One on One With NBA Hall of Famer Alonzo Mourning

Alonzo Mourning had a hell of a professional basketball career.

Mourning dominated at every single level. At Indian River High School in Virginia, he averaged 25 points, 15 rebounds and 12 blocks during his senior year. At Georgetown, he averaged 21.3 points, 10.7 rebounds and five blocks in his final year. The Charlotte Hornets liked what they saw, and selected him with the No. 2 overall pick in the 1992 NBA Draft (one pick after Shaquille O’Neal).

Expectations and pressure were high when he entered the NBA, but he certainly lived up to the hype. As a rookie, he took the league by storm, averaging 21 points, 10.3 rebounds and 3.5 blocks. Then, during his prime, Mourning was virtually unstoppable – at one point averaging 23.2 points and, for several years, blocking nearly four shots per game.

When Mourning’s 15-year NBA career came to end, his averages were an impressive 17.1 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2.8 blocks on 52.7 percent shooting from the field. He would become a seven-time All-Star, All-NBA First Team selection, two-time Defensive Player of the Year, world champion, gold medalist and Hall of Famer. He solidified himself as one of the most dominant and intimidating interior forces in league history, blocking 2,356 shots during his career (the 11th-most rejections of all-time).

Since retiring after the 2007-08 season, Mourning has transitioned into a front office role with the Miami HEAT, working as the Vice President of Player Programs and Development for the franchise.

He has also done a lot of charity work to benefit his community, founding Alonzo Mourning Charities, Inc. to help at-risk children, Zo’s Fund for Life to raise money and awareness for focal glomerulosclerosis (the kidney condition he battled) and Athletes For Hope to encourage more professional athletes to get involved in doing charity work. His latest project is the Dove Men+ Care’s “Real Strength Moments” campaign, which attempts to redefine strength as being caring and nurturing among other things.

Basketball Insiders recently chatted one on one with Mourning to discuss his career, the current big men in the NBA, his thoughts on the Final Four, his pick for Most Valuable Player and much more.

Alex Kennedy: How are today’s big men in the NBA different from the big men when you played?

Alonzo Mourning: In today’s generation, you’ve got more multi-skilled centers. The back-to-the-basket centers, they’re like dinosaurs. There aren’t many of them left – only like two or three of them. Now, they’re face-up, jump-shooting big men and there’s been a tremendous evolution at the position because the game isn’t taught inside-out anymore. It’s taught that it’s more a perimeter-oriented game.

Kennedy: You were a monster as a rookie, but we often hear that the development of a big man in the NBA takes longer than the development of other positions. Why is that? Does it have to do with the big man coaching at the high school or college level?

Mourning: That’s it. You got it. That’s it. It’s the coaching at the high school and college level. I had excellent coaching, I really did. And when you have that kind of influence and any sense of a basketball IQ, you adapt. You adapt immediately. Those things make all of the difference in the world. I was very fortunate to have that [big man coaching and basketball IQ]. I also had the work ethic. You know that I was an undersized center, but I played like I was 7’0.

Kennedy: How dominant would you be today if we put prime Zo on an NBA team and made you the focal point?

Mourning: Oh my God. It’d be unreal. Unreal. Because first of all, with the way that the game is being called, it’s not as physical of a game anymore. I would have shot at least five to seven more free throws per game because I used to see a lot of contact. So I would say that I would average anywhere from 22 to 25 [points] per game.

Kennedy: This may be a strange question, but what was it like stepping onto the court every night and feeling virtually unstoppable? You were often the best player on the floor and many nights you did whatever you wanted. What’s that feeling like?

Mourning: It just gave me a certain confidence. Every time, I stepped on the court, I wasn’t to be denied. It just came down to [me] basically forcing my will on my opponent. That’s pretty much what it came down to. I basically just forced my will on my opponent and not too many of my opponents could deal with it or get in my way.

Kennedy: Who were the players who gave you the most trouble during your playing career, in terms of guarding you or getting in your head?

Mourning: People who gave me trouble? Oh wow. Hmm, I think it’d have to be Hakeem Olajuwon. He gave everybody trouble.

Kennedy: What’s it like when that feeling of dominance starts to slip away due to aging, injuries and other circumstances? I know a lot of athletes really struggle with that. Kobe Bryant is a recent example. What’s that like?

Mourning: Father Time is undefeated, man, so you just deal with it and move on. You just try to make the proper adjustments that you need to make. You can see that with Kobe Bryant right now. You see injuries are just becoming a part of [him]. Your body just starts to break down. A lot of people fail to realize that we’re not machines. We may look like it sometimes, but we’re human beings too. Over time, things just start breaking down. To us too! It’s part of the norm. As much as we’re mentally strong and we feel like we can still perform, eventually everything just gives out on you. You aren’t as durable as you were when you were 20 or 22 years old. You just aren’t as durable when you get to be 37 or 38.

Kennedy: I know this Dove Men+ Care’s “Real Strength Moments” campaign focuses partially on resilience. You epitomize that, with the health issues you overcame. What was it like going through that at the time, and did you fear for your life?

Mourning: I didn’t fear for my life, but I did have a lot of doubt, wondering if my life would be shortened by this thing. I just continued to educate myself on the situation, surround myself with the right people, change my diet, make the right adjustments, continue to exercise and do all of the things I could to overcome it rather than succumb to it. Outside of all of that, I was fortunate to receive a life-saving transplant from one of my relatives, Jason Cooper.

Kennedy: What did it mean for you to put the cherry on top of your illustrious career by winning a championship with Miami in the 2006 NBA Finals after you had the kidney transplant?

Mourning: It was probably one of the most fulfilling moments of my career to be able to do that. Because I just feel like that’s the pinnacle of everybody’s career, to be able to win a world championship, whether that’s at baseball, football, basketball, any sport. So when I had the opportunity to do it, I just seized it. I seized the moment. I had to make some sacrifices in order to get there, but it happened for me.

Kennedy: Of all the centers in the NBA today, who are some of the guys who impress you the most?

Mourning: Are there any centers that stand out to me right now? The only one I can think of is Anthony Davis. He plays like I used to play when I was a rookie – blocks shots, rebounds, gets assists, scores points – he fills up the stat sheet. He’s just all over the place.

Kennedy: Who would be your NBA Most Valuable Player for this season?

Mourning: My MVP award right now would go to Anthony Davis. That’s who I’d vote for. I think he is [overlooked to a certain extent], and I think [his] market has kind of affected him. But yeah, Anthony Davis would definitely get my vote for MVP.

Kennedy: Your front office in Miami has made some great moves this year, and I want to ask you about Hassan Whiteside. You’ve been mentoring him. What are your thoughts on his growth and how have you been trying to help him?

Mourning: I’m just trying to help him reach his [full] potential, what it takes to get there as far as developing his game and developing his work ethic and what have you. He’s been given the God-given abilities and now it’s time for him to develop the work ethic this year.

Kennedy: You’ve been working in Miami’s front office. Do you aspire to lead your own team as a general manager someday?

Mourning: I’m a front office executive now, one of the vice presidents of the team, but I don’t know yet [about wanting to become a GM]. That’s a pretty good question for me. I really don’t yet, I can’t really give you a solid answer if that’s something that I want to do. Right now, I’m happy with where I’m at and how I’m contributing to the team.

Kennedy: How much have you learned from Pat Riley in Miami?

Mourning: He’s the perfect mentor when it comes to that. I’ve learned so much from him so far and he’s the perfect mentor for me.

Kennedy: Shifting gears to college basketball, which team do you have winning the NCAA Tournament this year? Can any team compete with Kentucky?

Mourning: I don’t know [if any team can beat Kentucky], but you have to think that Wisconsin has a very well-balanced team. It’s a toss-up. You really don’t know. It’s going to be fun to watch. I’m telling you, I don’t think one team is just going to overwhelm the other. I mean, look at the Notre Dame vs. Kentucky game. You just never know. Now, if Kentucky had blown Notre Dame out, I’d probably say different. But now, you just don’t know. I think Wisconsin is a better team than Notre Dame, I really do. … I’m just very pleased to see this great level of competition and I think it’s going to be a great Final Four.

Kennedy: What made you decide to do this Dove Men+ Care’s “Real Strength Moments” campaign?

Mourning: First of all, I use the product Dove Men+Care and outside of that, part of the campaign is just helping people understand what strength is. I’ve been looked at as being the definition of strength with my physical stature. But true strength is defined by nurturing, caring, being a father to your children and being a leader in your community. We were taught when we were younger that strength is just about sucking it up and being aggressive and being strong, but times have changed. The mentality of strength has changed tremendously.

NBA Daily: Raptors’ Thomas Patiently Perseveres

It took a tight family, two years in Spain and a broken finger, but Matt Thomas’ chance to showcase his shooting on the biggest stage might be finally just around the corner.

Matt Thomas’ long-awaited break was disrupted by a more literal break. After the shooting guard spent two years impressing in the Liga ACB in Spain, Thomas’ first season with the Toronto Raptors was supposed to be his chance to prove himself NBA-ready.

And as the Raptors suffered injury after injury in November, that chance looked like it could grow into a full-blown role, if only on a temporary basis.

“He’s shown he can play at this level, where we can come out there and run stuff for him and he can do work,” Toronto head coach Nick Nurse said. “He’s a really good team defender; he’s much better defensively than maybe people give him credit for.”

Instead, Thomas joined the walking wounded with a broken finger, the first injury to force him to miss extended time in his professional career.

“Anytime you’re injured, it’s hard,” Thomas said. “As a competitor, I want to be on the court, especially we had so many injuries. There was a big opportunity on the table for a first-year guy like myself.”

Thomas had hit 14-of-26 threes at that point, 53.8 percent, already arguably the best shooter on the Raptors’ roster, albeit in limited minutes. The Iowa State product was making the most of his break until his break.

He had waited for it since finishing his four-year career in Ames and Thomas seemed on the verge of reaching the NBA right away in 2017. He spent that Summer League with the Los Angeles Lakers, knowing the Raptors were keeping a close eye. In time, though, Valencia beckoned, a tough decision for someone exceptionally close with his family. Up until that point, the closeness had been as literal as figurative, with Iowa State a four-hour drive from Thomas’ hometown of Onalaska, Wisconsin.

“I wanted to spread my wings and get out of my comfort zone a little bit,” Thomas said of his two years in Spain where he averaged 13.3 points and shot 47.2 percent from deep. “The distance is tough. The time change is the other thing. It’s a 7-to-8 hour time difference, so you really have to coordinate when you’re going to talk to people.”

That was frustrating for a brother intent on keeping up on his sister’s college career, now a senior at the University of Dubuque. Moreover, it was an even bigger change for a family that had been tight-knit since Thomas lost his father in fifth grade.

Thomas’s mother, brother and sister did manage to visit him in Spain, but watching games stateside is obviously much easier. At least, in theory. When the Midwestern winter dumped five inches of snow on the highways between the Target Center and his hometown about 2.5 hours away, that recent trek to see him became that much tougher.

Nonetheless, about four dozen Thomas supporters filled a section above the Raptors’ bench. They were most noticeable when Nurse subbed in the sharpshooter with just a minute left in the first half.

“It’s special because I have a really good support system,” Thomas said. “I’ve had that my entire life . . . It’s just really special to have so many people make the trip, especially given the weather conditions. I was talking to one of my cousins from Iowa; he was driving 30 on the highway. He got here in six hours, it would normally take maybe three.”

If anyone could understand that Midwestern stubbornness, it would be Nurse, himself from just four hours south of the Twin Cities. When asked why his fan club was not as vocal as Thomas’, Nurse joked his was stuck “in a snowdrift somewhere in Carroll County, Iowa.”

It might not have been a joke.

Nurse did not insert Thomas just to appease his loyal cheering section. The end of half situation called for a shooter — he had gone 7-of-18 in his four games after returning from the broken finger. Of players averaging at least two attempts from beyond the arc per game, Thomas leads Toronto with a 46.7 percentage.

“It’s too bad that he was one of the guys out when we had everybody out because he could have logged some serious minutes,” Nurse said. “Now he gets back and everybody’s back and he kind of gets filtered in.”

That close family, that time in Spain, that broken finger and now that filtering in have all been a part of Thomas getting a chance to prove himself in the NBA.

If he has to wait a bit longer before seeing serious minutes, so be it.

The Raptors did, after all, give him a three-year contract. He has time on his side.

Who The NBA’s Top Road Warriors?

Jordan Hicks takes a look at the teams boasting the top-five road records in the league and breaks down what makes them so good away from home.

Winning in the NBA is not easy by any means — but a victory on the road is almost more valuable than one at home. Maybe not as far as standings are concerned, but road wins are harder to come by in the league. Being able to get victories away from home can shoot your team up the standings faster than anything else.

Each year there are new teams that impress. Whether it’s expected franchises such as those led by LeBron James or Kawhi Leonard — superstars with historically great track records, rosters that must do so to meet lofty expectations. But there are always surprise newcomers such as the Miami HEAT or the Dallas Mavericks, too. Either way, a large chunk of those aforementioned team’s success relies heavily upon their ability to get wins on the road.

Who are the best road warriors this year? What teams are posting the highest records away from their home cities at the halfway point? Basketball Insiders takes a look at the top five teams in that realm, plus points to certain reasons they may be finding success.

No. 1: Los Angeles Lakers (19-4)

This first one should come as no surprise. For one, they are led by LeBron James. Secondly, they are co-led by Anthony Davis. Do you even need a third reason?

Listen, everyone thought the Lakers would be good. But did anyone think they’d be this dominant and click this fast? Honestly, high-five if so. But it’s not just those two that are doing all the work. Players like Kentavious Caldwell-Pope are thriving, Dwight Howard is having a mini-resurgence, Kyle Kuzma is playing for his roster spot and Rajon Rondo is still dishing dimes at a high rate – though not as high as King James.

LeBron is averaging 26 points, 10.9 assists and 8.4 rebounds on the road, almost a triple-double. Davis is just behind scoring-wise at 25.9 points and almost a double-double with 9.2 rebounds. Kuzma is shooting 47.2 percent from the field and scoring just over 15 a game and, most surprisingly, leading the team in plus-minus at a plus-7.1.

With multiple road-wins against the Mavericks — and one each over the Miami HEAT, the Utah Jazz, and the Denver Nuggets — what’s not to appreciate? The Lakers appear to be the clear front runner in the Western Conference and their impressive road record is a large reason why.

No. 2: Milwaukee Bucks (18-4)

On top of the road-win totem with the Lakers sits the Milwaukee Bucks. They’ve been every bit as dominating as the Lakers, which is helped, in part, to the much-weaker bottom of the Eastern Conference. But this by no means is a knock on their talent level. Just like the Lakers are the current kings of the West, the Bucks are dominating the East.

Giannis Antetokounmpo appears ready to secure his second consecutive MVP award. He’s even more dominant than he was last year and he’s finally shooting the three at a respectable clip.

While Antetokounmpo’s numbers seem to be pretty steady overall when compared to his road numbers, Eric Bledsoe and Khris Middleton both see a bump in production when playing away from their home arena. Although the Bucks have an insanely-impressive point differential of plus-13.8 at home, it dips to just plus-11.4 when they play on the road. This is a true testament to their consistency as they travel.

The Bucks appear to lack the road-win resume that the Lakers bolster, but with solid wins against the Los Angeles Clippers and Houston Rockets, they can clearly take care of business against evenly-matched opponents.

No. 3: Dallas Mavericks (14-5)

By far and large the biggest surprise this NBA season has been the Mavericks. A few smart people probably had them penciled in as a surprise eighth-seed, but it’s almost a guarantee no one had them in as a playoff lock as early as December.

The reason they’re playing so well? Luka Doncic. He’s only half an assist away from averaging a triple-double on the road and he’s scoring more to boot. In fact, the Mavericks are averaging just 115.1 points at home compared to a whopping 118.6 on the road.

What’s even crazier is the fact that Dallas’ offensive rating while on the road not only leads the NBA — it’s over four full points greater than the Lakers at No. 2. The gap between them and second place is as big as the space between Los Angeles and the eleventh-ranked team.

The Mavericks boast quite the slate of road wins including the Nuggets, Lakers, Bucks, Rockets and Philadelphia 76ers. Yes, you read all those names right. One thing is for certain, the Mavericks will be a nightmare for whoever has to play them in the playoffs – regardless of seeding.

No. 4: Toronto Raptors (14-7)

You would think that after Kawhi Leonard’s departure that the Raptors would have slightly folded, but they’ve almost picked up right where they left off. Sure, Leonard’s absence was going to leave some sort of void, but it’s amazing just how well Toronto has fared this season.

They boast the second-best road defense with a rating of 102.7, just behind the Bucks. They also have the fourth-best net rating away from home.

The three-headed monster of Pascal Siakam, Fred VanVleet and Kyle Lowry has been as effective on the road as it has been at home. Thanks to the ever-improving play of Siakam, Toronto should comfortably find themselves with home-court advantage come playoff time. They might not have what it takes to repeat as champions, but they’re absolutely going to make life tough for whomever they end up facing.

Solid road wins against the Boston Celtics and Lakers certainly look impressive on the resume, but they’ll need to continue to improve as a unit if they want to make any noise in the playoffs.

No. 5: Denver Nuggets (13-7)

The Nuggets are having an interesting season. Gary Harris hasn’t been playing well at all, Jamal Murray hasn’t been turning heads either, but Nikola Jokic is still feasting on any opposing center thrown his way.

The biggest surprise so far? The stellar play of second-year rookie Michael Porter Jr. He’s only averaging about 15 minutes per game but, on the road, he’s scoring 8.3 points per game on 56 percent from the field and 51.6 percent from three. His NBA sample sizes aren’t quite big enough yet, but it’s becoming more and more clear just how good he’ll become.

Despite no one else on the roster improving much from last season, the Nuggets still find themselves in the upper-echelon of the Western Conference — and their stellar road play is a major reason. With solid road-wins against the Lakers, Mavericks and Indiana Pacers, the Nuggets are primed to finish the second half of the season strong. If Porter Jr. continues to improve and see expanded minutes, Denver could turn into a real threat out west.

All the teams on this list have been pretty impressive up to this point in the season, but there is still a long way to go. Will the Bucks or Lakers get dethroned as the road warriors of their respective conferences? Only time will tell.

But if one thing is certain in the NBA, road wins are no “gimmes,” regardless of opponent. The above teams all deserve their rightful spot on this midseason list. How many will remain come April?

The Next Frontier in Basketball: Results-Based Mindfulness

Jake Rauchbach outlines how firing and rewiring the brain’s neuro-networks via Brain-Based Training – Player Development is the next frontier in basketball.

Jake Rauchbach

The mind cannot tell the difference between what’s being experienced in real life and what is deliberately being visualized within the constructs of the mind. High-Performers have intuitively known this.

Science is now showing this. The brain has the ability to affect physiology and improve motor skill sets without lifting a finger.

For example, through visualizing desired outcomes, a person can rewire new neuro-networks (or pathways) in the brain, requisite for acquiring optimal motor function skills. This is based upon contemporary brain-based research.

The implications of these developments on the player development and performance space could be massive. Before we dive further into how, let’s first cover some foundational brain mechanics.

The Brain’s Neuro-Networks

According to some of the latest Epigenetic and neuroscience work by Dr. Joe Dispenza, the brain is comprised of a multitude of neuro-networks.

Neuro-networks are informational highways that transfer both information and commands. These networks are wired and rewired based upon our most consistent habits and behaviors.

According to Dispenza, people can upshift physiology, performance and career success through applying High-Performance Mindfulness techniques that rewire the brain’s neuro-networks.

Employing consistent visualization helps to fire and/or rewire these neuro-networks to more efficiently execute the specific task at hand. Additionally, employing leading-edge High-Performance methods takes this one step further by supercharging the process.

Current Approaches

The current player development landscape generally leaves out likely the most important element of unlocking human potential and high-performance, the impact that systematically firing and rewiring neuro-networks in the brain has on statistical improvement.

This approach is much like honing muscle memory in a very specific, supercharged way, weeding out unproductive subconscious programs while installing productive programs, having the effect of boosting physiology, focus and, of course, performance.

Probably the most leading-edge and powerful way to do this is through the implementation of Brain-Based – Player Development methods. These methods can be applied for performance optimization and in the injury recovery process. More on performance in a minute, but first, let’s look at the recovery piece.

High-Performance Mindfulness for Injury Recovery

According to Dr. Milo Sewards, Head Orthopedic Surgeon of Temple University Athletics, one of the biggest areas that is left unaddressed during the rehabilitation process is the unhealed psychosomatic element. This is especially true after players are cleared to physically play.

“Players have to be able to clear that final mental hurdle that prevents them from being able to get back to not just participating but performing,” Sewards says.

According to Dr. Sewards, tools like this are a powerful way to address these issues.

“I have seen some incredible things happen, some efficacy with these techniques, and getting some guys back from injuries with these techniques back to a very high level of performance,” he says. “I would love to see all of this take off and be widely accepted.”

Empirical Evidence

High-Performance tools addressing the mental hurdles that Dr. Sewards mentions above have been shown to quickly and effectively eliminate leftover psychosomatic elements from past injuries, but that is not all.

Take, for example, a study published in the Journal of Neurophysiology in 1992, where three test groups were used. Group No. 1 employed five, one-hour physical workout sessions per week for four weeks to improve arm strength. The second group just mentally rehearsed the same arm exercise that Group 1 did, without physically lifting a finger. Control groups did not exercise their arm or mind.

As you would expect, at the end of four weeks, Group 1 exhibited a 30% increase in muscle strength. But get this, the group that purely mentally rehearsed the exercise without any physical training, displayed a 22% increase in muscle strength!

Fascinating stuff, right? Another study, performed by Harvard researchers, took a group and divided it in half. One group practiced a five-finger piano exercise, two hours a day for five days. The other group’s members mentally rehearsed the exercise as if they were sitting at the piano without physically moving their fingers in any way.

Brain scans of both groups after the exercise revealed that they created a significant amount of neural activity. The group’s brain scan that only visualized the outcome was very similar to the group that had physically rehearsed.

There is big-time relevance here in regards to helping players improve.

Science continues to show that there are tangible improvements and progression taking place through Rep’ing the mind in a very specific way.

Optimizing Load Management

Efficient workflows are valued over old paradigm, sheer workload routines like never before. This is part of the reason why Load Management has become a priority. Career longevity and injury prevention have moved to the center.

Brain Psychology Player Development, that allows players the chance to improve on-court performance and physiology without increasing repetition of physical wear and tear, is an extremely valuable organizational asset.

Methods that optimize mental focus, emotional dissonance and statistical performance, without increasing the physical load on the body, are at a premium. For these reasons, combined with the scientific efficacy mentioned above, there could be a perfect storm brewing for massive market disruption.

The work-harder-for-longer model of player development is not resonating with the players as it once did. Combine this with leading-edge techniques shared within coming online, and the standard practices of improving basketball performance could change quickly. Players such as Aaron Gordon, LeBron James, Kevin Love and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson are infusing their routines with mind-based methods.

Considering that very few teams currently employ these methods in a systematic or customized fashion, there exists a HUGE opportunity for those forward-thinking organizations.

Optimizing On-Court Statistical Performance

High-Performance – Player Development Coaches have been showing that these methods influence on-court statistics upwards.

Case studies showing 10%, 20%, 30% and sometimes 40% improvement in the same season, have become routine and commonplace for the professional, national team and college players who trust and employ these processes.

You may want to read The Next Step in Player Development and How to Improve Shooting Percentages Installments. I discuss this at more length there.

Both players highlighted below experienced improvement in no less than five statistical areas in the course of the same season after implementation of mind-based methods. Here are examples of players describing how this work positively affected their game:

FIBA Cup, Daequan Cook: https://vimeo.com/361200434

FIBA Cup Captain, Tal Dunne: https://vimeo.com/322145121

In Closing

For players and teams looking to gain a distinct edge in the development & performance space, the most efficient way to do this is through employing systematic processes that fire and rewire subconscious neuro-networks and produce high-performance.

Mind-based methods have been shown time and time again to facilitate this.

Based on growing empirical evidence, results and social proof, the next frontier in basketball could be mind-body methods that unlock performance.
