Morris Peterson deserves congratulations for his upcoming induction into the Michigan State Spartans Athletics Hall of Fame, and that should be a moment to be quite proud of for the former Spartan forward. Peterson was on the 2000 title winning Spartans squad that I believe included Paul Pierce, but could be wrong about that. Peterson’s number was retired by the Spartans back in 2009, so this is not the first honor that the program has bestowed upon their former beloved player. His college career was quite illustrious so it is not surprising at all that this is happening.
Much thanks to the Toronto Raptors twitter feed for alerting me to Peterson’s upcoming event. You can check out the full piece below if you like.

When Peterson was with the Raptors he was named to the first team All rookie squad, and he was quite a popular player during his time there. He has been out of the league for about two years now, but as you can tell he is deeply beloved by both Raptors and Spartans fans. The Raptors wish they had a player as dynamic as Peterson currently on the team, but then again maybe not because that would get in the way of tanking for Andrew Wiggins. Oh well, at least Raptors’ fans have this to cheer about in the next week, because it is not going to be a pretty season. Congrats again to Peterson and here is hoping that everything goes splendidly on Thursday.
