Adam Morrison — 2009 & 2010 Los Angeles Lakers
Some of us are still waiting for Adam Morrison to be an NBA star. It’s easy to look back and just figure Morrison was a complete bust, and considering he was the number three pick and he started just 28 games in his career, it’s hard to come to any other real conclusion. But Morrison was actually decent enough as a rookie out of Gonzaga, scoring 12 points a game on admittedly terrible shooting numbers before a knee injury cost Morrison his entire sophomore season.
Morrison didn’t make it through the next season in a Bobcats uniform and got sent to the Lakers with Shannon Brown in a 2009 trade deadline move, and it turned out to be quite a stroke of luck for Morrison. He scored only 84 points in two seasons as a Laker, but he just happened to be teammates with Kobe and Pau and that made Adam Morrison a back to back NBA champion.
