Blaylock stable after car crash

JONESBORO, Ga. -- Former NBA All-Star guard Daron "Mookie" Blaylock was in stable condition at a hospital Friday after his SUV crossed the center line and crashed head-on into a van in suburban Atlanta, police said.

Blaylock was driving in Jonesboro on Friday when he crashed and was airlifted to the Atlanta Medical Center in critical condition, said Clayton County police spokesman Clarence Cox. Blaylock was on life support and unresponsive, but by Friday night, his condition had improved to stable, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

According to the newspaper, a family member told police that Blaylock, from Dallas, has been under treatment for seizures.

Cox says a man and woman riding in the van were also taken to the medical center. Their names and conditions were not immediately available.

The 46-year-old Blaylock was a first-round draft pick by the New Jersey Nets out of Oklahoma in 1989.

He played for the Atlanta Hawks from 1992-99, appeared in the 1994 NBA All-Star Game and had his best season in 1996-97, averaging 17.4 points and 5.9 assists

"Our thoughts are with Mookie Blaylock, who is in the hospital tonight after a car crash," the Hawks tweeted.

In 13 NBA seasons with New Jersey, Atlanta and Golden State, Blaylock averaged 13.5 points and 6.2 assists.

"Prayers out to Mookie Blaylock and his family! Big fan of his as a kid #PG #NBAFamily," Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul tweeted.
