Following practice today, #Blazers informed Justin Holiday, Coby Karl and Adam Morrison that they will be placed on waivers tomorrow (Sat)

Quote:
“I'm going to finish school and start coaching (If he doesn't make the Trail Blazers roster) … I did the Europe thing and it just wasn't for me,” Morrison told CSNNW.com. “Not saying the (Europe) culture or anything like that, (or) the people, it just wasn't for me. So, yeah, if it doesn't work out, I'm willing to look myself in the mirror and say, ‘I gave it a honest shot' and turn the page. Do something else.”


The NBA can be so cruel sometimes

Blazers shouldn't waive Coby Karl. The team has ran well with him at the point coming off the bench. Should of waived Nolan Smith instead.

No club in Spain or Greece has an interest in paying Morrison a lot of money.

To make it in today's league you have to be able to do multiple things good...but if you do have a particular skill set then you have to be very proficient at it i.e. steve novak...adam's shot wasn't always consistent..and that's all he could ever really do, so when that's not going well you end up out of the league

He's a white millionaire who was raised middle class if I remember correctly. That most likely means he will never have to work anoter day in his life if he so chooses, as he likely has millions in the bank.

Imma miss the porno star.

I've never been so relieved for Portland to waive players than this before.

Sucks that we never got to see Morrison's full potential. That ACL injury killed his career.
