I am glad he got his ring. Long live 'Zo.

The Miami Heat announced Thursday that former NBA All-Star center Alonzo Mourning will retire from the league. Mourning hasn’t played at all this season and played in only 25 games during the 2007-2008 season due to major leg injuries

Another player lost to retirement. Glad he was able to get a ring during his career.

It's sad to see him go, especially considering the way he received his career ending injury last year.

If Mourning didn't have that kidney transplant, he would have been one of the best centers ever. Seeing him work hard to get back to the game even though he's been through a lot of physical pain is just straight out inspiring.

The guy is the definition of PASSION, he brought the fire every single day, one of the greatest defenders of all time.

Glad he retired. Their was a rumor that Boston was interested in him. That would have made me sick if he were a celtic.
