Question ahhh, help... im starting to think i want morrison #1!

:confused:

this guy is impressing in workouts, he's hitting shots from everywhere, and he has immense passion and heart... could he be a good fit for the raps?

ok, he'll suck on D, and doesn't blow anyone away with his rebounding... but he can be the team 1st scorer that mike james couldnt... from the sf position.

we would have to play a lot like phoenix, and by that i mean, score a lot, and apply a lot of pressure defensively... score or miss, toronto could run the ball and get easy buckets from any one of their players... and if they're forced to put operate in the halfcourt, they will have 3 stud offensive players ready to fill it up. morrison just wants to flat out win... and he just finished dominating the college level... scoring something like 33 ppg.

am i wrong to think he COULD go #1 to us? with only 12 days to go, i'm not sure what to believe anymore...

I'm going through something similiar man. I agree with every point you made. I'm not sure what to think about it either. I think I'd be really happy if they picked him, but at the same time if they pick someone else and justified the pick I'd probably be just as happy. We'll see what happens tho i guess.

I went from hating the idea to being at a point where I would accept it. Not my first choice, but the amount of interest this guy is getting from all the top teams makes me think he might be worth it.

Arrow niiice

good to hear im not alone.

this guy could be one of those 'special' players who always seem to get the job done. we would then just have to make sure we resign mopete for another three seasons, and pick up a point guard along the way.

with colangelo's eye for talent, we should easily be able to patch up the holes in our bench.

Beleive it or not, Morrison is actually my first choice. I just love his passion for the game, not to mention he's money. I can't picture him in a Raptors jersey though. I see it in my head and it just doesn't look right.

He really strikes me as a winner. Moreso then Alridge or Gay. Guy just has the will to win and will give 100% every game. He would be an instant fan favourite.

What i wonder about with Morrison and i did get to watch a few Zags game here in Calgary isn't his scoring or shooting. I wonder how his rebounding, passing and defence are goin to be. I know he will give it his all but his he goin to be athletic enough to do the little things in the NBA.

if the raps pick him, he will become effected by his diabeities and end his career in 2 seasons, (but not if anyone else picks him, thats just our luck)

i can't see passing being a problem. he was the go-to guy at gonzaga, didn't have any players on his level there, which is not the case in toronto. his rebounding will be average, maybe 2-3 a game... and his defence will suck...

My mind changes everyday in whom I want us to pick. The only guys that I dont want are Tyrus Thomas and Bargnani. If we choose Aldridge or Morrison #1, i'll be happy. If we trade down and choose Roy, Gay or Williams, i'll be happy. I just don't know anymore but I have faith in BC making the right choice.

i agree, although i'd rather have bargnani than thomas. luckily for the raps, we have a lot of holes to fill and all of these guys have immense talent.

I don't think there is any chance at all of us picking Thomas, so we can all breathe a sigh of relief. He's an athletic 4 and he's not versatile enough (like Bargnani) to play multiple positions. Colangelo will not take him.

I made a thread similar to this a few days ago; I would have no bitter feelings if Morrison is selected.

Although, I would rather a trade down to the 3 spot to bring Brevin Knight to Toronto, or simply take LA at number 1.

The biggest nay nay about Morrison, that I think can be credited to Orealius who said it first, is that Adam Morrison will not improve much. What new skills can he possibly attain? Players with good athleticism can improve their shot and develop their basketball IQ - Morrison excels at both already, but he cannot similarly improve his athleticism.

Edit: Sorry, I just read my post and fixed the errors
