duhon is garbage but blake is better than morris right now. there is a reason blake has gotten more minutes than morris, much like there is a reason the lakers were able to draft morris.
morris may just be better one day but he has shown nothing that indicates his readiness to compete at this level.
im fine with him becoming the backup and hope he can improve, but he has to earn it first.
he isnt going to get minutes just because. the lakers cant afford to do that with an inexperienced player right now unless he shows something
One thing i saw from Morris that I didn't see with Duhon, is that despite what everyone calls on Morris in terms of his overdribbling at times, he actually moved the ball and set people up in that weak lineup last night, they just couldn't seal the deal. If Reeves had made his layups..yes layups.. and Morris had finished with 3 assists would we be saying anything?
When Duhon was out there.. I didn't see much of that, there was a lot of standing still and late in the shotclock kind of shots where the offense didn't move at all. By those accounts I'd say Morris looked better. I'm not saying he's "ready" but he sure as heck looked like he knew more of what he was doing out there than Duhon did. That may not say much cause it was Duhon, but still, he didn't seem as "bad" as everyone is trying to act like. He was out there with a weak lineup and he penetrated well and found some guys off nice passes that didn't convert eventhough they were point blank.
So no I don't think Morris is ready but he wasn't by any means terrible last night imo.
