08:02 AM ET 02.08 | Sitting and watching has been hard on Channing Frye -- painful, even. "Ouch!" he yelled during a phone interview with USA TODAY Sports this week. "Stepped on a lego ..." Aside from the occasional hazards that come with the increased Daddy Duty, Frye is loving the new ways of his world. The married father of two learned in September that a virus in his heart was causing it to grow to a life-threatening size, and his career as a sharpshooting big man came to a scary halt as a result. He is "95 percent positive" that he'll be healthy enough to return for next season, yet still acknowledges that there's a slim chance he may never play again. ... It takes a certain kind of maturity to make the most of a situation like this, but Frye is clearly doing just that.

Hopefully he won't end up like the sad majority of players who end up broke after two or three years of retiring.
