Adam Morrison steals… a High Five!

The former 3rd overall pick of the 2006 draft, Adam Morrison, hasn’t gotten much run this season (understandably) for the loaded Lakers, and the time he has gotten, he hasn’t done much but… run.

Well, on Sunday night, Adam Morrison pretty much summed up the entire night for the Lakers’ BENCH (deodorant helps the stench), which scored a season-high 66 points, by intercepting a high-five between Mavericks’ Forward Tim Thomas and his teammate, Kris Humphries.

Check out the 15 second mark for the laughs…

Look at Phil Jackson’s face. That’s the face of a coach that’s secretly saying to himself: “Good gawd, I need to give this man more minutes!” Kind of.

In the end, Adam Morrison’s proven that not every player at the end of the bench have to be utterly useless after all. They can be hilariously useless as well.

Here’s to Adam for cementing himself as one of the league’s most hilariously awkward bench players. Now there’s a true third pick! Oh, and Adam hit all his shots tonight going 3-3 from the field. Take that, AMMO haters.

Adam Morrison sure makes Laker garbage time fun to watch.

    Why you gotta make fun of this funny scene. I mean Ammo is a great guy who has been through so much (torn ACL) and he kinda lost his groove since then and yet you want to bash on him? Plus “Garbage time”? Any time for the Lakers is “Lakers Time” to me. “Garbage” and “Lakers” should never be used in context.
    Go Ammo, do your thing. Hopefully you can produce so the Lakers can keep you. He has had flashes of his former self such as against the Clippers going 4-4 from 3. He just need something to get him going.

    Sorry, but I am pretty sure Adam is not returning next season.
    Nothing against him, but the Lakers do not need his services.

    That was so awkward but I love every member of the Laker team =)

  • jakegasol

    Don’t need his services? If I was Mitch, I;d rather have AMMO for 1-3 mil a season than Vujacic for his salary…. Easily…

  • the ape

    that was hilarious! maybe we can attribute some of his weird play to the fact that he’s not sure what team he’s on? hehe

    but seriously, i was glad ammo went 3-3 for the night. even if he doesn’t come back next year, the dude needs that sort of thing for some self-respect

    That was too funny! you know who he reminds me of with his awkward, shuffly walk and his quirkiness? Phil Jackson! He looks just like Phil as a Knicks player (except for the wild hairdo)

    Just go to show you he is a idiot. What the fuck your a Laker not a Clipper .
    Show some intelligence. You get in the game and do stupid shit you tink P J is going to trust you. ???
    Morrisson is washed up send him to his future job video manager in Seatle someing pot saying I used to play in the NBA. Dude you had a chance but are a ASS .

      What the hell is wrong with you. What he did is nothing compared to Lebron dancing. Come on now, this is nothing. It didnt hurt anyone’s feelings. Now dancing is something else because that can mean that you are dancing cause you are too good and thats all you can do now and that seemed to set off Joakim Noah cause he felt offended.
      What Ammo did is nothing compared to what Lebron did.

        dude is a pot smoking hillbilly. does he look like he belongs on this team ?
        The guy is freakin idiot. ESPN said he was one of the worst players to be picked

        • Fanzus

          And I’d guess that TLN says you’re one of the worst fans

  • trespasser

    man that was funny. love the guy, hope he gets more playing time.

  • ladacos

    I think PJ muttered “Jesus” after that. I don’t mind Ammo’s sense of humor.

    • http://TheLakersNation Marwan..

      It looked like the high 5 was for Ammo and thats what he thought since the Maverick took too long to return it to his teammate so Ammo gave him one in risk of being called a bad sportsman if he didnt. I dont get the big fuss over this though. Not that big of a deal, isnt enough to create controversy so let it go.

  • Gravy

    gotta keep adam….. he’s good for team chemistry!!!!! Besides they won last year and sasha still hasn’t made a shot. Adam is cool!!!

  • laker fan in down ey

    Adam the idiot. Keep him are you stupid.
    His contract is a strain on the payroll.
    Hillbilly go back to Gonzaga and cry about losing
