MIAMI (AP) _ The suspense continues over Alonzo Mourning's
playing status for next season.
The seven-time All-Star center said he'll make it known (QUOTE):
``very soon'' whether he'll return to the Miami Heat or retire.
This is a decision he's been contemplating for the two-and-a-half
months since the team was eliminated in the first round of this
year's N-B-A playoffs.
Mourning said Saturday night that he has not yet spoken to the people
he needs to speak to.
He made the comment at the benefit dinner for his annual Zo's
Summer Groove charity fundraising weekend.
He says (quote): ``I've got a good feeling about the Miami Heat
and what direction they're trying to go in.''
