Oh and Morrison will be Rookie of the Year. He'll be an allstar in no time. Unless his career is sabotaged by people who don't want white guys to be successful.

the neat thing about Morrison is how divided people are about him. On one side you have the "realists" that believe that his negatives will be exaggerated in the NBA, that he's not athletic enough, won't be able to get his shot off, not good enough on defense, etc.
On the other hand you have people that believe his heart and desire is enough to make up for his shortcomings and he'll be able to contribute at any level because he's just a special player.

it's quite an interesting debate

agree. lots of rumours lately on the bobcats taking gay, but i still like more morrison in orange. i think he is a better fit for their needs -scoring, attitude, willingness to take the big shot- than gay, without taking anything away from rudy.

It would definitely help your case if he won the 'ship

Also, Morrison isn't 6'8''. He sat next to me at a grill/restuarant by UCLA when I watching my boys play SA in game 2, and I'm taller than him and I'm about 6'5''
