The following segment aired on “The Balancing Act” on Lifetime Television. Joining the show was Alonzo Mourning to discuss his philanthropic efforts in Alonzo Mourning Charities.
The Balancing Act: Well, our next guest is a former professional basketball player who played most of his fifteen-year NBA career for your, my, everybody’s Miami Heat. His tenacity on defense twice earned him the NBA defensive player of the year award and placed him on the NBA All-defensive team. He made a comeback after undergoing a kidney transplant and later won his first NBA championship with the Heat. On March 30, 2009, he became the first Miami Heat player to have his number retired. This morning, “The Balancing Act” is honored to welcome Mr. Alonzo Mourning, better known as “Zo” to his fans. Good to see you, Zo.
