When you are doing your dribbling for the Raleigh Bullfrogs, who are not a science experiment, you are beginning to think about a day job, right?"No way," Mike Morrison said. "I plan on playing basketball another 15 years."When you are spending your summer sinking jumpers for the Erie Wave, which is not a dance step, your next step is selling insurance, right?"Very wrong," Kurk Lee said. "I'm 24 years old and playing ball and making good money. Why would I want to stop?"When you have worn the uniforms of 18 teams in six leagues in three countries, as have Morrison and Lee since leaving Loyola and Towson State, it is just about time to become an adult, right?

Mike Morrison knows all about the numbers game in the National Basketball Association. The 6-foot-5 guard from Loyola College has fallen victim to it with the Phoenix Suns and Washington Bullets.Last month, the Suns decided Morrison was expendable because of a surplus of guards and traded him to the Bullets, who released him Monday for the same reason."They [the Bullets] said it was a numbers game," Morrison said yesterday from his parents' home in Washington. "It was a situation where they had a lot of people for one position, and they thought it would be to my best interest to find another place."

When Mike Morrison goes to work tomorrow morning in preseason camp with the Bullets, he'll be smiling."The Suns could have let me go through the training camp and then waived me early in the season," said the former Loyola College star. "They could have left me out there on my own, but they didn't. They worked something out and I couldn't be happier, being with the Bullets."The Bullets are still trying to sign shooting guard Ledell Eackles, who is demanding an $8 million contract. With Eackles unsigned and unproven as a starter, the Bullets are looking at every option.
