Salt Lake Tribune Reporting: Hot Rod Hundley has Alzheimers Disease

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Long Time play-by-play voice for the Utah Jazz, Hot Rod Hundley diagnosed with Alzheimers

Steve Luhm of the Salt Lake Tribune reported tonight that Hot Rod has Alzheimers and it is in the 'moderate" stage.

From the Tribune article:

Hundley, 79, lives in Arizona with his partner, Kim Reardon. She told The Salt Lake Tribune this week that the disease has progressed to a "moderate" stage.

Hundley no longer speaks to large groups, Johnson said. But they plan to attend festivities in Utah next week, when the Jazz will honor former coach Jerry Sloan.

As a longtime Jazz fan, this news breaks my heart. I feel sad.

Listen to Hod Rod exclaim "hammer dunk" in this Stockton to Malone fast break.

We love you Hot Rod. Our prayers are with you and your family.
