Video: Adam Morrison Ejected After a Shoving Match

This is what it’s come down to for Adam Morrison, the former third overall NBA Draft pick, who has let his hair grow out of control, and is shoving random European dudes while playing for a Serbian team.

    Atleast he’s got that old college passion back.

  • Seriously

    Come on, whats the difference between him playing in Europe and e.g Gallinari playing in Europe.. These are the best fans in the world that he is playing for, just look at the atmosphere..

  • Leoni

    I wish that the NBA fans had that much passion…It can be a sold out crowd, a playoff game, yet all you get is the occasional “d-fence” chant, it’s sad really.

  • Chris

    Looks like he came straight outta Pirates of the Caribbean

  • AT33

    That’s one of the best clubs in Europe he’s playing for!!! Dang.. he’s gonna kill the Euro-league this year! I’m happy he found a good club to show the world he can still ball. Good job!

  • robb

    he looks just like Andrew W.K. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Andrew_W.K.

  • MikeC.

    Looks like they have weights in Serbia. Morrison has some muscles now.

    There had to be something before that cuz Morrison instigated that whole thing. And his hair is ridiculous.

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com Seth

    Atmosphere at basketball games over there… totally different than the NBA :O


    these fans have the same passion as those soccer nutcases


    At least he looks European now

  • aussieballer

    that crowd is incredible… up 20 in a regular season game, and they’re still going crazy!! If that we’re an NBA game, half the crowd wuld’ve already been leaving to try and beat the traffic!

    Getting ejected- So easy, a caveman can do it…

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    You go, girl!

  • RaZkOL

    He’s just mad he’s not in the NBA so he pushed that poor man.

  • Greg

    That hair is awesome, what are you talking about?

    Roids would explain

    a) the new muscles

    b) the anger

    Me likey.

  • Euroguy

    Now thats what they call a “friendly” game over here. Do you realise it was just a test match? :D hahahahahaha! i like.

  • J.C.

    European fans be crazy.

  • http://www.optimabbc.be Max


  • Euroguy

    btw, thats not a random european dude. thats a 19 year old german ;-)

  • http://fivemag.de Speedy

    Total overreaction.
    I mean his team is up by twenty.
    It seams as he starts to cry after coach Pesic says something to him when he sits down.

  • http://fivemag.de Speedy

    It’s a friendly match.
    Nothing on the line.

  • http://bedotwater.bandcamp.com BE.water

    Im sayin, dude was lookin mighty strong out there. lol

  • Dr. DL

    I agree, Morrison looks pretty buff. And I think the hair is badass. I always liked his game and his passion so I was really bummed when he washed out of the NBA. It’s great to see he is playing some meaningful ball these days; he’s a talented dude. I’m still surprised no NBA team wants him. He has a very advanced offensive game even though he really isn’t built to be a first option. But he can absolutely do the same things as rangy SF’s with solid handles like Turkoglu or Dunleavy. I was also blown away by the fan energy in that arena. That was soccer hooligan level intensity. I wish NBA games were like that. Guys who play overseas during the lockout just might get a taste of that fervor and decide to stay put.

  • David Moore

    This is the Adam Morrison we needed in the NBA.

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    Hell yeah! Muscles, the hair, the passion, the crowd eating it up and hollering. Ammo lives!

  • http://slamonline.com Ugh

    @Enigmatic – Did you just call Ammo a girl because he has long hair? Were you born in 1935 or something?

  • dahon

    2 nba rings…hes a champ

  • TruthHurts

    Co-sign Ugh.

  • Jerome

    Nice. He’s got more going than most NBAers. 2 rings and a league to play in. Jee-zuss walks!

  • LOL@Morrison

    LMAO He’s acting all tough since their is no sign of any black guys on the court. If Kobe or even Jason Collins were there, he would be acting all shy and awkward.

    (nice arms btw, ammo. ‘Roid up much?)

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    The highlight… of his entire professional career.
    What a damn shame.
    One of the greatest busts of all time.

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    Oh and, if he was Black, the whole arena, including his teammates AND the ref(s) would have jumped on his ass.

  • Euroguy

    i strongly disagree. him to be playin there, gettin all the love. new country, new people, new language…thats all an incomparable experience. he should love every minute of it and i am sure he does. some things money cant buy – for all the other things in life theres masterc.. oh uh the NBA :D

  • Euroguy

    @Philosopher´s 2nd post: WHAT? how the hell do you come up with that?!?!?!? he is wearing the red star jersey. end of story. color of skin doesnt matter.
    in fact color dont matter half as much over here than it does in the states (that would be funny if it werent so sad).

  • http://sajkflf.com Jukai

    I gotta say, Morrison looks freaking thuggish now that he left the states. Muscles, long greased hair, creepy goatee. Damn.

  • http://Www.fiba.com Darksaber

    Word to Euroguy: if you produce on the court in Belgrade, they will luv ya. Skincolour be damned.
    Ask Bo McCalebb how the Arena was chanting his name when he led Partizan to the Euroleague semis 2 seasons ago.

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    All of that “if you produce” is cute for the guy with the colored skin.
    As long as he doesn’t do what Morrison did.
    Mocking the situation as he humiliates himself AND the game.
    Would NOT have been tolerated.
    Not even for a second.

  • http://fivemag.de Speedy

    The Philosopher really thinks that he knows what he is talking about. Are you from Europe?
    If you don’t produce your skin can be as white as it goes you will be chanted out of the stadium.

  • http://www.danchamb.com.br Lz – Cphfinest3

    This is real fans, the people who fill NBA arenas are sad excuses for fans. Philosopher you are in over your head, it is all about the color of the jersey, not the skin. Focusing on race/color at every turn just help feed the beast that is racism. People are people, stop focusing on negative angles.

  • http://Www.fiba.ch Darksaber

    Oh please, i’m black and played in Europe and in my prime i was the loudest mouth on the court. Mostly cause i could back it up and also out of overconfidence/natural bravado.
    Been in tussles, bench clearers and iffy situations with road crowds: never got boo’d cause of my skin colour. There where a few race-related issues, but NEVER in a group situation. Most were negative reactions by individuals.
    So to just lump the Belgrade crowd (how dumb was that original statement by Philosopher; Adam plays for them!) or any Euro crowd into the ‘racist’ group was just wrong.
    I watch Euro comp, a lot. And even during Some of the worst altercations in recent years (Greek finals, Olymp fans vs.Pana team or Pre-WC brawl between SRB & GRE for example) black players were not specifically targeted.

  • Pedestrian Nightmare

    Philosopher, you have no idea … cosign Euroguy, race is much more an issue in the US

  • Brooks C.

    Russell Branyon plays basketball 2?

  • idrees

    i haven’t heard anything about him since the lakers…

  • TruthHurts

    Wow, lost all respect for “the philosopher” on that one.
    Co-sign Speedy.

  • http://www.bulls.com Enigmatic

    @Ugh -”Ammo”? Really?

  • http://twitter.com/BeezKneezy LA Huey

    You can call these fans “great” if you want. I would not take my kids to see a game in the same stands as these types.

  • http://dafklfl.com Jukai

    The Philosopher is making stuff up again?

  • duhwinning

    hes an diabetic we get antsy when our blood sugars low……lol

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    So, you are telling me that as long as a Black player produces, he can do what Adam Morrison just did? As the most hated person in the world?
    Come on, man.
    Look, I understand that some people like to act like that this and that isn’t real, and what not… but you know better. I know you do.
    To the rest of my brethren concerning this thread:
    My point is not about who does or who does not produce. My point is that, if Morrison was Black, whether he produced or not, that acture would not be tolerated.
    Name me an incident where a Black player made an attempt at doing what Adam Morrison did.
    And, I’ll shut the hell up about it.
    And, yes, I have been to Europe…

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    Now, concerning your 11:57a.m. comment;
    Did any Black player start any trouble during said incident(s that you mentioned)?
    Of course they didn’t. That is why they weren’t “specifically targeted”.
    Anyways, I am intrigued by Jukai’s last statement.
    Would have more respect for you (not that it matters) if you came at me earlier. Our other SLAM brethren must have given you a little confidence.
    And, please do not try to use an excuse such as, “you didn’t see my comments until later on”, or, whatever…
    That was a cowardice move on your part, my good brother.

  • http://fivemag.de Speedy

    You don’t get it Philo.

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    Maybe I don’t.
    I just know only what I’ve seen, and what I’ve experienced.

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    Or, what I’ve not seen…

  • 3John3

    Wow! thats just to funny lol!

  • http://Www.fiba.com Darksaber

    Nice try Philosopher, pick a point out of the whole answer then ask for ‘proof’. Well going by your original post which got a few here going, a black Adam Morrison would have been jumped by HIS fans, the refs and maybe even the announcer if he had dared to shove an opponent in the heat of the game? U do recognize that Adam was playing at home right and what you originally assumed was nonsense?
    So because the chinese team (Bayi Rockets) lost their damn minds against Georgetown now everytime a dark skinned player flips out or defends himself aggressively we should expect arena-wide anarchism?
    As for your demand, remember when SRB and GRE went at it last summer? Nenad’s chair throwing episode? Schortsanitis, good ‘ol baby Shaq, was at one point pummeling a player on the ground (THAT was a disgrace by Sofo). Didn’t see any fans etc try to enter the fray there bud. Sorry i don’t have more examples off the top of my head where EU-fans collectively decided to “jump the black dude’s ass” cause his actions cannot be tolerated.
    How about you give us an example of racist european fans attacking a player on their own team during a bball game
    because he humiliated the game, as you put it?

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    I went over board saying that the entire world would jump on him if he was Black.
    I did.
    All that I’m saying is that, it wouldn’t have been tolerated. All kinds of phone calls would be coming down. That’s all I’m saying.
    But yes, I was a nut for saying that the whole arena would jump him. I guess people really took that a bit seriously.
    My bad.
    I’ll say that… the REACTION from the people that matter would be “different”. All the way to the press.

  • http://www.fiba.com Darksaber

    It’s cool, Philo. Guess most here were just reacting to your initial comment, and i for one didn’t like the generalisation. Of course there are racists everywhere, EU or USA.
    Hopefully not race-related but super tragic nonetheless, i just read on Eurobasket that a US player (Chauncy Hardy)was jumped in a bar in Romania after a game and beaten to death.
    Hope they catch those bastards who did it.

  • dex

    Philosopher, you are so wrong. I am from Serbia, and I can give you an example. Few years ago Red Star (the same team) signed Tunji Avojobi. You can guess by his name that he is not white. :)
    In the finals, he wasn’t agreed with some decision made by the referee, and he went to the line of free throw, and he didn’t want to move from there. So the visiting team couldn’t get a free throw, and nobody wanted to argue with him, because, he was an ex boxer. Not only the fans didn’t throw the cell phones, seats, or anything, they strongly back him up. They even sing a song for him! Now, I don’t have the clip from that incident, but this is from the same game! So, you are very, very wrong!
    The whistles are ment for the referees, and you can hear at the end of the clip ,,Tunji Avojobi ooooooo”, so the fans are chanting his name!


    and this is from the same game, and again, they are chanting his name!

    @Spaceship: Appreciate the insight.
    Appreciate your tolerance to my ignorance.
    Understood, my good brother. Understood.
    And, maybe I am wrong. I’d hope that I would be wrong in every one of my accusations of racism, you know?
    But one question;
    Did the fellow ball player wrongly exact, or procure any acture of physical aggression toward another fellow?
