Game 6 of the NBA Finals sealed what Zo really is...... To me that performance will live on for ever. Zo.... your still a beast, the biggest heart I have ever seen in Pro Sports, and if that was your last game..... you had a heck, I MEAN a heck of a career, you dont have a reason to hang your head just like Magic told you!!! So Thank you for the awesome job, awesome determination, will, heart you bought every night to the court. GAME 6 WILL LIVE FOREVER!

shaq was pissed off at the refs because now he has to work overtime with zo out for the rest of the season....damn their goes his meal ticket, now you will see riley and shaq up on each other again but this time it could be much worse.....zo was the real glue to this team not wade. zo is a true champion for what he has endured not only in his nba life but in the real world like most of us...he has carried this team through thick and thin, and tho i am not heat fan who cannot be marvelled by his character. his last nba game was played with magic administering the eulogy....good luck zo!

Alonzo Mourning should have been the first number retired in the history of the Heat.

There is no way Michael Jordan's number should be hanging from the rafters of the AAA.

As a Knick Fan, I hated and loved Zo.
He always and I mean ALWAYS gave 200% every game.
He made Ewing look mortal and at the height of the Heat - Knick rivalry Zo was the HEART and SOUL of the Miami Heat. Alonzo showed the true depth of his heart after the kidney problems by making a Herculean effort to come back to the NBA and I have been his fan ever since.
What a warrior.
Seeing him win the championship and the way he played in that 6th game.
I want to say, please come back if you can Zo. Play the game you love as long as you can.
One of the truly great ballers in the history of the NBA.
Thanks for the memories Zo.
