Just sayin'

Write this one down: Adam Morrison will be a terrific bust. He simply doesn't have the athleticism necessary to complement his skill set and make it in the NBA. Can you think of any current star who's remotely similar? Sure, people throw around Bird comparisons, but Bird was spectacularly talented and multidimensional in a way that Morrison isn't. It's just not going to happen.

Thanks for writing about sports, it's good to lighten things up once in a while. Morrison has some talent, but he also has those intangible qualities that the sportswriters refer to as "heart."

We'll see. He's no Larry Bird, but I think he may do alright.

When Gonzaga lost in the playoffs, my friends and I coined a new simile: to "cry like Morrison."
