Jared Dudley: Adam Morrison “never took showers”


Jared Dudley remains one of the best interviews in the NBA. Easily. You can talk Xs and Os with him about the game, or just random topics, and he’ll be honest — he was the guy that said most players don’t want to play with Kobe Bryant, and he called Carmelo Anthony the most overrated player in the NBA (then apologized).

Dudley was on the Grant and Danny Show on 106.7 The Fan in our nation’s capital and they started to throw random questions about former teammates at him, and then got to: Who is the worst dressed, most disgusting teammate he had.

“Adam Morrison. Remember Adam Morrison? He never took showers, he did the chewing tobacco that he spit all the time, and he wore the same three polos the whole year. This is a guy who made a lot of money, too, at that time. He was the face of diabetes, he was doing everything, he was on the cover of college games, he was [everywhere], and he was by far the worst and [most] disgusting.”

Is this really a surprise?

Dudley and Morrison were teammates on the 2008 Bobcats, and some things stick with you a while. Like that smell.
