“It was just such an extra responsibility to have to always monitor that during games and practices,” says Matt Carroll, a friend of Morrison’s and former Charlotte Bobcats teammate. “Some days you could see he just didn’t have it.” “To be honest, it [diabetes] was harder to manage in the NBA than I thought it would be,” Morrison says. “And overseas”—where Morrison says it was often more difficult for him to procure his medication— “it got worse.”
The Charlotte Bobcats are defining Matt Carroll’s role with the team and bringing Muggsy Bogues back into the fold. A couple of months ago I reported Carroll, who played 7 ½ of his 10 NBA seasons as a Bobcat, was joining the organization. The franchise didn’t initially define his role. The Bobcats are now calling Carroll a “team ambassador” with a variety of roles. He’s started doing radio color analysis on home games (long overdue Scott Lauer got someone to interact with). Carroll will also serve a variety of community-relations roles with the team.
Matt Carroll liked wearing a blue 76ers practice shirt. And he looked good in it. Carroll, a 10-year NBA player, sported a Sixers shirt while he helped Sixers coach Brett Brown, who coached him with the Spurs as a rookie, during training camp that ended Wednesday at St. Joseph’s. Carroll, 33, contacted Brown after deciding to retire and Brown invited him to Philadelphia. “I’ve been enjoying it,” said Carroll, a Hatboro-Horsham High graduate. “It’s been a great experience with the Sixers and having a chance to work with a lot of young players (including former Temple standout Khalif Wyatt) and learning from Brett and the rest of his coaching staff.”
