He actually lit up the summer league for the Clips. I thought for sure they were going to pick him up as a backup to Butler and Hill but ultimately they decided to go with Barnes.

I was watching some highlights of him with the Bobcats. He actually wasn't that bad. What happened?

Which I guess makes sense since they weren't bringing back Kenyon and needed an a**hole. But Barnes is really a pretty average to below average player when it's all said and done. All work and really not very much talent.

But for that team I think Morrison would have fit better honestly.

Luke Walton crossed him up causing a bad knee injury. Yeah, it sounds funny but really isn't. I'm glad that he is getting another chance. He did and does not cause problems on every team he played on. Morrison is eccentric but not a wacko like some players in The League.

That's a pretty common misconception actually. He was god awful as a Bobcat with cringe worthy efficiency.

His full year with the Bobcats before his injury he posted:
Minutes per game- 29
Points- 11.8(on 12.1 attempts per game)
Rebounds- 2.9
Assists- 2.1
Turnovers- 1.7
FG%- .376%
Free throw %- .710%
3 point %- .337%
TS%- .450%(League average is usually around .530%)
PER- 7.9(keep in mind the league average is 15)

Just absolutely mind blowingly bad numbers. He took more shots than points, horrific PER and TS%, historically bad raw FG%, mediocre 3 point and free throw percentages.

In that last preseason game against us, he looked like the Adam Morrison from Gonzaga. It's probably just mental for him. He can't handle the pressure at the NBA level.

All of the things he's capable of doing should translate to the NBA game, it's simply a matter of whether or not he has the guts to go out there and get it done. It seems to be a mental thing with Ammo.

He's been invited to the Blazers' training camp as a non-guaranteed contract. I hope he makes it.

He still looks like Randall "Pink" Floyd from the movie "Dazed And Confused"... :man10: He can play against second and third level Summer League talent. It is obviously a different level in the N.B.A. however.

Adam Morrison, poor defender, creative scorer, the skills are there but is weak mentally againsts NBA tier players and does not know how to adjust his shot against NBA tier players that are more athletic.

He seems to do better and play more confident when the offense is catered to him and he gets to do whatever the heck he wants. Otherwise, as a role player, he just struggles immensely. Unfortunately, no NBA team is gonna let him have the reigns on offense--too risky and almost certainly a death wish, barring some Jeremy Lin miracle.

Apparently he was cut today. So if what he said holds true, he's done as an NBA player.

He had a decent game against us, but he really didn't get enough minutes to really showcase his offensive skills. Too bad.

Alex Kennedy ‏@AlexKennedyNBA 13m
Adam Morrison has joined Gonzaga's coaching staff. Who would've thought that his playing career would be over at 28? http://tinyurl.com/nu95qkv

Alex Kennedy ‏@AlexKennedyNBA 6m
If Adam Morrison's NBA career is over, he played just 163 games and recorded just 28 starts. That's hard to do as a third overall pick

Alex Kennedy ‏@AlexKennedyNBA 4m
Adam Morrison has two championship rings to show for his three-year NBA career. Not bad for a guy who only played in two postseason games.

sucks that his career was a complete disappointment

i wish he could've come into his own as a laker but he was just not suited for the NBA it seemed like. but hey, at least he's got 2 rings. not many people can say that
:man9:

congrats on the new gig though

Has to be tough to be so young, wealthy, retired, and feel like a semi failure at the same time.

He'll come around in time. He's young enough to not quite understand how fortunate he is, but he'll figure it out.

As Dwight Howard would say he's a winner in life.

Having been close to the Zags when he was there and actually meeting him and his father a couple times I can tell you that his diabetic condition is the primary driver in his life. His prognosis longterm isn't really all that good and it was a primary contributor to his career being shortened as well as he entry into the draft early. The knee injury process took twice as long as with a healthy person and the full recovery % was much less. IMO that limited what he could do and he never really regained his shot after it.

Would he have been Larry 2.0.... no way. Would he have been a decent player.... I think so.

I doubt it to be honest he feels like a failure.

Made some millions, was a college allstar (think he is in gonzaga's hall of fame) played in the NBA collected two nba rings to put on his mantel and now a coach. That's not a bad at all. That's a better career then alot of people get in the nba.
