HERE’S TO ZO
All On The Field has a nice post about Alonzo Mourning. He got me thinking about Zo and I left a comment there. Here it is.
I can tell you this: there is no other player in any sport that I have done a 180 on like Mourning.
We used to laugh at him during the years of Bulls dominance. As the Bulls would mess with his head, it was merely a matter of time before he would flip out or do something detriemental to the team. Of course the Bulls did that to most everyone, but Zo was especially susceptible.
He was petulant and always seemed as if he would forever teeter on the brink of greatness.
But as years past I realized how much he had changed and what a warrior he was. He became a guy to look up to, much different than the young Zo. I hope he makes the Hall.
And if he decided to come back next year, how about the Bulls?
