Adam Morrison Regaining Confidence, Career
Said Don MacLean, the all-time leading scorer at UCLA who has trained Morrison since the summer leading into the draft: “It looked like the guy I met two weeks after his college season ended — kicking ass and taking names and talking s— and all that stuff that made him so good.”
Added his agent, Mark Bartelstein: “It was almost like an exorcism, like something had been taken out of his soul. To watch him play with that chip on his shoulder, with that fervor, and angry like he played at Gonzaga, it’s just great to see it. It’s like the guy is back.”
It happened on Oct. 6 in Belgrade, where the famously maniacal group of Red Star fans were fawning over Morrison. They’re stomping, shouting, celebrating his swagger and this ejection as if it were a buzzer-beater to finish off Bayern Munich in the so-called “friendly” match.
