    He should have been back in the NBA after his "summer League" performance a few years back. The media has destroyed Adam. He's a character for sure and played a part in his criticism. But wow. I do wish him well. What a shooter.

    I still have my "You Can't Stop the Stache" t-shirt. Will never forget the game when he had 41 against USF, those WCC road games were all crazy scenes that year.

    Good article. One thing that was always overlooked with the "bust" story was the effort to manage Type 1 with the grind of the NBA.

    Morrison was a real inspiration to many kids with diabetes. He was a force in College, but the pros was a stretch with his disease. Adam was smart in saving and investing and now can have a great life and just do what he waants.

    Thanks for sharing this article as it was very insightful and being Type I sure had an impact on his
    stamina...being so competitive also added stress to his life...

    Am really glad he is so happy and enjoying his retirement with his daughters and girl friend!

    In closing, it sure would be nice to earn 8% on my investments��

    I agree. My best friend has Type 1. The hypoglycemia is scary. I told my friend just last week that I would help her raise money for this documentary relating to Type 1 diabetes called the Human Trial.

    Hopefully a cure for both Adam and my friend is close! I plan on reaching out to AM as it relates to this documentary. I would match any donation he makes dollar for dollar to get this documentary running soon. Stay strong Adam! xoxoxooxoxoxoxooxoxoxox Valxoxoxooxoxooxo

    Love you guys...Have a beautiful, safe, prosperous and above all healthy summer. Our team is shaping up to be very good next year!

    Were things really that bad re: Wiltjer? I was surprised that Morrison got lawyers involved and was even contemplating a defamation lawsuit against him. That must have made for a pretty awkward locker room.

    All very interesting (but maybe a little bit boring), but is my favorite GU BB trivia question still intact? Who is the only GU graduate to win 2 NBA Championship Rings?
    Ammo!

    The contemplated suit was almost certainly against the New York paper, not Wiltjer. Wiltjer did not publish anything, he just did a radio interview and acknowledged he had never been to Ammo's house. It is what the New York paper did to blow it out of whack that upset Ammo--and I can see why.
