Alonzo Mourning Basketball Career

Alonzo Mourning, also known as “Zo”, was a highly talented center in the NBA known for his defensive abilities. He led his high school team to 51 wins, earning plenty of individual honours and accolades. He enrolled at Georgetown University to play under famous coach, John Thompson. He led the country in a number of blocks and blocked shots per game at the collegiate level, improving his offensive game to earn 2000 points and 1000 rebounds during his college career.

Mourning posted the highest scoring average by a rookie in Charlotte’s entire franchise history. He was picked second overall and immediately broke out as a star, becoming an integral part of their playoff run. After a missed attempt into the knockout stages, Mourning rallied his team together in 1995 to make the playoffs once again but was eliminated. The Hornets offered him an $11 million extension but Mourning chose to reject it and was subsequently traded to the Miami Heat.

Famed coach, Pat Riley found Mourning to be the perfect fit in his side and the pairing worked well for years, reaching the Eastern Conference finals. The former NBA big man suffered serious kidney issues in 2003 that almost forced him to retire. After being let go by the Heat, Mourning joined the New Jersey Nets and underwent kidney surgery, retiring for the first time. A transplant helped him get back on the court but his time with the Nets did not end well. He was traded to the Toronto Raptors, who decided to buy him out of his $9 million contract.

Mourning made a short return to Miami and played for three-season to register the highest points scored by a single player in the franchise’s history. In 2009, he returned to hold the position of Vice President of Player Programs and Development for the Heat.
