Portland Trail Blazers training camp invite Adam Morrison is attempting an NBA comeback to prove he's not a quitter.

Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports that Portland Trail Blazers training camp invite Adam Morrison is out to prove to doubters that he's not a quitter following an NBA career that busted out.

If you ask Morrison to explain his comeback, he might say, "It's better than sitting at home," or "I'm just trying to see if I can squeeze a few more pennies out of the round ball." But the truth is, Morrison has a burning desire to give it one more go. Not because he needs the money. Not because he longs for the lifestyle. Not even to prove his haters wrong.

"It would mean a lot to be able to look myself in the mirror and say, 'I did it.'" Morrison said. "But if I don't make it, at least I can look myself in the mirror and say, 'I didn't go out like a sucker,' and walk away knowing that I didn't just give up. Obviously it would mean the world if I made it back. But for me, just being able to look myself in the mirror and know that I'm not a quitter is enough."
