Adam Morrison did an interview with a Las Vegas reporter on the eve of the Lakers’ summer-league opener tonight against the Toronto Raptors at Cox Pavilion on the UNLV campus. Tipoff is 5 p.m. Here are a couple of interesting quotes from the story:
“I think (about it) a little bit,” Morrison said of his future in the NBA. “Having not played much last year, I have to see if I can fit in. I don’t think I’m starting over necessarily. I still have confidence in myself. My knee feels pretty good right now, and I’m as close to 100 percent as I can get. I’m trying to learn the triangle (offense) and go out and play. I’m going to use the summer league as a positive.”
Morrison missed all of the 2007-08 season after tearing a knee ligament and played only eight games with the Lakers after they acquired him and Shannon Brown from the Charlotte Bobcats on Feb. 7. This could be a make or break season for Morrison.
