Zo, you are missed, my man.
What a great guy! Miami and the NBA misses you! Good luck with Retirement!
I’m sure all the Nets fans will really enjoy this.
Out of all the stuff the Heat did for Zo yesterday..I think the coolest (and probably the most symbolic) is them renaming the team weight room to the Zo Zone.
Also: Who knew Zo was a Creed fan? Good lord.
“When you are with me……I’m free”
One of my favorite players in the L, ever, EVER. This made me happy.
Congrats on your big moment, Zo. That said, I reeeally don’t get the Creed part either. Was it’s overall crappiness supposed to make Zo angry instead of touchy-feely? Didn’t work. On a serious note though, loved watching the man play, even in his last games. A true effin’ warrior.
”Warriors do not live in the past,the past is dead.Life is now,and the future is waiting”.
“Fall down once, beat your f*ckin’ a**.”
EBoy did you Cry?
To battle through his illness was what really cemented his leagacy for me. Never loved him but respected the hell outta him
Naw ENDS…..I was more upset they fuc*ed around and lost to that paper champion of a team.
Nice we need to renew the rivalry
What is it 10 of the Last 12. Kings of Florida. We’ll do this again next year, it was was fun…
No Larry Johnson Reference? Wow they really need to let the (slap box) fight go. Even Mugsy got a shot out. Tim Hardaway + Cold as ice
= cooler than being cool
congratulations to Zo. I’ll never forget his press conference after winning that ring. That’s a warrior if I ever saw one!
Zo, thanks for the memories
I’m happy Zo has that ring on his finger. He really deserves it, for everything he did for the game. Thanks for the memories.
eff zo..effin faker…still a good player..
Unknowingly, the day after he officially retired, I scored 33 points and had 33 rebounds as my team placed first in our home tournament. Pretty Sweet, huh? HOW ABOUT ALONZO MOURNING!!! !!!!
I shed a few tears, but I’m a girl. Nice presentation by all involved. Crappy game, though.
Alonzo. Top 10 centre of all time.
if creed was playing live in the AA arena during the ceremony, zo would’ve kicked their asses
man his championship ring is soo big!! dang!
Take care, Zo.
I loved Zo’s stay in Miami, he, Riley, Timmy & many others made Miami Heat basketball matter and he exits as a Champion. Great to see him get his due.
