His number was 33, get it.

In 2000, former Heat superstar Alonzo Mourning started 33 Thanksgivings, delivering turkey dinners to underprivileged families throughout Miami. Since then, the annual charity event has expanded to 533 families, and Mourning still personally delivers 33 of them. Each meal includes turkey, green-bean casserole, mashed potatoes and gravy, bread rolls, stuffing, cranberry-orange relish, a gallon of iced tea, and pumpkin pie. It sounds better than what my mother usually puts out (sorry, Mom, but last year's instant potatoes?). Anyone looking to contribute or volunteer can e-mail Alonzo Mourning Charities.
