A few more topics addressed by Adam Morrison that weren't included in Sunday's article.
Good morning. I can't remember a more enjoyable 22-minute interview than the one I conducted with ex-Zag great Adam Morrison earlier this week. Morrison, 29, is back at GU to finish his degree and help as a student assistant.
Morrison was candid, colorful, self-depracating and insightful. If you come in with a preconceived notion — I didn't, I interviewed him in 2008 when he was coming back from a torn ACL (I cut-and-paste that article below) — it won't match up with reality.
Now, he'll freely admit doing interviews isn't his idea of fun. At one point former Zag and current administrative assistant Alex Hernandez noticed Morrison being interviewed, prompting Morrison to crack, “Hi Al, back at it man, I avoided it for two years!”
Turning more serious, Morrison said, “I'm very private but I understand how it is. To me it's about these kids now. I'm just a student assistant, that's all I am.”
Here's a link to my article on Morrison.
I covered a lot of ground with Morrison, some of which didn't make the article. I'll post more of Morrison's thoughts on a variety of topics, including what he thinks of the 2013-14 Zags, later tonight.

Adam Morrison didn’t get any playing time for the Lakers against the Celtics in the NBA finals, but he’ll collect his second championship ring and true immortality — his picture (look for No. 6), in a team photo, on a special-edition box of Wheaties.
