Turnovers, Pacers unravel Morrison’s first NBA day


There are a few stories out there covering the Charlotte Bobcats first game this season – and Adam Morrison's first real professional contest – so let's go right to them.

We'll start with the Charlotte Observer and Rick Bonnell's game story in which Morrison isn't mentioned at all. The Bobcats' 22 turnovers play a big part, however, and rightfully so.

The reason Morrison isn't featured prominently in the game story? Probably because there is a column from Scott Fowler that is just about Morrison – and how his 41-footer to end the first quarter was all about hope for the franchise's future.

The present isn't all that grand, especially financially, as the opener wasn't even a sellout, coming up about 500 short.

And, if you want pictures of Morrison, you'll find one on the Observer's slide show.

There is also this game story from the Rocky Mount Telegram.

UPDATE: November is diabetes awareness month - the month after Halloween seems like a good choice - and Morrison is stepping forward to advocate better diabetes management. As this press release outlines, Morrison is teaming with a company that makes blood glucose monitors on a web site about diabetes.
