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
I don't care if he was an nba bust, to accomplish what he did with type 1 diabetes was incredible!
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.
Adam Morison is a NBA champion
I remember his retirement ceremony. The NBA was never same.
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
Damn .. Seeing this only made Me wish He was as successful as they hoped ..
i should choke you out for even mentioning this dude in the same breath as larry :(
J.j is a punk..
Everyone talkin about him and bird but all I see is Dirk in him
So his real name is Adam "Stingky-Dinky" Morrison?
10:03 wtf he was 6-8 and 198 pounds
Magic Johnson cast a curse so that there would never again be another Larry Bird.
kinda looklike steven adams for me lol
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 have a 40 inch vert. I’m only 5’7” though. So I can only reverse windmill off two feet.
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.
“Larry Bird, with a 40 inch vertical!”
Yo I’m type one what a great representative for our kind lol
He refused to use the shower
How did you fail?
shout out to TKE lmao
Labeling a kid the next Larry Bird is more of a kiss of death than labeling them the next MJ
Trash Jordan's Worst Pick ever ....
Meh, I guess. He made his money and won 2 rings so i'm sure he's happy.
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!
Isnt this the dude that had the most annoying voice in his videos ever?
He did not take showers. Ask Gerald Wallace.
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!!!!
The same man who thought Kwame Brown warranted #1 pick status LOL!!!!
Bobby Clarke was a diabetic and all he did was go to the NHL HOF
Let's face it- he was a nut, an emotional basket case. That's why he was an NBA bust.
Do a what happened to former Seattle Supersonic Robert Swift.
The black men held him down
It was all mental with him
Never even heard of this dude
Larry bird wouldnt cry on the court if they got knocked out of the tournament.
To much crack
Eddie Guerrero can hoop
atleast adam gotta ring.. jj still dont
Maybe he just wasn't that good. College and Pro are totally different.
Living in a bunker......??? Who are you........??? ANYONE who listens to the GU games on the radio can hear Adam cause he is the Sportscaster... Dipshit.........
atleast adam gotta ring... jj still dont
Provocative title, but entirely untrue. Next Larry Bird? Larry Legend was light years better than this kid at the same age.
My man wouldn't shower
He chose Weed over Basketball!
never heard of him before
Morrison had a bigger vertical and a smaller heart than Larry Bird.
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.
How do you not have a job at NBA channel? best researcher ever
U are a racist
Still has 2 rings.
Hey Shoutout to Gerald Wallace
That was way too much time spent on Adam"no shower" Morrison.💩🔥💩🔥
So sad for him :(
He failed because of that dirty stache
How was i unsubscribed? Glad i found your channel again.
It was college!! Jimmer Ferdette anyone?
It's nice to see he has a family of his own and is doing well, he's not still an nba player; but he's living the dream - being able to take care of his family with a job he loves
I don't care, he got ring
I work at Costco :(
I heard he smelled really bad. And guys didn't want to be around him BC he stank
"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.
I knew he was gonna be a bust from the beginning, no athleticism
+Edwin Lindley you right about that, it ro compare gim to larry bird no way no how lol in my rob parker voice lol
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.
he did get a ring with the Lakers for riding the pine.
Only one Larry Bird
It was Batista's fault.
how come we can only compare players to other players of that race? in my opinion KD is the closest the to Larry Bird we have ever had but nobody will ever make that comparison but me.
You really call Lonzo Ball Steph Curry with a 40 inch vert... that really happened
Meet Steph Curry. Lonzo Ball without a 40 inch vertical
You do realize you don't have to emphasize the word by pronouncing it "thee" with emphasis, every single freaking time! Do you tell your girlfriend, "hey babe, I'm going to "THEE" store, be right back", lol.
One of my favorite college player at that time
At least he made it to the nba made the money I’m sure he fucked plenty of hoes for having all that money he made it at the end of the day
Make a video about Felipe Lopez!!!
I remember when some of the analyst were saying that Danny Manning was going to be the next Larry Bird . Please do a video on Manning's career .
ANOTHER great white hope turned out to be ANOTHER great white hype !! HOWEVER Larry Bird was one bad MOFO!!
Motherfuckas got two rings! Who cares how !
Wasn’t that the dude who they forced to take a bath 🛀 🤔
Really quality video! Thanks
Do the number one pick andrei
He wasn't good. Mystery solved.
Big Charlotte basketball fan here. We all knew he would be trash.
once you are drafted by bobcats, you will be a nobody
another dumb Jordan pick
That redneck role in the NBA? Bye Bye.
Diabetes + ripped up knee = NBA wasn't in his long term future....
Inconsistent play & Severe injures cost him his NBA career
Kobe Bryant once said that one of the best defenders he ever faced was adam morrison (in a lakers practice pickup game though)
Mike look like he’s been drinking quite a bit
I'm just picturing Gerald Wallace walking up to you with a towel + soap + shampoo like "c'mon dog... you know what it is" and you try to be all like "naw man I'm good" and gerald's like "but we're not... 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.
Back in the day i used to turn Adam Morrison into the 2nd coming of Jesus Adam Morrinson and DJ Mbenga curse the Lakers for cutting them
Long story short. He tored his ACL
awesome video but what's up w the "would" tense, man? you say would too many times when instead you can just say "after that season, morrison was cut" instead of "he would get cut"
Adam Morrison- shorter Steven adams
