Adam Morrison made a name for himself at Gonzaga University with some impressive showings in the NCAA Tournament. Gonzaga wasn’t known for producing many NBA superstars. Hall of Famer John Stockton is Gonzaga’s most recognizable alum. That didn’t stop Morrison from becoming a National Player of the Year.
His NBA career, unfortunately, didn’t match his time at Gonzaga. Michael Jordan, who has always been infatuated with players who performed well in college, selected Morrison with the number three pick of the 2006 NBA draft for the Charlotte Bobcats. Morrison suffered a severe injury to his left knee and missed the entire 2007-2008 NBA season.
Morrison’s remaining time in the NBA involved being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers and Washington Wizards. Even after attempting a comeback in 2012, Morrison could live up to the high expectations.
