    Adam Morrison Unwanted by Ainge Why?

     Game after game Morrison played great basketball this summer but never got a phone call from Danny Ainge,not Dannys style of player?  yet Morrison ate up his Celtic draft picks.

    Morrison was the MVP in College basketball but has to go begging for a job in the NBA . Why??  He also plays good D and is a great team player,but Doc and Danny never even mention him.

    Very Sad

    Like most great American white players he will have to go play overseas.

    Take care Run

    Adam Morrison does not play defense. He's a terrible athlete. Pure scoring might make you good enough for the 15th spot on a roster and not much else. The Celtics don't have a role for him. They're loaded at SG with Avery Bradley, Jason Terry, and Courtney Lee. I like the Celtics roster, as currently constituted. Unfortunately for us, the Lakers are simply too good (on paper) to lose. They may not have our depth, but four of their five starters are the same or better than our starters (C Howard > Garnett, PF Gasol >> Bass, SF Peace < Pierce, PG Rondo = Nash, SG Bryant >> Bradley).

    runrunandrun,

     "Like most great American white players he will have to go play overseas.'

      Since the late 1950's the American white Basketball player has been on a collision course with extinction.  For example, in 1957-58, Russells first full year with the Celts, white American players dominated the nba. The top 48 players (8 teams x 6 players from each team) with the most minutes played for the year resulted in 42 whites (88%) and 6 blacks. 37 of the 48 players were under 6'8" and of those 37,  34 were white for 92%.  I charted the under 6'8" players because for the most part they represent the speed and quickness positions. From that point until 1979-80 it was a rather rapid switch over to a black league. In the past 30 years the decline of American white players in the league has reached the point that in 2010-11 the figues for American white players were as follows.

        Based on most minutes played by 180 players(30 teams x 6 players per team) 10 of the players were american white (6%).  96 of the 180 players were under 6'8" and of those 96 only 4 were American white for 4%.  From 92% domination to 4% and near extinction.
       Perhaps its time to except the fact of black dominance in the game of basketball and realize that the "good old days" of white dominace during your youth are a thing of the distant pass. By the way, as a 80 year old I had the good fortune to be 18 when Cousy played his 1st game for the Celts in 1950, so I'm pretty well versed when it comes to American white basketball of the 50's and 60's.

    nutter,

    Morrison can play D as well as any forward on the C's, Bass and Sullinger are allot slower then Adam . It is all stereotype white guys can't jump white guys can't play defense,it is all bull. Look at the Gold metal game little Spain almost beat our very best players. Gasol ate up the Americans with 25 points yet he is soft  right?

    How do you know Adam dosn't play defense?  You don't know your just living in the past. White guys can play defense look no further the the Olympics games. White guys almost beat our very best players,how if they can't play D??

    Morrison ate up the C's best summer league players,look at the box scores,he was unstoppable period. Defense is overrated , players that can;t play the game play defense.

    Wake up Morrison is a great player and you know it.

    Seems to me your fudging the numbers,  39% of the NBA players are white ,you somehow forgot international players ???

    Why have international white players and teams won more World and Olympic games then American teams the last 25 years??

    The only reason black players dominate the rosters in the NBA is because the game is fixed. David Stern has turned the NBA into World Wrestling. It is all show,dunks, one on one star ball,no team basketball. Games are slow down 80-76 low scoring style.

     Watching the NBA is like watching the Harlem Globe-trotters ,fake. Example is travels and palming the ball not called. Rondos one move is illegal as he palms the ball every time.

    If black players are so superior how come little countries like Lithuania and Spain almost beat our best players??

    Morrison has never found a home or playing time in the NBA because no one thinks that he is good enough.  Pretty simple at this point.

    The Celtics have scouts and video tape available to study guys like Morrison just like every other team has.

    I cannot see why the Celtics would want to take a roster space for a guy who would likely not dress for most games.  He certainly will not fill the one need I see the Celtics have at the moment-a big, rebounding type center.

    So Boston couldn't use a 6-8 great shooting former college player of the year who scored 25 points against there best draft picks???

    Hi SeemsToMe

      As an old timer you should be upset with the New NBA. The game has been changed to excite the uneducated fans. Have you been to a NBA game, I have to see at least 10 games a year at the garden  on business and the games are all about show.

     Players are allowed to Travel 3 steps now, players are allowed to palm the ball-see Rondo. The old school passing and fast break are gone. New school players wear their shorts below the knee's ,remember our short shorts?

     All I'm saying is if a player like Morrison can't make the C's who can? The man was voted best college player number 1. The man is 6-8 and shoots great and plays good D and team ball, but he dosn't dunk well.

     The game has become ugly and defensive goons dominate the game. We could end all that by calling the game close and favoring offensive players over defensive goons.

    I agree Run, There is a long line of teams waiting to pick up Morrison. The C's shouldn't wait too long to get this guy or he will be gobbled up by someone else. More than likely it will be overseas since he isn't good enough for the NBA. are you really this blind or just plain racist? Teams that run, mainly lose. The game has changed, if u don't change with it you lose.  Notice the NFL has turned to a passing game and runners are not what they used to be.  You are a tool.
