The Washington Post’s Michael Lee reported this afternoon that the Washington Wizards have cut Adam “AdMo” Morrison and Sean Marks, the Kiwi. This is a tribute to each of them.
Sean, we hardly knew ya … mainly because you didn’t play in any of the preseason games and sat out a good chunk of training camp with hamstring injury (and don’t worry, I know you weren’t faking). You kinda/sorta played in the Wizards’ Midnight Madness event … well, at least I have a picture where you appear to be on the court. Here’s you observing John Wall in transition …
Sean, you talked to me about the trip you and your family took back to your motherland, New Zealand, this summer. And for that, I thank you. Best of luck to you mate, or bloke, or whatever you Kiwis say (I think it’s bloke).
Adam, oh my sweet, sweet Adam. D.C. has a section of the city called Adams Morgan, also called AdMo. Your name is Adam Morrison and I liked to call you AdMo. Can’t you see the deep connection that we had?
Well, that and you are the player who most resembles an actual Wizard who has ever been associated with the franchise. Some say Popeye Jones looked like a wizard. I say he looked like a wizard’s assistant.
AdMo, you hit 7-16 shots from the field, 2-5 from three point land and all four of your free-throw attempts over four preseason games. You also let Carlos Delfino singe that hair glued to your face and your defense via mad ball screens. So there’s that.
You’ll leave me with the lasting memory of you being you … which is wearing a regular ol’ blue polo from the Ritz-Carlton Phoenix after one of the Wizards’ two home preseason games. Don’t stop believin’ AdMo AdBro Morrison.
