EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New Jersey Net's center Alonzo Mourning is leaving basketball again because the kidney disease he's had for three years is worsening and he needs a transplant.

The announcement Monday came just a few months after Mourning, 33, signed a four-year contract with the Nets believed to be worth $22 million. The seven-time All-Star sat out all of last season and large portions of two of the last three years because of the life-threatening kidney ailment, focal glomerulosclerosis.

Man, I hadn't heard that. I remember when he played for the Charlotte Hornets, I even saw him play once. That is sad. I hope that they are able to find a match for him.

This is so sad, reminds me of when Magic retired due to HIV. He will be missed on the court indeed.
