What a blow! Very sad to see Zo's career end this way. I would love to see him in a prominent role w/in the organization. Love you, Zo! Thanks for lining up for battle every night, going all out & always handling yourself w/ class & dignity. You were a warrior & a credit to your profession. You will be missed. I hope to see #33 up in those rafters someday soon.

Dear Zo,

One of the greatest players in the history of this game...and certainly one of the best individual and a warrior that NBA has seen. Don't be too sad about it. Your career was rich and full...and overflowing. it was a blast to see you play...every moment of it. You would be welcomed if you wanted to extend your career..but it would be just as great to see you pursue your excellece in other areas of your life as well. Take care. Mourning! We salute you!!!

Much love and best of luck to Zo, if he decides to return to basketball or not. He's done so, so much for South Florida.

I meet Alonzo at the Mandalay Bay hotel in Las Vegas over the summer. He is truly a great guy and I loved watching his intensity on the floor. But just like every good story it has to come to an end. So I want to thank you Zo for you did for Miami.

Mourning is a warrior - it's a shame to see his carrer end like this. At least he got his ring.
Alonzo - you are The Man. Thank you for your time spent on this team and all you do for this community.

HEAT-NATION REPORT/ GOD BLESS ALONZO MOURNING: a roll model, a apex predater, a man among boys, the person that brought me a intrest in the game that has now turned into a love for the sport. i resenated with his competitive play and im a better person becouse he was a example of never quit resolve

Zo's knee doesn't hurt as much as the though of having Earl Barron as our backup center.

I was impressed by the way Magic Johnson still comes out to support Pat Riley and the Heat. He is a genuine person. He really showed concern for Zo. Magic and the Lakers in general always had a great relationship with the Heat. Riley still has his former Laker assistant coach, Randy Pfund at his side and Bob Macadoo was a great reserve on the Showtime Lakers. It's really a shame in my opinion that a lot of Heat fans have such animosity toward the Lakers because of Shaq. I think he will be a ship pasing in the night while Zo will always epitomize the Heat's legacy in the NBA. I fear that we have have seen the last of Alonzo Mourning in a Heat uniform. For that I am truly sad.
love ya man
