Friday Fire 3: Should Alonzo Mourning and Warren Sapp Be Inducted Into Their Respective Hall of Fames?
One more question raised by CinQue:
Warren Sapp called it a career after 12 seasons. He was a Defensive Player of the Year in 1999, a member of the 90’s All Decade Team and played in 7 Pro Bowls. Rushing the passer, he was tenacious and was in your ear hole telling you about it. Here he’s giving it to former Green Bay head coach Mike Sherman as a member of the Tampa Bay Bucs in 2002. Look at Sherman’s face.
Sherman wishing he didn’t say a word
After a stellar 16 year career Zo recently went down with a career threatening knee injury. He played in 7 All Star games, was a two time Defensive Player of the year, is an Olympic gold medalist and also the Miami Heat all time leading scorer. In his prime he was one of the fiercest competitors in sports. He and Patrick Ewing had some battles didn’t they? Crazy they both went to GTown.
Always a winner
Both of these outstanding athletes won a championship and are the classic representation of their respective universities–Miami and Georgetown.
Mentally and physically they also were two of the strongest their sports have every seen.
Do they both deserve induction to the Hall of Fame? If not, who has the stronger case?
