Adam Morrison Joining the Gonzaga Coaching Staff

NBA washout Adam Morrison is headed back to school — Morrison will join Gonzaga’s coaching staff next season, as a student assistant. Per CBS Sports: “Former Gonzaga star and National Player of the Year Adam Morrison is taking classes at the West Coast Conference school and will be a member of the Bulldogs’ coaching staff this season, coach Mark Few said on Thursday. ‘He’ll be a student assistant,’ Few said. ‘It’ll be great. The players really respect him.’ Morrison, 28, became a college basketball icon — thanks in part to a 28.1 points per game scoring average and unforgettable mustache — in 2006 while leading Gonzaga to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament. The 6-foot-8 forward was named a First Team All-American and the Chevrolet National Player of the Year that season before becoming the third overall pick of the 2006 NBA Draft. He spent four years in the NBA, where he was a member of two championship teams with the Lakers in 2009 and 2010.”

    Sam Bowie a bust?? what about this guy????

  • Da-Meat-Hook

    I never followed him enough to understand his demise. I mean, there are quite a few examples of below average athletes who find their niche as role playing spot-up shooters. Did Morrison have bad work ethic, a bad attitude, complications with his Diabetes, or was it something else?

    I always remember Kobe saying he could really play. He said it with such conviction, that you believed him. This guy could play, it just never seemed to work out for him I guess.

    I don’t think Adam Morrison was ever able to adjust from being the superstar he as in college to being a role player in the NBA. He just couldn’t adjust from jacking up 25 footers whenever he got the ball to being a spot up shooter who MIGHT get 5 shots a game. Some guys are able to make the adjustment, like JJ Reddick, and carve a niche for themselves in the League and others aren’t.

    Not his fault Jordan took him with that ridiculous pick. Not his fault that he got hurt. No one can take away or knock what he did in college. And now he is back in school and has a job. No shame in any of that. Big ups to him.
