Adam Morrison, former NCAA basketball star, has an apocalypse bunker

Leave a comment

Adam Morrison is apparently preparing for the end of times, according to Gonzaga star Kyle Wiltjer.

Wiltjer is friends with Morrison, a former star at Gonzaga and NBA Draft lottery pick, and joined the Pardon My Take podcast to discuss his time at the University. While on the podcast, the hosts asked if the 23-year-old could compare himself to his friend Morrison or a poor man’s Christian Laettner. Considering the sad choice of options, Wiltjer apparently went with the lesser of two evils, picking a poor man’s Laettner down to the fact that Morrison evidently has an apocalypse bunker.

“The guy is fully equipped if there was an apocalypse,” Wiltjer told the Podcast. “He’s got food stationed away. Everything. He could survive everything. … Yeah, he’s got guns. A bunker. Everything.”

This only adds to the strange post college career of Morrison, who was drafted No. 3 by Michael Jordan’s then-Charlotte Bobcats. Aside from the fact that he never lived up to expectations, he was called out by former teammate Jared Dudley for never taking showers in the NBA.  Morrison’s reasons for having a bunker according to Wiltjer has to do with politics, though he has yet to personally see the apocalyptic shelter.

“He thinks something is going down with politics … He thinks everyone is corrupt.”

One has to imagine that Morrison’s bunker is similar to the one found in the recent movie 10 Cloverfield Lane.

Sports world goes all-in on 2017 solar eclipse

Nick Saban may not have had any interest in checking out today’s much-hyped solar eclipse, but he seems to be the only one in the sports world.

At least according to these epic #SolarEclipse2017 sports Twitter moments.

The NASCAR community was on point with their eclipse celebrations, seriously you’re missing out if you’re not following any of these teams/drivers on Twitter.

But they weren’t the only ones.

Justin Rose, Rickie Fowler, Jason Day and Billy Horschel weren’t the only golfers taking in the views (with proper glasses), Tiger Woods bought into the hype too.

The Rome Braves had their break, but Bartolo Colon watching the eclipse will be your moment of zen.

And remember, if you were truly amazed by #SolarEclipse2017 goalie Ilya Bryzgalov has some more mind-blowing universal knowledge for you.

GILGO BEACH, N.Y. (AP) The son of World Wrestling Entertainment CEO Vince McMahon has been rescued unhurt from a helicopter that made an emergency landing in the ocean waters off New York.

Shane McMahon was the passenger in the Robinson R 44 helicopter that came down in the Atlantic Ocean off Long Island’s Gilgo Beach late Wednesday morning. The red aircraft could be seen bobbing on its bright yellow pontoons as small boats circled.

Shane McMahon is also a WWE executive. His mother is Linda McMahon, who heads the Small Business Administration in President Donald Trump’s White House.

The Federal Aviation Administration says the helicopter had taken off from Westchester County Airport in White Plains. The pilot issued a mayday call before going into the water.

It’s not yet clear what went wrong.
