Oscar Cabrera: Spain Basketball Player Collapses on The Court, While U.S. Sports League Suffer Mass COVID-19 Outbreaks Among Fully Vaccinated Players
Mr. Oscar Cabrera.
SANTANDER, CANTABRIA — An enthralling goal in soccer, a breathtaking slam dunk in basketball, a dramatic home run in baseball. Those are the highlights fans expect to see in their respective favorite sports. But in 2021, fans and players just hope to get through an entire game without seeing the new genre of highlights.
Cantbasket and CB Santuryzi SK, of the fourth-tier Liga EBA basketball system in Spain, were facing off at Exterior Pavilion of La Albericia in Santander on December 18. Cantbasket guard/forward and Dominican Republic native Oscar Cabrera was inbounding the ball with 2:49 left in the first quarter. He stood there, seemingly confused or in some sort of trance for a second or two, dropped the basketball, and collapsed to the floor.
