I want a link to this "rumor". If it's not up by tomorrow this thread's getting deleted.
Aw man...don't do that! I NEVER get to use that "cool" quote and this was just the perfect opportunity (I'm really dying to use the quotes about the cost of ammo...hopefully Morrison will help me out there eventually).
Eh, if it's true it's his business...not like he parades it around. I can imagine enough people would give him enough grief (trainer, coach, players, etc.) that he'll eventually quit.
Eh, this is kinda dumb and pointless, regardless of whether or not it's true. I mean, a buddy of mine can run a mile in under 5 minutes and he smokes. And I worked with a guy who smokes but has run in 4 marathons. But I'm with you Timmeh.
Man you can hate on smoking all you want... but when someone starts talking about my beloved dip they have gone too far!
Yea, I've known plenty of guys who played sports and smoked, singers are always shown with big cigars.... when you are 20 something and smoke as long as you condition hard enough it's not going to impeded your athletic ability, 30 and 40 something.... your screwed.
Casey traveled to China with Blazers guard/forward Martell Webster and former Gonzaga star Adam Morrison (Charlotte) for an Adidas camp and both Webster and Casey had some funny stories about Morrison. My favorite was that Morrison is still into the chew (tobacco), but would also take smoke breaks with the Chinese outside the facility. They formed a semi-circle around the 6-foot-9 NBA player puffing away. How Morrison does it and still plays, nobody knows -- including Casey and Webster.
Seems true...I'd say Dwane Casey is a credible sourse. The "6'9" thing has me scratching my head tho.
