 MIAMI (AP) -Alonzo Mourning is coming back, one more time.
Ending nearly three months of suspense about his future, the Miami Heat center said Sunday night at his annual Zo's Summer Groove charity game that he'll play again next season - a choice he kept secret to the end, insisting he was still deciding just hours before the actual announcement.
``I will be coming back,'' Mourning said.
This was the third straight summer Mourning considered retirement before choosing to keep playing. Next season will be his 15th in the NBA, not including a full year he missed with kidney problems that led to him getting a transplant in 2003.
``It will definitely be my last year,'' Mourning said.
