Does this remind you of anybody else?
Here are his current stats as a junior:
38.3 mpg, 28.0 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 1.8 apg, 2.1 to/g, 52.4% fgs, 40.7% 3s, 73.5% fts
How about this former 6'7" collegiate star in the making (as a junior)?
38.3 mpg, 25.9 ppg, 5.3 rpg, 2.4 apg, 2.4 to/g, 55.6% fgs, 43.9% 3s, 88.2% fts
Pretty similar, huh? Morrison puts in a few more points and a few more boards, but with a worse asst/to ratio and worse shooting percentages. But all in all, I'd say it's a damn good comparison.
So who is this mystery player? Well, I only make this comparison because of the idiotic comparisons to Larry Bird and Magic Johnson and any other number of NBA all time greats I've heard Morrison compared to. In fact, this is none other then Reggie Miller at UCLA. Another outstanding 1 trick pony who carried his 1 trick over to the NBA quite well where he was a great shooter for years to come. Never was much with the D and certainly didn't make others around him better, but fun to watch nonetheless. I should note that Miller's 3 pt percentage is actually from his senior season because the 3 pt line wasn't instituted until he was a senior. Safe to say he probably would've shot a similar percentage as a junior.
