    This is a very very relatable video, I have type 1 diabetes and I got it when I was 14 just 6 days before my birthday. Just to even make it to the nba with a disease like this is extremely difficult and even though he failed it seems like he never gave up

    It's amazing how different the college game is from the NBA. Look at Doug McDermott. A college phenom. Breaks all scoring records. Scores from anywhere, in all kinds of ways. Looks unbeatable. The Bulls draft him. He is in the league. Not a bust. But, also not the success that was expected of him. He is an average player, like one that may have been drafted in the second round. Then again, you get players like Ben Wallace, undrafted. Must have underwhelmed in college. But, becomes an all-star in the NBA. Basketball sure can be a funny game.

    It won’t stop but people (experts) need to stop comparing collegiate players going in the draft to legends or all star players. Whether it’s basketball or football. It needs to stop. Being great in college is far different from being great in the pros.

    Sounds like Morrison's main issue was simply that he was too much of a liability on D to compensate for.

    He probably gotta check and didn’t want to play or work hard to stay in the nba. It happens, you think 20 30 mill your good if you know how to manage money or your like that’s enough money for me to live the rest of my life and just be good on doing anything

    Being labeled as the “next Larry Bird” is a heck of a lot for any player to try and live up to. Their shots were kind of similar but that’s where the comparison ends. IMO Larry Bird is one of the top 10 players of all time and that is coming from a life long Laker fan. Glad to hear that Morrison has a very nice family and is living a happy and contented life. He was very smart to make a priority of investing his basketball earnings vs. blowing them on a bunch of nonsensical adult toys. Best wishes to him.

    y'all speak about him like as if he died or something and now you're making a video paying a tribute to his life from his highs and lows. The man was just never that good. Big fish in a small pond. Once he got into the ocean and played with nba players on the regular he couldn't keep up & he couldn't adapt. JJ Reddick isn't any better either... still better than morrison but neither of them held a candle anywhere near Larry Bird.

    You have to be black to even be considered worthy in the NBA now days... BASKETBALL IS AT AN ALL TIME HIGH IN POPULARITY AND ALL TIME LOW IN FUNDAMENTALS AND TEAM PLAY...

      that's what im saying. LOL. J/k I know of JJ Reddick... he's part of the 76ers currently. He's mediocre but has a decent roll as a shooter.
