I’m not entirely sure why the basketball world is still fascinated with Adam Morrison, but that seems to be the case. I include myself in this generalization and I can tell you my reasons for still reading everything I see about Adam Morrison involve some combination of him being the best college player in the world and then being terrible in the NBA, often having a bad mustache, winning two championship rings and the fact that he still has the capability to dominate lesser European teams while still being young enough (28 yesterday, happy birthday) to conceivably make an NBA comeback. The fact that he consistently looks like a burnt-out replacement bassist helps too.
So just like last year, he’s your annual update on the whereabouts of Adam Morrison — he’s playing for the Clippers’ summer league team after an earlier stint with the Nets’ summer squad, trying to make it back to the NBA and says he will not completely ruin any defense that a team is trying to play. From ESPN’s Andrew McNeill:
“Everybody’s going to laugh, but I think I’ve played decent defensively,” he said. “Obviously I’m not Michael Cooper, but I’m not a complete sieve.”
This has been your annual Adam Morrison update for 2012: no facial hair and not the worst defensive player in basketball history. Supposedly. Check back next year. Thanks for reading.
