwave - and he could heat it up
  • Mark A
  • James Buddha Edwards (probably because he looked like he smoke the Buddha all the time)
  • Spider Salley
  • also, it should be noted that I looked up the minutes played and the forwards were pretty much interchangeable for the record, with no one playing more than 33 (Lamb) and no less than 23 (Salley) in 1990.

And sportsman, you'd still be wrong because the 1990 championship team, he started less than half of their games. Laimbeer 81, Thomas 81, Dumars 71, Edwards 70, and Rodman 43 all started more games than he did. Sure, he had an impact, but he was essentially a 6th man on that team. He also was 6th in mpg so it's not like he was playing starter minutes either. He played as often as Vinnie Johnson and John Salley. Only difference is he put up a few more shots. It's not to say he didn't have a part, but when you are 6th in minutes played, you are closer to a 6th man than a starter.

Jet fan  The comment was about the "TWO" championships the pistons won and not his entire career with the pistons.

I think Joe Dumars, Vinnie Johnson, Bill Laimbeer, John Salley and Dennis Rodamn might think differently.  They were a great team.
Aguirre put DePaul on the map.  Get well soon Mark. In your prime, you were truly unstoppable.
