STUCK WITH THE BILL: As tragic as Alonzo Mourningâ€™s medically forced retirement is, it may only be matched in how tragically bad the decision making process broke down for the New Jersey Nets who are now on the hook for $50 million in salaries for centers that will never play for the franchise again. Nets GM Rod Thorn did confirm for media that the Nets were not able to get an insurance policy on Mourningâ€™s deal, meaning the franchise is on the hook for all $22 million owed him. One caveat on this decision is it came directly from ownership, and not the GM, meaning the owners knowingly signed Zo to the deal, and will now have to foot the bill for his entire contract. The earliest Zoâ€™s contract could come off the cap would be 2005.
