Morrison can play off guard and small forward.

1, 4, and 5 are absolutely out of the question.

Unlike many on this board, I think Morrison, in the pros, will be better suited as a 2 guard, both offensively, and defensively, although, he will be able to guard SF's.

His game reminds me of Rip Hamilton/Reggie Miller, with Ray Allen's quickness/quick release, and good size to boot.

I was also amazed that he benched 3 more bench press reps tahn either Tyrus Thomas or Lamarcus Aldridge.

What he really needs to do to be the player he can be is very intensive ball handling work(not that his handles aren't good, he broke presses @ Gonzaga), and he must also do defensive slide drills until his hips and thighs are bruning.

\Oh, and Portland, or Golden State are his best fits

Its simple here in Charlotte we have a bad team, and bad teams take teh best player available not the one that plays a position they are weak. Also when you consider that Wallace can guard 2s on D and play the 3 on offense the position situation is not that bad of a fit.

I see him playing SF. He's too weak to play PF in the NBA. I would love to see him go to Charlotte!

Morrison is an SF and nothing but an SF, end of topic right there.

He is already a bad defender and relatively unathletic but he is just too slow to guard 2-guards in the NBA.

I see Adam ending up being the next Reggie Miller, and you can quote me on that. He'll be the heart and soul of a team, be known around the league for his attitude of never giving up on a game, but yet he'll never be a huge scorer or a dominating force, mainly because he isn't great defensively and is kind of skinny for his height. He'll fill the same role, and leave just as big a legacy, just wait and see
