His contract expires at the end of the season with the Lakers, does anybody think he will be able to find a new team and atleast make his career as a bust somewhat respectable?

Morrison right now is in the Top 5 Busts in NBA History, hes not #1 because he atleast has 1 NBA Championship.

No, his career isn't over. Some bad team will give him minutes, I promise you that. He just has no place on a good team, except to be the guy that passes Gatorade to the players.

He will probably either go to a team that may send him to the D-League, or what I would do if I were him is go to Europe.

nah he has no spot on a bad team. not even the nets would give him a minute. they'd rather give those minutes to their own young instead of wasting it on a bust like morrison. off to europe morrison.

I remember when he was drafted some "experts" were saying he'd be the next Larry Bird...:laugh2:

Good call on that one.

He may get some time on a really bad team that needs a SF, but he'll never be anything more than a backup/role player in the NBA.

i think his abilities would fit very well in europe.

If he comes here and develops his game a bit and most important recovers confidence in himself he could maybe take the way bck in the league in 2 or 3 years like Charlie Bell, Anthony Parker, Marcus Haislip, John Starks etc.

Your right. He is 7 feet tall, likes to shoot 18-20footers, doesnt play defense, cant post up, and cant play in the paint. Sounds like a Euro to me.

hes not as much as a bust as people give him credit for...


he averaged 11 ppg as a rookie and was developing nicely, then was forced to sit his entire sophomore season because of surgery.

by the time he came back, larry brown was coaching the bobcats and didnt try to utilize him, where he was traded to the lakers...where its hard to get pt let alone develop.

there was a great article about him and reddick in the nba in sports illustrated a couple years ago. real sad story for morrison.

You cant be serious.

How can you even suggest he would be a good NBA player when hes not getting any minutes and hasnt shown any signs of being a good NBA player? Do you guys really think that if Morrison brought something to the table that Phil wouldn't find a spot for him in the rotation? Guys who end up on the bench without PT that usually can find a spot for them elsewhere are great athletes, it happens all the time from the likes of Shannon Brown to Gerald Wallace. The problem for those guys is that they didn't know how to properly use their athleticism to their advantage on both offense and defense.

Hes not good, thats why the Lakers kept him as an inactive. Hes not athletic enough, quick enough, strong enough, or mentally tough enough to play in the NBA.

Morrison is the worst player in the NBA under 6'10. There are some guys who are worse that are taller, but Morrison is the worst for guys shorter than being considered a big man.

Name me a swingman/guard who brings less to the table than Morrison. Have fun with that.

How was Morrison developing nicely in his rookie year, he averaged 11 PPG on 37% from the field.

Heres a stat that is very telling, he made 4.6 shots out of 12.1 shots attempted each game during the season.

He spent 5 months shooting sub-40% numbers from the field, and his minutes dwindled to finish the season.

Did I mention he played 0 defense?



by the time he came back, larry brown was coaching the bobcats and didnt try to utilize him, where he was traded to the lakers...where its hard to get pt let alone develop.
Larry Brown didn't want to utilize him because he brings nothing to the table. Same thing with Matt Carroll, another wing player Larry Brown got rid of. But Morrison is worse than Carroll considering Carroll atleast can spot up for 3.

Its not hard to get PT or develop in LA. LA has had numerous scrubs go to LA and have a productive season(s) from the likes of Smush Parker to Shannon Brown. If you can do something well you can get PT with the Lakers, Morrison cant do anything well therefore he gets 0 minutes per game.



there was a great article about him and reddick in the nba in sports illustrated a couple years ago. real sad story for morrison.

There is a difference between Redick and Morrison that people who know basketball realized early on, Redick was not expected to be a "Franchise" player he was commonly expected to be a spot shooter off the bench ala Steve Kerr. Redick isn't as deadly of a shooter as Kerr but Redick atleast is shooting a good % from 3.

Morrison was commonly compared to Larry Bird for no reason, its just what happens when the National media finds a mid major star player with a unique look and then he has some impressive games and they think they've found the next Larry Bird. Morrison was/will always be remembered as the guy they thought would be Bird, and didnt even turn out to be better than Jason Kapono.

There is a difference, John Starks was a defensive specialist along with being a good athlete.

There will probably be more stories of guys like Starks with ability that spent time waiting for the perfect NBA opportunity. I could name 5-10 guys like that with potential to be NBA players that wont get drafted in college basketball right now.

Adam Morrison got PT and was trash in Charlotte, he is not a good athlete and is not a good defender considering at 6'8 the expectation is for him to guard wing forwards. The SF position is the key position in the NBA right now in terms of overall depth of talent along with athletes, Morrison cant match up.

Morrison utilized his height as a SF in college, however in the NBA that advantage is not there. Hes a great college player but that doesn't translate to the NBA unless you are special.

Deshawn Stevenson is one of the best defenders in the NBA on the perimeter. For as crap as he is on offense along with his uncoachability and attitude he always found PT for his defense.

So you rank Kwame over Morrison because the 2001 draft was really such a deep and impressive draft.:rolleyes:

Sam Bowie had a productive career for a few seasons in the NBA, he was just picked before Jordan.

Olawakandi had a few productive seasons in his career, well atleast 1 season.:)

Morrison has been trash for his entire NBA career, and I dont see how he would put in work to be a better player elsewhere when hes not doing it now. If he was doing it now, dont you think he would have an opportunity elsewhere?

I never thought he'd be a great scorer in the league. I figured his ceiling would be 16ppg or so. He'll end up some bad team's bench next year. I could see Golden State giving him a chance or something. Just chuck up shots and not worry about D. I think he can be a role player at least. I was a big fan of his in college, sucks to see a #3 pick not do a thing in the league. I think if he didn't get injured things might have been slightly different.

He only tore his ACL, considering he wasnt a good athlete to begin with I didnt think it would be career altering.

Just look at Corey Brewer who suffered the same injury and is having a good season.

Also if you're going to play in Golden State you have to be athletic as a wing player, thats a common niche about Nellie Ball.

So winning a NBA Title only goes down on your legacy if you're a star player, and it has no weight on the legacy of a role player, or bench warmer?

Morrison IMO is a Top 5 Bust of All-Time, Im basically splitting hairs but atleast he has something on his resume of note when people look at it 10-15 years from now.

He is in the same boat as Scalabrine in Boston
Didn't do anything at all to help their teams win the championship yet get rings. Putting a ring on a bum or bench warmer doesn't dumb down the fact he is a failure in the NBA. I don't know how one can be proud having a ring only because they were traded o a loaded title contender because of their expiring contract off a rookie deal.

what im saying is Team usa generally scores like 85 ppg in fiba ball.

whenever they hit those 85 points they always win the game, no one overscores them ( check olympic finals against spain)

all their defeats have happened in games in wich their rival steped it up and held them under 75 points like greece, i think usa barely scored 60 that game.

That shouldnt happen if euros cant defffend as is the popular belief in usa wich this poster pointed out.

Not true.

Scal is pure crap, which is why hes one of the 5 worst players in the entire NBA. He gets a bad rap, solely because he takes up minutes that could've gone to Big Baby or someone else. I dont know why Boston gives him minutes.

I guess I've never been much of a ring counter anyway. Although basketball is certainly different from most major sports in that one great player can take a team a long way, I still believe that championships are a team function and you can't fault players too much for never winning one. If LeBron never wins won, I would still consider him a great player. He carried Cleveland to a EC Title with basically no one else on his team.

He'd be smart to leave the NBA and to play in Europe. He'll make a lot more money, and be much more appreciated.

Euroleage teams would love to have a guy with NBA championship experience under his belt, even if he never played.

easy buddyy... if u watchd the playoffs at all last year, u would have seen scal isnt a bum, hes not that bad a player just gets a bad wrap cus he is white and has red hair

Scal hits open 3's and has a strong body, nothing else after that. Don't hate him or think less of him. I just know he had nothing to do with Boston winning a title over LA and has a ring. So by some people's logic he is no bad player because he has a ring despite not aiding in it at all. My point is just because you have a ring doesn't mean you earned/contributed it and shouldn't boost whatever value you have. Adam got a ring for having an expiring contract, Scal got one for being the mascot :)

This really sucks for him, one of my favorite college players ever. It still might work out, and I wouldn't be at all surprised if someone ended up signing him.

He's never had an NBA career to lose first off. Secondly, he will probably go back to doing second rate porn.

So winning a NBA Title only goes down on your legacy if you're a star player, and it has no weight on the legacy of a role player, or bench warmer?

For scrub benchwarmers no


Morrison IMO is a Top 5 Bust of All-Time, Im basically splitting hairs but atleast he has something on his resume of note when people look at it 10-15 years from now.
Darko Milicic can make the same claim. It doesnt exonerate them of anything. Olowokandi was a huge bust so much that I dont even bother learning how to spell his name properly, and even hes a greater player than Morrison.

Yeah and that ring is gonna end up in a pawn shop somewhere in the next few years the way things are shaping up for him.

When did his career ever begin? I consider him something of the great white hope. I read a sports illustrated article about him when he was at Gonzaga and he was supposed to be the next Larry Bird. He's not 1/1000th of Bird and I felt he would be a bum from jump....

His contract expires at the end of the season with the Lakers, does anybody think he will be able to find a new team and atleast make his career as a bust somewhat respectable?

Morrison right now is in the Top 5 Busts in NBA History, hes not #1 because he atleast has 1 NBA Championship.

Uhhhhh NO! Not even in the top 10. His game was never seen as the type that would translate well to the next level. GMs and Scouts thought he would be nothing more that Mike Miller if that good. He was just soo hyped by fans because of his great play in college.

there are LOTs of other worse busts.

Im doing a research for a project im doing and there are top 5 picks that were absolutely awfull.

go search 1982 for example, ever heard of Bill garnett?

Totally agree!

i wonder why Team USa defeats in the last10 years have never come in 100+ point games but instead in games where the foreing team has been able to hold them in DEFENSE if all euros are so bad at it........

Im sorry but when the USA players actually care about the tourny/olympics that they are playing in, they demolish teams and there is no contest.

Excuse? Dude we as Americans could CARE LESS about international basketball. FIBA is a joke. The court is all weird and the rules are tailored to fit Euro style. American NBA players only care about money and NBA titles, and neither of those can be earned during international play.

Fiba awards around 20 million euros to the champs of world cup. so i guess at least 1 million goes to each player.

THeres something called PRIDE too.

Im sure back then in Indianapois worl cup 2002 Team usa didnt like losint not 1 not two but THREE games ( argentina, spain and...dont even remeber the third..Germany maybe?) and finish witoht even a miserable bronze medal in front of all their country .

What are you not getting? THEY DIDNT CARE!!!!!!!!! Karl was the coach and superstars were turning down invitations to play on the team left and right. in China, they actually did care and they destroyed everyone including your spaniards TWICE.

I think he might get one more shot for the vet min. But more likely, he'll try and make it in the Dleague.
It's a shame the Lakers couldn't trade him. I thought that was a valuable expiring.

They cared, they just didnt respect (and the stars were injured in 04). Thats not a good thing either way. USA cares and respects to the fullest now so if they lose again it will be monumental.

Dude the world was playing their best players. The USA Team were not.


Two NBA superstars, Ray Allen and Jason Kidd, accepted roles to play on the World Championship team, but were unable to play on that team due to injuries. Many other superstars, including Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, and Kevin Garnett, turned down invitations to play in that tournament.

Like somebody said we didnt care we care now if we ever loose again then it will be a big story

You cant be serious.

How can you even suggest he would be a good NBA player when hes not getting any minutes and hasnt shown any signs of being a good NBA player? Do you guys really think that if Morrison brought something to the table that Phil wouldn't find a spot for him in the rotation? Guys who end up on the bench without PT that usually can find a spot for them elsewhere are great athletes, it happens all the time from the likes of Shannon Brown to Gerald Wallace. The problem for those guys is that they didn't know how to properly use their athleticism to their advantage on both offense and defense.

Hes not good, thats why the Lakers kept him as an inactive. Hes not athletic enough, quick enough, strong enough, or mentally tough enough to play in the NBA.

If you read my post, I said that if he had more playing time he could or would be a god nba player. And petple with acl injurys are never themselves again.

Examples: Daunte Culpepper, Gilbert Arenas, etc..

Lol I love the trash talking when your beloved Gasol and Spaniards have delivered but ONE lonely medal in FIBA's 60 year history and TWO medals in the Olympics since 1936

To answer your question, they lost in the Semi's to the eventual winner (Argentina), who by the way is not in Europe, in 2004 taking the bronze

And they lost to Greece in 2006 Fiba after traveling across the world to frickin Japan. Again losing in the semis finishing with Bronze

Yeah no mention of 08 or 1992, 1996, and so on and so on. Them losing is probably the worst thing to happen for the rest of the world.
