Adam Morrison Watch: Day 15 (plus: why Charley Rosen is tragically hypocritical)

Two good games for Morrison: first, in a loss to New Orleans, Glendive's favorite son scored a career high 21.

Second, tonight Morrison led all scorers with 27 in a surprising victory over the Spurs.

Incidentally, I finally figured out why Charley Rosen's trash talk about Redick and Morrison is ironic at best, hypocritical at worst. Rosen had opined:
Like Redick, Morrison had enough stuff to excel in a boys' game, but the NBA is for men only (except for an occasional man-child like LeBron). Like Redick, Morrison's off-the-ball movement and bull's-eye shooting versus largely inferior and dull-witted opponents was sufficient to make him an "all-everything."
Let's go to tape:
Rosen played for Hunter College from 1959-62, where he set school records for scoring and rebounding, and was voted team MVP all three years. He went on to play for the U.S. Maccabiah team in 1961, for Camden and Scranton in the Eastern League (a forerunner of the Continental Basketball Association) in 1962, and was a member of the bronze-medal-winning team in the World Senior Games in 1994. Rosen coached in the minor-league Continental Basketball Association for nine years and was the head coach of the women's team at the State University of New York at New Paltz. He lives in Woodstock, NY.
Can't see "NBA" anywhere in there. Bitter, Charley?
