I'm so glad Adam Morrison got a haircut....

And I'm not some stuck-in-the-1950s prude, either. I just think this will be good for Morrison -- he's healthy now, he needs to become a better player, he needs people to basically forget the first part of his NBA career and so on.

If you haven't read Rick Bonnell's "Inside the NBA" blog about this, you need to just for Jared Dudley's great line about Morrison's new look.
Morrison was prone to some serious bad hair days with the long stuff (see picture on the left). I know it worked at Gonzaga, but that was a long time ago now.

This isn't like Samson from the Bible; Morrison had already lost much of his power before he cut his hair. So who knows? Maybe this new look (see picture at right) will return some of them to him and make him play better. Here's an idea: Morrison needs to remember that it's OK to constantly move without the ball and that it's also OK to slash and get fouled occasionally like he did at Gonzaga, not just to hang out at the 3-point line and hope.

I still think the Bobcats should trade Morrison if they can get anything of value (and maybe this will subconsciously help other NBA teams view his value a little differently, who knows?) But in the meantime, the haircut this was a good move for a guy who needs a fresh start.

You know what was the weirdest thing about this? I went with my buddy Mike Persinger, The Observer's sports editor, to the Bobcats' open practice Monday. Mike mentioned off-handedly to me he thought Morrison should cut his hair, basically for the exact reasons outlined above.

Voila -- Morrison does it less than 24 hours later. Was this a weird coincidence or some incredible form of mind control that Mike has also been practicing upon me all these years without me EVEN KNOWING IT?

Hey, Halloween is coming up ... You be the judge.

Jesus dude, he averaged 12 points a game as a rookie, then he got hurt, and you're making it sounds like he's a Kwayme Brown or Darko draft bust.

This ass clown has no value. Trade him for a hot dog and three beers, and you'll have to throw in extra cash.

I am so glad he got that mop cut. Maybe it'll look like we have a new player out there. Btw people, this is an OPINION column, chill out.

So, you terminate the Q&A column, when people all over the country (and world) inquired about the Panthers for what? To post a blog to talk about hairstyles? A Bobcat players hair? Jeez. Bring the Q&A back!

I like the new Scott Says column, but I've been wondering the same thing as W. Where is the Q and A? Was it simply just too much extra work (which I could understand considering how immensely popular it was), or are you still doing it and I just can't find it anymore?

Thanks, guys for the comments... Re: the Q and A... Yes, bottom line, it was a time issue. It had evolved into a 90-percent Panthers Q and A, and the "Inside the Panthers" blog has now started answering questions pretty regularly, so my editors and I felt it was a bit of overkill... Also, once the "Scott Says" blog began, it started to get about 8-10 times the number of "hits" compared to what the Q and A did -- immediately. So we toe-tagged the Q and A. However, I am happy to try and answer questions on a 1-on-1 basis in the "comments" section of this blog or by individual e-mail at sfowler@charlotteobserver.com. Thanks to yall for reading... scott
