they are both up for the player of the year award and are both top scorers in the nation. who is better? and who will be good in the NBA?

I pick Redick, I just like him more. I think he will be shooting 3 pointers all over the NBA next year. I know Morrison is probably alot more talented but Redick has a good work ethnic which is why I like him

Rudy Gay is better than, both he just happens to play on the #1 team with 8 NBA type players on it.. I believe he will be the best player at the next level.. Out of Redick and Morrison give me Adam, he is just as good a scorer and better rebounder.. Neither one of them play much D at all.

I keep hearing that Gay is very overrated, don't know about that but thats what I've heard

He is twice as athletic as Morrison or Redick and it just as good if not a better shooter than both.. (.467 3P, .457 FG).. He has not been the best player this year because he is not nearly as assertive as Redick or Morrison, nor does he have to be on UCONN.. He is 6'9 with a sweet stroke, and at times can be decent of defense.. On the break he is unbelievable. Kinda McGrady like with half the heart... Needs time to mature more, remember he is only a So. the other 2 are seniors..

Actually no morrison is a junior bro

I love rudy gay and i love uconn but the kids overhyped. He needs to mature and realize that hes playing D1 ball not a 5 on 5 game at the near by park. When hes actually playing tough he is a top 3 player in the country no doubt, but hes inconsistant on the court. I honestly feel uconn has 3 players better then rudy gay right now

Marcus Williams - Best pg in the country with the exception of Dee Brown maybe
Josh Boone - Also needs to mature, inconsistant but is very dominant when his game is on
Hilton Armstrong - Blocking Machine, nuff said


But dont worry i still got lots of love for rudy gay, and Im hoping he stays after this year to actually prove to the nba scouts he can be consistant and compete for player of the year and help uconn to a national title once again.

All 3 are great shooters, but its a myth to think that Redick is a better shooter than Morrison or Gay, although his range is probably better.. Morrison scores more, but takes many more shots and plays against the likes of Portland and Loyola- Marymount.. Some of his worst game (18 against Uconn), have come against better teams although Mich. State couldn't stop him at all. When Gay gets cold or isn't aggressive enough Uconn, has places to go, the Zags and Duke do not so those guys end up tossing up 20-30 shots a game...

true...gay is surrounded by talent if he was the one man drive on a team then he'd be getting 26-30 ppg easily

The fact of the matter is gay doesnt take many shots, but im just saying hes just way too inconsistant to be mentioned with redick or morrison


Still funny enough Rudy Gay will be picked 1st in this up and coming draft by charlotte...cause the bobcats will take the top player from the national title team...its science :wink:

Redick doesn't take many shots either, you guys forget that Duke has a really good team. Redick isn't the only good player Duke has.

here are the averages of FGA this season:

Redick - 18
Morrison - 18.8

Ferretsquig
03-05-2006, 06:44 PM
Since when is 18 FGA a game not many shots? One thing will never change...Morrison is 6'8, Redick 6'4. Morrison can elevate over any SF in college....put anyone taller on Redick and hes useless.

even tho im a carolina fan i gotta go with redick for NBA, morrison doesnt play defense(neither does redick) and is to soft for a forward in the NBA.

Id be surprised if Reddick can get on the court in the NBA...His defense is horrible.He'll probably be another Steve Alford.

The fact of the matter is reddicks not going to suddenly lose his shot when he enters the nba

He'll be a solid 10 ppg player off the bench at worst...at best the possibilitys could be endless if he adds some muscle

Adam Morrison is just a freakish animal, if he can work on his lousy footwork and sloppy defense could be a all star player for years. I'd love to have him in charlotte next year over anyone but If bickerstaff is still the coach rudy gay is going to be the pick

Rudy Gay just needs to mature and things could get scary from there...Also should add a little bit more muscle a good 10-20 lbs, and try not to lose any athleticism.

so the only reason Morrison is better is because he's taller? I don't think thats enough to say he's better. of course he gets more rebounds than Redick if he's taller. Redick is the better long range shooter and you can't agrue that

Yes you can. Redick has shot 42% from behind the arc this year. Morrison has shot 44%.

Morrison also doesn't choke when his team needs him. The reason most people choose Redick over Morrison is because they haven't seen Morrison play.

both guys are great shooters, why won't they be good in the NBA? they both have NBA type shooting

BTW did you know that both players were invited to Olympic team tryouts?

Shooting 40 or even 45% in college translants to only a decent NBA 3P shooter.. They can still get better, but most of the best shooters in the NBA hit 45% of there 3P's in college.. Neither are great athletes compared to the players at SG and SF in the NBA... Neither have great NBA bodies, although the each could grow into it still.. Redick has much improved in putting the ball on the floor this year, which will help him at the next level.. Redick is fearless, although he isn't very clutch yet.. Morrison dominates bad teams, and has shown a tendancy to be super clutch.. At the next level I will take my chances with a 6'8 SF that can shoot, over a 6'4 SG that can shoot...

I think Morrison is more suited for the NBA than Redick. Morrison has size and savy with the ability to score anywhere on the court. You can't teach that to a player, you must already have it.

:yeahthat:


Also morrison can make any type of shot on the court...dunks, layups, hooks, floaters, 3 pointers...doesnt matter he can do it

All redicks got is the 3 pointer

It's not even close, redick is in his annual March swoon. Big time players step up in big games and JJ does not do that as he disappears during duke's biggest games in March every year. JJ will be out of the NBA in about 3 years so I'll say Morrison will be better though I'm not convinced he'll be a big time player.

this is a easy decison for me..morrison is alot better...he has the height advantage so he also rebounds...redick only shots...he doesnt pick up any assists cause hes a ball hog...u can say morrison is also a ball hog but atleast he rebounds...i actually say morrison #1, Quincy Douby from rutgers #2...he has a 45% shooting while redick is at 41%...and redick #3

I'm almost certain there was a thread about this a month ago. No matter, though.

Morrison's the player of the year, and will be the better pro. Redick's recent fade worries me, though. I think he's playing too many minutes.

OK, the question was, more or less (at least the big debate in the media is) who is the better college player.
