When asked to assess his career, (Adam) Morrison said he would give himself "a C-minus."

"It was a high pick, so there is going to be more pressure. That's the way this sports, entertainment thing works, so this is part of the deal," Morrison said. "I was hoping to have a job in Charlotte, be one of the starters. But it didn't happen in that situation. Going to L.A., we all know that story.

"I've won two championships. I've been lucky enough to do that," he said. "Other than that, I spent a year off not playing, and then I guess since I haven't played, it's been bad. That's how everybody else views it."

Al Jefferson. 6'9.75" with shoes. 7'2.5" wingspan. 9'2" standing reach.
Carlos Boozer. 6'9.5" with shoes. 7'2.25" wingspan. 9'0.5" standing reach.

lol

NBA.com labels him at 6'10" thats what I was referencing and all those measurements still give him a slight advantage over Boozer.

Listed measurements on NBA.com are rarely accurate.

My measurements are combine measurements though, so both players could have grown since then

Ammo just doesn't have any drive or competitiveness. I can't believe that guy was so good at Gonzaga.

WTF happened.

Where is this guy? Yeah, he was very socially awkward. But so is Joakim Noah, and yet that guy earned everybody's respect with his play.

Because Morrison is likable, extremely weird, and he makes me laugh
Damn. Brian Windhorst, who was the Cavs' beat writer and absolutely loved by their fan base, is taking his talents to South Beach

Ouch. LOL.

Im a huge fan of Gonzaga and Morrison and I hope he's able to show some of the talent he had in Spokane.
