Mourning Says He'll Play One More Year

Alonzo Mourning has announced that he'll be back for one final season.

Thank god. Zo brings this team to another level when he's playing well. His defensive intensity and leadership would have been irreplaceable.

Even with him coming back, we won't get the most out of him unless Shaq can stay healthy. You could see that he was worn down by the end of last season after having to start for half the year.

With Zo coming back, I think Pat Riley is a lock to return as well. Those two are attached at the hip and I can't imagine a scenario where Pat would step aside while Zo is battling to keep this team in the hunt for a title.
