Famous basketball announcer and New Jersey native Dick Vitale has been diagnosed with lymphoma.
This is the second time in just a few months that the broadcaster has been diagnosed with some form of cancer.
In August, Vitale announced that he had undergone several surgeries to get rid of melanoma.
Doctors don’t believe lymphoma is related. They say there is a 90% cure rate for the type of lymphoma he has.
Vitale grew up in Garfield and coached basketball in New Jersey. He was also an assistant coach at Rutgers University.
Vitale is with ESPN right after the network launched in 1979. He was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2008.
