'ZO TAKES HIS SHOTS AT COMMISSIONER STERN
Published October 8, 1996
The Heat's Alonzo Mourning blames NBA Commissioner David Stern for the team's loss of Juwan Howard during the off-season, according to Amy Shipley of the MIAMI HERALD. Speaking Saturday, Mourning said, "David Stern runs this league. ... This whole thing was a matter of him flexing his muscle the whole time, letting [Heat President Pat Riley] and [Heat Owner Micky Arison] know who was the boss." Mourning went on to say the league "animosity has built up over the past couple of years against Pat Riley and Micky Arison." Mourning: "Arison is the new guy on the block, a young owner with lots of money, and Riley has won everywhere he goes. When he left the Knicks organization, the people in New York were kind of [ticked] off" (MIAMI HERALD, 10/6).
