Former NBA star and current Houston Rockets assistant coach Patrick Ewing offered Alonzo Mourning one of his kidneys before he received one from a family member.

Damn, Alonzo must be a guy that everyone loves/respects A LOT.

I'm surprised that so many people, including a guy like Patrick Ewing, willingly offered up their kidneys for the man. I guess since so many people did offer to help Zo, it is a tribute to how good of a man he is.
