The Brett Favre of Basketball

Some people just dont know when to quit

Some people just don't know when to quit

I wish someone could tell me what’s going through Alonzo Mourning’s head. Why is he still thinking about coming back to the NBA? He’s pushing 40, just came off of a crazy injury, and can’t play for nothing. If I was him, I would’ve been long gone after the way his last game ended. Not only because I was an old man trying to play basketball who just destroyed my knee, but because he walked off like a G. If he retired right then and there, that would have been one of the most memorable retirements. Besides, I doubt he’ll come out and do anything worth doing. Obviously the G2 ain’t workin Zo, so it’s time to bounce. He said himself, “Really. The years of basketball has been good to me and my family and unfortunately, all good things must come to an end.” Well, that end has come. Heres an idea. Why don’t you just sit on the sideline with Spoelstra and coach. I’m sure the Heat would love to have you do something. Beasley needs some polishing so you’ve got a job lined up already. I mean, if you’re way past your prime, why not help those who are in theirs? When you’re coaching, you can stay for as long as you like. Maybe not with the same team, but you’re still coaching, right? Just ask Joe Paterno, he knows all about that.
