A couple rosters’ worth of basketball players got together at the Toyota Center in Houston on Saturday for health screenings, the first implementation of a program for retired players started by the National Basketball Players Association.

About 25 retired NBA players showed up for the screenings, which included heart testing. The NBPA initiated talks on the screenings at their July meetings, and the effort was given added urgency with the heart-related deaths of Moses Malone and Darryl Dawkins.
