The Oregonian has a new and pretty interesting article on Adam. Here's the link to the article if anyone is interested: http://www.oregonlive.com/blazers/index.ssf/2012/10/adam_morrisons_ongoing_journey_could_land_him_a_sp .html

Good story! Radbooks posted this in old dogs yesterday, though. Still, it's enlightening and a good bit of pub for Adam!

he can play like he did in the summer league -- showing leadership, great shot selection and accuracy, savvy and teamwork -- I believe he has a very good shot at getting a job in the NBA.

I'm excited for Ammo and for all of his fans who are hoping he will get another chance to shine. And then to have him do just that: shine like we know he can. And has.

Stay thirsty, and healthy, my friend.

I saw a video interview of Adam the other day, and was really impressed with how well spoken he was. I think it was on the KXLY page with the first day of practice interveiws. Sorry I don't have the link.

If he is truly capable, then I hope he doesn't follow through on the threat that he will leave basketball altogether if he doesn't make it this year. I'm sure he is tired of the labels and barriers, but it takes time to find the right team and build momentum to break into the "cliques" each team has. To be a perfect fit for a team that has 6-7 guys who can start is tough and when you only get to try out for 2-3 teams it limits what you can do in any given pre-season.

Adam has to pick a path and stick to it. We all do. No "give-backsies" and get start over with the knowledge we have now. I wish I could use all my valuable hindsight for things other than learning lessons and building character.

True Zagittude right there!

Adam played 5 min., 0/2 with 1 PF tonight, all midway through the 1st half, and yet the Blazers had 2 players that were 5/15 and 5/16. I understand that they are probably under contract, with a much more expensive buyout, but a shooter has to shoot, and needs time to get into a rhythm.
And why, since I'm grousing, did the Celtics and Wizards bring in Downs and Gray, if they aren't going to play them at all?
Pargo didn't shoot well, but hit the shots that took the game into OT, and tied for the team lead in assists with 5.
Sometimes the NBA GM's don't seem to have a brain...or a heart, not sure which (maybe they lack both)!
