Adam Morrison: His First Truly Legendary Night in the NBA
This was the night Adam Morrison fans were waiting for. On the road in Minnesota, Adam went scoreless in the first half, then went into the zone and scored 26 points in the second half to lead the Bobcats to victory. 4 or 5 of his baskets would have impressed any NBA player in history. The Charlotte players on the sidelines were going crazy as one after another tough shot dropped. This will make all the sports shows(At least it would have before Dwayne Wade got hurt), but I'll add my personal twist. I called my comedian friend Troy in Florida - one of the many who didn't see the greatness here - and told him about it. The beauty of it all? Troy is a Minnesota guy.
Next I'll call my former band-mate Charlie who plays the National Anthem at various games around Spokane, including for Gonzaga. He was the one who got me to take more than a passing interest in the Zags last year. It's cool when the musician you've known since college is involved in the game.
This is the performance that will convince a lot of doubters around the league. There are many great players, but only a few have this kind of drama - only a few are stars. This was Adam Morrison's first legendary night in the NBA.
