The Brooklyn Nets started their mini-camp yesterday, which led to the delicious-but-potentially-quite-misleading images of free-agent-to-be Deron Williams wearing “Brooklyn Basketball” shorts (but not participating). No matter what happens, they’ll always be able to say he wore the Brooklyn colors once. Anyway, the real point of yesterday was for 21 veteran free agents to attempt to peddle their wares for the team, including former Big East Player of the Year Ben Hansbrough, Blake’s brother Taylor Griffin, and Al Thornton. But the big star was former third-overall pick and hoops philosophizer Adam Morrison, who is still sporting the ‘stache and crazy hair. It’s highly unlikely Morrison will make the team, but as far as fan-friendly moves by the incoming organization are concerned, it’s tough to come up with a better, amusing one than having one of the first images of any player in a Brooklyn Nets uniform be of Adam Morrison. It was enough to make a man cry.
Straight outta Bed-Stuy … it’s Adam Morrison!
