College basketball commentator Dick Vitale, a Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer who for the last four decades has served as an ESPN personality, revealed on Monday that he has been diagnosed with lymphoma, a rare form of cancer. It's the second time in the span of a few months he has been diagnosed with cancer after announcing in August a melanoma diagnosis that required multiple surgeries.

Vitale has been cleared of the melanoma diagnosis already but will have to undergo six months of chemotherapy and a steroid regimen to fight the lymphoma.
