There was a time when Alonzo Mourning was more adversary than ally for the Heat. That was when he was starting his career with the Charlotte Hornets. Then the center forced his trade to the Heat amid Pat Riley arrival and he become public enemy No. 1 in Charlotte. Now retired and invested in his humanitarian work, Mourning will be honored during a “Buzz City Night” of his own on Feb. 2 when the Heat play in Charlotte. Hornets Sports & Entertainment President & COO Fred Whitfield said Mourning, now the Heat’s vice president of player programs, will be cited for his impact on the Charlotte community. Mourning was selected by the Hornets with the No. 2 pick in the 1992 NBA Draft. He spent three seasons in Charlotte and remains Charlotte’s all-time leader in blocks (684) and blocks per game (3.2). The Hornets will wear their black “Buzz City” Pride uniforms the night Mourning is honored.

President Barack Obama continued his Martha’s Vineyard vacation on Wednesday with a game of golf with two NBA stars: Miami Heat’s great Alonzo Mourning and free agent Ray Allen. The group played through the course at the Farm Neck Golf Club in Martha’s Vineyard. Completing the foursome was Cyrus Walker, cousin to Obama’s senior advisor Valerie Jarrett. Walker had previously joined Obama for a game of golf at Farm Neck on Friday with comedian Larry David and Robert Wolf, former head of UBS Investment Bank.
Soon, Mourning was trading words with Martin and Jefferson, eventually challenging Martin’s leadership and toughness. The power forward countered by mocking the center and saying “my kidney, my kidney” in reference to Mourning’s kidney transplant. “People don’t know it was a back-and-forth thing,” said Martin, who patched things up with Mourning. “I said something more hurtful than he said. Where I am from, if you say something about me, I try to say something worse. I apologized to him, that’s all that needed to be done. It was a heated argument, things got a little out of hand. I was dead wrong, 100 percent.”
