Adam Morrison, last seen looking like an extra on the set of Half Baked 2 while trying out for the Nets, is giving the NBA one final shot: He’s trying out for the Portland Trailblazers and if that fails … the 28-year-old former No. 3 pick in the NBA draft is quitting basketball according to Comcast Sports Net:
Morrison, 28, told CSNNW.com that if he didn’t make the Trail Blazers’ regular season roster, he has plans to end his professional playing career and start a new one.
“I’m going to finish school and start coaching (If he didn’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.”
We’ll always have March, Adam. Morrison will be forever linked to Gus Johnson, madness, and tears. [CSNNW.com]
