    That is awesome that he was smart with his money and has a lot of perspective on his basketballs journey

    I could be wrong but we haven't really had a great white American player since Bird which tells me Bird will always be in a class of his own

  • Kombaiyashii

    I don't care if he was an nba bust, to accomplish what he did with type 1 diabetes was incredible!

  • Casey28f02

    Your making t1 diabetes sound a lot worse me and my brother have it and I play in the youth sbc league (the Scottish bball league) if I'm playing a big match or doing some hard training I just eat something before it like a chocolate bar to boost my blood sugar and you only need to take insulin if you are eating something like a meal or a snack with more than 15 carbs.

    he's obviously not a failure you know making it as a college player of the year and to the NBA and you know a couple championships with the LA Lakers he's definitely not a failure in fact he he did rather well

    Gonzaga played garbage back then. What i remember most about him was getting free throws for running over his own player, while the nearest defender was 10 feet away. That won him a tournament game. What i saw was refs giving the kid with diabetes crap fouls to make him look better.

    sports is all about the system. will tom brady be a GOAT if he had played for the Browns or anywhere without Belichieck? Look at all the QBs that were good with Beliechieck and sucked after they left him. Look at all the NBA stars that failed after they left their all-pro team. Same can be said with Hockey players too. baseball is the only sport that an individual can succeed by being selfish. Even then, Its still predicated by management. Just look at baseball and Bryce Harper. $400 million for a strikeout machine that I can get for $100 in Mark Reynolds or Chris Davis. Its all about being in the right system that can bring out the best in you

    Magic Johnson cast a curse so that there would never again be another Larry Bird.

    WAIT, I watched him in Preseason his 2nd season . He was actually looking really good before he tore his ACL. You could tell mentally he was weak though, and Larry Brown didn't help that either.

    I honestly do not recall that, at all. The dude had nothing in common with Bird. Well, not true, both had terrible staches, and low melanin. His only discernible skill was dribbling with his right hand, while looking at the ball.

    He was not, nor would he ever have been anything close to Larry Bird! He and Bird shared the same skin color that's all. That is a pretty stupid reason to draw any comparison!

    And who drafted Adam Morrison? Hint: an individual that is praised as an NBA great (rightfully so) but is a terrible owner and has ruined Kemba Walker's career. Again, DRAFTED ADAM MORRISON!!!!

    Do a Danny Ferry video. He was going to be the next big thing. So big that when the Clippers drafted him. Ferry went to play in Italy instead of playing for the Clippers. Then Cleveland traded for him. Gave Ferry a big contract. And then Ferry turned out to be a giant bust of a player.

    I heard he smelled really bad. And guys didn't want to be around him BC he stank

  • iRant4Food

    "You cant help but to feel bad for him." yeahhh I dont feel bad for him. It's not like his diabetes became aggressive and prevented him from being a dominant force in the league or some other tragedy happened. He had a good college run and was given a good opportunity to make a run in the league and just couldnt deliver. He won 2 rings, made millions, invested and like he said...he isnt working at costco.

      He was a classic twinner. To slow to play small forward. Not strong enough to play power forward.

    It's so good to learn that he didn't blow his money and end up broke and miserable like Latrell Spewell and others. Morrison wont admit it but his medical troubles are what stopped him. He looked depleted and more like a shadow of the man who played at Gonzaga.

Don't make me go all rub-a-dub-dub on your ass" and you try to figure out how you're not gonna piss off Gerald Wallace, who's even got a shower cap on for added effect.
