Unless, of course, it isn't.
Mourning, whose season ended when he suffered severe knee and leg injuries in a game last December, said Monday that if his body gets healthy, he'd like to come back and play one more season before finally calling it a career.
``I want to come back and play another year,'' Mourning said, while appearing at Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor's charity golf event. ``I just want to get my body right to do it. I need to get my body where my mind is.''
Mourning has said several times previously that a return wasn't out of the question - but Monday's comments may have been his strongest yet.
It's not entirely up to Mourning; his contract with the Heat ends June 30, and he almost certainly wouldn't want to play for any other team.
``I still, in my mind, feel I can contribute,'' Mourning said.
The 38-year-old Mourning averaged 6.0 points and 3.7 rebounds in 25 games this season for the Heat.
