Default Adam Morrison: Kyle, Wally or Larry

Where will Morrison fit in the NBA:

1. The next Kyle Korver?
2. The next Wally World? or
3. The next Larry Bird?

Discuss.

Somewhere between Korver and Wally. Maybe Wally.

While were comparing Adam Morrison to white players lets add Luke Ridnour, Jerry West, Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki, Shawn Bradeley and Najera (;) )

But seriously, I think Adam Morrison is an unique player. He's not just a spot up shooter like Kyle Korver and I don't think his range is as good as Kyle's either. Wally Sczerbiak is a decent comparison, but I think Morrison is much more creative offensively. As for Larry Bird, there both white, that's where the comparison ends.

Once Morrison plays a season, you are all going to regret this silly comparisons.

Adam will be Adam Morrison.

Not all players are comparable. The best comparison I've seen for him is Glenn "BigDog" Robinson. Think BigDog but not so much into posting up. Has Larry Bird spot up ability, and face up ability. Huge drive too. He will succeed.

Nuff Ced.

If that were true, he'd still be winning championships right now in his late 40s or however old he is.

He has more upside than Wally did, but like Wally, he's not a good defender and he's not a great athlete. There are teams out there who need a player like Morrison on their roster. Charlotte, for example.
