    Dude has two rings for literally sitting on the bench and watching Kobe and friends play the last two years. He basically was paid seven million bucks to have court-side seats and get a few garbage minutes every fourth game or so. Two games with actual playing time during last season's playoffs.

    That is an awesome deal.

    A player named Chuck Nevitt played for the Lakers in the 80's but he only got one ring. He rarely played even though he is 7-5.

    No he's not the luckiest player alive.

    He plays with diabetes and constantly has to take insulin shots on the bench and be under supervision.

    Sasha Vuicic. Now that's the luckiest player alive.

    I would say any Floriday Gator from 2006-2009.

    They got to play with Tim Tebow.

    I remember him from his college days at NC St. I was addicted to ACC hoops in the 80's when the 4 letter network showed every single game.

    I would bet that Morrison would rather be playing and contributing than being a seat warmer who's career has become a joke.

    I'm sure the rings are nice, but I doubt if his career has turned out they way he hoped it would.

    I'm sure it's pretty nice. He'd probably rather be playing, or at least I'd hope he would, but making 7 million dollars and grabbing a couple of rings is pretty nice all the same.

    Yeah all you have to do is blow out your knee and go from being a potential starter to a guy who may not ever play again and lose out on a possible $50 million contract. What a lucky guy.

    Haha...Darko Milicic is probably the biggest bust in NBA history. At least Kwame Brown showed flashes of potential. Milicic is a stiff and was a stiff on his draft footage! :lmao2:

    If he blew out his knee, would anyone be able to tell the difference in his game?

    Pretty good deal....but there are so many just like him (as far as riding the pine and getting a ring) over the years.

    Morrison is great story by himself. But with his thin frame and diabetes, I was suprised Charlotte chose him so high. He sure was fun to watch in college though.
