L.A. Times: Adam Morrison has made his peace with the player he is and the one he believes he still can become.
Others have heaped criticism on Morrison, 24, for not living up to the immense expectations placed on him when Charlotte Bobcats co-owner Michael Jordan selected him as the third overall pick in the 2006 NBA draft.
Not long ago, Morrison was one of the biggest stars in college, leading the nation in scoring with 28.1 points a game for Gonzaga.
In his first season with the Bobcats, Morrison had the look of a talented player when he averaged 11.8 points and was named to the NBA’s All-Rookie second team. Then Morrison tore his anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee during a 2007 exhibition against the Lakers and missed all of last season.
Morrison has heard plenty about how he was a great college player, but he has yet to deliver in the pros.
“I think some of it’s fair to say,” Morrison said. “But then some of it is not. This is [really] my second season. I came off an ACL surgery. My career is not . . . close to being over.”
