Zo Gets A Ring!

Alonzo
All the talk will about Dwyane Wade and it should be. NBA Finals MVP at age 24. The first of that amazing draft of 2003 to get a ring. He’s the player who made the shots in crunch time and the Heat could not have won it without him.

But the guy I am pumped about is Alonzo Mourning, the best defensive player in the league for so many years, who refused to let kidney disease stop his quest for a ring. And unlike his friend Patrick Ewing (my all-time favorite NBA player), Zo got his ring.

And as this piece by John Hollinger explains, Miami may not have won last night without some huge plays by Zo that got them back in the game and kept them there.

Way to go Zo and the entire Miami team. I knew they could do it.
