The Zags beat Mich. State 109 - 106. Anybody watching the game care to share what they saw? especially in Adam Morrison.

I'm rooting for the Zags to reach the Final Four at least this year. The game went on to three OTs. I'm interested to know about his clutchness.

he wil lnot be able to guard anyone in the pros and will give up as much as he scores..

plus thoughs midrange shots he gets off in college wil lget blocked in the pros..

hes maybe a slightly better version of luke jackson..

He's a smart kid who just knows the game. He didn't have a problem getting shots off against any superior athletes of the collegiate level, I don't know why the pros would be any different.

Besides, being slow seems to work well for a number of NBA players.

I don't know why people keep brining this up with slow college guys. Apparently many of you haven't noticed - a lot the guys in the NBA don't play defense, and even if they do, usually it isn't good defense. Morrison's better than Luke Jackson.

Compare him to Carmelo Anthony before Luke Jackson. Melo is not the greatest athlete... but he knows how to score mid and in. Luke Jackson does not possess these traits.

oh wait... my comparison is invalid because you can only compare white players to other white players.

exactly

Morrion ≠ Larry Bird... therefore, he is nothing like any other player to ever play in the NBA :)

I was thinking the same thing. I found it hard though to compare his game to a black player. His game just does't really remind me of any black player. I think Melo is a lot more athletic though. The only player I could think of is a better Wally Sczerbiak who can create his own shot when being guarded by certain players. IMHO, he won't be as bad as Luke Jackson , but he won't be any better than Mike Miller (who I think is a better player). However, Morrison is good player and will be a good 2nd-3rd option for a team.

Yep, that's exactly the rule. And if you can compare a player to another player who went to the same College or came from the same country, then the comparison is infallible. You know, like Hasan Adams = Andre Iguodala or Carlos Delfino = Manu.

Don't forget the wonderful comparison of Jerome Moiso and Petro

Adam Morrison has always been a player to play bigger when the games get bigger, and last night was just another example. I watch pretty much every Gonzaga game and he constantly impresses me with how clutch he is. I think he intentionally makes himself look like he doesn't belong on the court to add to his clutch play.

This is what I was thinking. He has a great knack for the game, but I think he'll be a step slow. I'll have to see some more. He is not quite the perimeter threat Jackson was. Different players. Not nearly as athletic as Melo. He surprises me all the time with his athletic ability.

Wally Szczerbiak was a first team all-American too and I don't know if Morrison was better than him.

Wally World scored 49 points in the first round of the NCAA tournament and his team only had 61 points and they won over Washington in 1999.

I think people forget how good some of the guys were in college.
