More praise for Bobcat rookie


Mike Brown, head coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers, is an Adam Morrison fan.

Morrison had 13 points in the Bobcats' recent win over Cleveland, and, according to an Associated Press story, had a huge hand in limiting LeBron James to 16 points – though a basketball person whose opinion I respect watched the game and didn't see it that way.

Brown had this to say in the Plain Dealer story: "He's fun to watch," Cavs coach Mike Brown said of Morrison. "He has a chance to be a special player. He's tough. He's long. What he has is a confidence within himself, a cockiness. He knows he's going to be good. He's not afraid. With his shooting range, he has a chance to be dangerous."
