Start Morrison. Find ways to get him the ball in good positions. Let him shoot from anywhere. He will help you win more than you will lose.

I don't for the life of me understand why the guys on the Bobcats arn't getting Morrison the ball much??? He's a proven shooter and when givin the chance he usually lights it up. He'll only get way way better too! He's a ROOKIE and ROOKIES usually suck so he's not doing that bad really! I hear way too much criticism on Adam and to me. it's way too early in his career for any of that! Give the guy a fair chance! You'll all have to admit 1 thing 4 sure and that's that he does have a lot of potential! Just wait until he really gets comfortable! He'll be an all-star I'm pretty sure he only has to get the bugs and butterflies out!

Morrison seems a LOT more effective when he takes the ball to the basket. The games when he has more than five or six free throws, he scores big, he rebounds and he gets assists. This isn't my imagination... look at the box scores. When he settles for the outside jumper all night he makes himself easier to guard and he limits himself as far as involvement. Besides, the threat of him driving will open his outside opportunities. Take it to the rack Adam!

you guys don't know what your talking about. adam morrison shoot's in the high 30's in fg% and leads the team in attempt's for the season and doesn't even start. okafor shoot's 53% from the field and is third on the team in attempts 472 behind morrison 566, felton 512(38% fg). felton needs to stop shooting and get the ball into okafor and the bobcat's will start to win more consistently. there's a reason adam m. isn't starting and it's because he shoot's to much and isn't a team player.
i'll gladly take okafor off your hands if you think morrison is the future of the team. trade him to the celtics. we've got kendrick perkins and telfair to give you.

tyler i agree with you to a point. Okafor needs a few more shots a game . the LAST 5 OR SIX GAMES Wallace and Okafor has had more shots.
Felton would have a better field goal per if he didnt have to shot so many bail out shots.
Morrison is a rookie and is adjusting to the NBA game . He started out pressing but the last few weeks hes starting to get ajusted once he gets ajusted he will be a big asset to the team.
