I think Morrison would have more votes if people could see him play like Redick every night. Redick is great, and at this point I can't even compare him to Langdon, but Morrison is just a crazy combo of tall, fast, and accurate.. He is avg. 29pts and 6rbs and just dropped back to back 40+ games with in college is off the chain..

I just see too much of Jame Plummer in Adam Morrison for me to like :tongue:

I assume you're talking about the pros. As a pro, I'll take Morrison. Much better overall game. If everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, breaks right for Redick, he can be a poor man's Rip Hamilton in the pros or a destitute man's Reggie Miller. More than likely, he's a Dell Curry/Dale Ellis type; come off the bench, light it up from the outside for 20-25 minutes a night and try not to be embarassed on defense. Maybe he can progress to being a Vinnie Johnson type, where he comes off the bench, fills it up from anywhere inside about 25 feet and plays at least competent defense.

Morrison should be a much better pro than that. I refuse to give in to the Larry Bird comparisons, which are primarily based on the fact that Morrison is a talented, white small forward. Bird was an exponentially better passer than Morrison (no shame in that, Bird was probably a better passer than about 99% of the guys who have ever played the game of basketball), as well as a better defender. But Morrison can score from anywhere inside 25 feet and does have a fairly complete game. He certainly seems willing to work on his deficiencies; he's progressed quite a bit as a player. I'm thinking Shawn Marion with less rebounding and explosiveness and a better jump shot. A better comparison escapes me at the moment.

An amazing choker. He scores alot b/c he shoots more than anyone else, his %s are very underwhelming. There's no question he is alot better this year than he has been BUT he is still a choker come crunch time and his %s still are not great. In 3 NCAA Tourney appearances he has been dreadful- look for that to continue and he has NO CHANCE to be a good player in the NBA. He has Europe written all over over him.

Morrison hands down. He gets all involved. Redick tries to do to much to often. Yes he is a great player, but if you watch, his players stop playing and watch him.

Morrison...the Doors were great...lol

Seriously, I think Adam gets the nod here. It's too bad he doesn't get as much airtime as reddick

Morrison from sophmore to junior years have been an amazing leap of a kid getting more mature every year. I think its with out question thats hes gonna leave for the nba draft after this season and honestly from this standpoint if he keeps progressing the comparisons to bird arent far off

I agree, I coach basketball on a travel level for both boys and girls, and I agree Morrison is the more complete player and has a bigger NBA upside.

And while on the level I coach, Redick (Type) would carry me, I much prefer and enjoy coaching a more complete player that makes everyone better.

That's one of my points. The game Duke lost, they all just stood and watched Redick shoot! Redick needs to get the rest of the team more into the game at times.

Morrison easily. He's a more complete player. If it was just on shooting then Redick.

Morrison does have a nice big man in JP Batista.

See, I don't see that kind of game in Morrison. Bird could shoot 2 for 20 from the field and still control the game with his passing, defense and rebounding. Until Morrison can do that, he's just another white guy who gets compared to Bird because he's a white guy.

Maybe im just a huge morrison fan...But i see only 2-3 rookies next year coming out making an impact from day 1

Those guys are

Adam Morrison SF Gonzaga
LeMarcus Aldridge PF Texas
Rudy Gay SF UCONN

I chose Morrison cause he simply reminds me of Bird. Putting aside my anti-duke bias I think he puts the ball on the floor better, is a better defender, and just as good a shooter.

One thing i wouldnt do is dismiss Gonzaga as a no name program though. they have some NBA talent on that roster. And recent history tells us theyve spit out some decent NBA prospects also like Turiaf (prior to his heart condition)

I agree, plus I'd throw in the two Nova seniors Randy Foye & Allen Ray. I love watching them play. Rajon Rondo is the best PG but he's still a year away & needs to stay in school to work on his shooting.
