Alonzo Mourning may be retired from the NBA, but he’s still a part of the Miami Heat’s front office, so he shared in the team’s most recent championship. As a mentor and informal advisor to some of the Heat’s young stars, including Dwyane Wade who he shared a championship with in 2006, Mourning enjoyed this season as much as he did when he played. But that makes sense, as the married husband and father is all about mentoring young people.

Through Alonzo Mourning Charities, he and wife Tracy have opened the Overtown Youth Center, which helps youth in the impoverished area with a wide array of services, and created Honey Shine, Tracy’s mentoring organization for young women. With a fundraiser in the works for OYC in July, we caught up with the big man to ask about how it feel to celebrate another championship and how giving back helps young people.
