Georgia Tech radio voice Andy Demetra chats with former Tech and NBA star Anthony Morrow
Anthony Morrow went undrafted out of Tech in 2008, made the Golden State Warriors roster, and that year set an NBA record for rookies by scoring 37 points in his first start. He also became the first – and still only – rookie to lead the league in 3-point shooting with a mark of 46.7 percent.
That still ranks second in Golden State history behind B.J. Armstrong’s 47.3 percent in 1995-96, and that and Morrow’s mark of 45.6 percent in 2009-10 rank second and third in franchise annals ahead of Steph Curry’s 45.5 in 2011-12.
Morrow’s two-year 3-point shooting percentage (46.0) with Golden State is No. 1 in franchise history ahead of Brian Cardinal (44.4) and Curry (43.7).
He’s made it work, and so after grossing more than $24 million in the NBA, mostly from the Nets and Thunder, A-Mo drove from his hometown of Charlotte, where he and his fiancé live with three young boys, to Atlanta, where his 10-year-old daughter lives with her mother, and attended Tech’s game with Louisville on Jan. 19.
Morrow finished his Tech career with 1,400 points and remains third all-time in three-point field goals and three-point percentage.
