Six years after being tabbed a franchise cornerstone in Charlotte, Adam Morrison looks dramatically different playing a secondary role for Brooklyn in the summer league. The mustache is gone, and so is his luster after a remarkable career at Gonzaga, a high-scoring tenure that encouraged the Bobcats to take him third overall in the draft.
What Morrison is now is another on the list of Michael Jordan’s draft mistakes. He was never an impact player for the Bobcats, after some considered him a Larry Bird type because of his length and shooting ability. That was a lot of pressure, especially after Morrison blew out his left knee following his rookie season.
