More specifically, Clifford pointed out he will return to the sideline when the Bobcats take on the Atlanta Hawks on Nov. 11. The 52-year-old head coach experienced chest pains last Thursday while having dinner and was immediately rushed to a local hospital. 

The very next day, doctors inserted two stents to his heart to prevent blockage, per the Associated Press.

Clifford is happy to report everything has been fine since then.

"I feel fine. I haven't had any pain, even minor pain, since the incident.

"I had significant pain in my chest and I was having trouble breathing. So it was scary enough where I had them call 911. And I was lucky that I did...Once I got to the hospital, I felt good."

Bobcats associate head coach Patrick Ewing, a close friend of Clifford dating back to their days as assistants for the Orlando Magic and Houston Rockets, spoke with the Charlotte Observer's Rick Bonnell during morning shoot-around on the day of the surgery. 

"He just wasn't feeling well so he's at the hospital getting some tests.

"My emotions are all about Cliff and the team. He's a very close friend of mine and I'm worried about his health, safety and well-being. We have a great staff assembled here, so if he does not make it (to the game), the rest of the staff and I will have to carry on." 

The Associated Press report goes on to say that Clifford will follow a health plan which his doctors laid out. The Bobcats mentor also said he will change his eating habits. 

"At least I got a warning signal. Things worked out well. The doctors have me on a good plan and I'm going to follow it. 

"I will have to (change his diet), but it's only been two days and obviously it hasn't shown up yet." 

Clifford is on his first year as Charlotte's head coach. He was an assistant with the Los Angeles Lakers last season before he was hired on May 28 to replace Mike Dunlap to call the shots for the Bobcats.

Realistic Expectations for Lance Stephenson's Debut Season as Charlotte Hornet

Aug 1 2014 4:12am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There are two kinds of big acquisitions a sports team can make. A team can add a player who brings a dynamic that it’s been sorely lacking; who obliterates a weakness the organization has long been plagued by; who adds a wholly new look or attitude for a group whose way of doing things has grown stale. Then there’s the player who’s a perfect schematic fit—who makes sense with that organization precis ...

Why Lance Stephenson Will Take Major Pressure off of Al Jefferson

Jul 29 2014 6:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

There's no question that Al Jefferson had an outstanding season with the Charlotte Hornets last year. He took a team wading at the bottom of the Eastern Conference to the playoffs, giving it a legitimate and primary offensive threat to take pressure off of the young players still developing their games.  Still, the team's 101.2 offensive rating ranked 24th in the league, according to NBA.com. Defenses were able to pa ...

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Lance Stephenson doesn’t want to be known as the guy who blew in LeBron James’ ear. Stephenson said during his introductory news conference Friday in Charlotte he’s “a little upset” that the ear-blowing incident in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals against Miami is how some people have defined him as a player. “I feel like it overshadowed my play on the court,” Stephenson said. “I bring more to the table than just blowin ...
