2006 NBA lottery pick Adam Morrison signed up with Crvena Zvezda of the Serbian league less than a month ago, but he's wasted no time in making a strong first impressions mark. In a game against Germany's Bayern Munich, Morrison got into a tussle with Bogdan Radosavlejevic that led to his eventual ejection, much to the crowd's delight.
Following a missed Crvena Zvezda jumper, the two players got caught up on each other going for the rebound, and as they came back down the court, both took exception to the other's excessive contact. The two then faced off chest to chest, with Radosavlejevic shoving Morrison hard with both hands into his body. Morrison fell backwards slightly but caught himself, and eventually had to be restrained by both a teammate and a referee. Both he and Radosavlejevic were escorted from the court and, as Morrison departed, he was saluted by his teammates and cheered on by the home fans.
Via Sportando.net, here's the video of Adam Morrison getting ejected in Serbia after a tussle uploaded by YouTube user MrRedStarBelgrade.
Morrison lasted just three seasons in the NBA due to a knee injury and the fact that he couldn't guard anyone. The No. 3 overall pick by the Charlotte Bobcats out of Gonzaga, he also played for the Los Angeles Lakers, posting career averages of 7.5 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 20.4 minutes per game.
