The way I see it, no matter how many ppg Morrison averages, these other guys are gonna have to step up

Morrison 15-20 ppg
Felton 10-15 ppg
Okafor 10-15 ppg
Wallace 10-15 ppg
May 5-10 ppg
Brezec 5-10 ppg

with the rest of the bench accounting for somewhere between 5-10 ppg. That's what we'll need to do to have a good year this year

17-19 ppg for Morrison sounds about right. I don't see the rest of this squad giving up TOO many shots to a rookie. He went for 25 in the first half of tonight's summer league game!

While Morrison will have a grand opportunity to get 20 PPG, we shouldn't raise the bar quite yet. Give him a few seasons to adjust to the NBA level of play, then we'll expect some good/great production from the kid. I believe like a few others have said, Bickerstaff will want to continue the development of guys like May, Okafor and Felton. This will somewhat hinder Morrison's field goal's per game, but I believe he will make the best with what he gets. Besides, Morrison will probably be their number one option by the second half the season.

Anyone reading May's Blog from Orlando on the official site? This is unintentionally hilarious to me:

"The story of the game though had to be Adam (Morrison). He had 25 points in the first half that was pretty impressive. The kid was just played extremely well and the basket had to look huge in his eyes. Once you get on a hot streak like that, things open up so much. Everybody knows the kid can score and he did a good job proving it tonight. Adding him to this team is going to make things a lot more interesting with our post game, because we got guys who can handle one-on-one defense in the post. We just need more shooters and more scorers to open things up, and I think adding Adam will make things a lot easier for us inside."

Morrison is THREE MONTHS younger than May (and less than one month yojnger than Felton). I can hear May lecturing Morrison:

"Yeah May and June of 1984 were watershed times, kid. I'm sorry you weren't alive to witness the turbulence that shaped me, kid. I think Ghostbusters came out during the interim between my birth and yours, kid."

Ok yeah--May is technically a sophomore in the league, but he got limited burn in like 20 games and then sat on the bench the rest of the season. It's not like he's some weathered old graybeard. Maybe he just wants to pull some rank--Morrison getting all this hype and May being somewhat forgotten after missing most of last season.

And don't get me wrong--I LIKE May and obviously he's giving Morrison props. I just think it's funny.

I'm rarely excited about a rookie, but I'm damn high on Morrison.

Everything he still needs to do to compete in the NBA, he can do (bulk up, adjust to the speed of the game), the rest he already possesses. That guy just knows the game and is fundamentally so incredibly sound.

I love this kid. He'll be really good by the end of this season.
