LMAO the hatred for Morris continues


What is your obsession with defending Morris?

Hes not some 2nd round sleeper pick like Manu Ginobli, he lacks consistency, IQ, skill, and even if he keeps working
hard the only thing that is gonna get better is his IQ/court vision so at best he'll be a Luke Walton.

You are gonna defend the guy until he become as good as Luke Walton and then laugh in our faces?

"I told you so!"

I really wish people here wouldn't exaggerate everything all I ever say is that Morris is better than Blake and Duhon and was better than Fisher or Blake last season.... I believe he hasn't adjusted to the NBA style of play and once he does he'll be a serviceable back up... The guy says he wants to be a top PG in the League eventually so he's working hard to stay in the league... My point is that Morris isn't that bad

If he can't even beat Blake for the backup position.....he is no that great.

If Morris was food like a cheese burger you could get away with saying "Morris isn't that bad" because
not everybody has the same taste but we aren't talking food we are talking ball.

Your mind is obviously playing tricks on you, because I'm not seeing it and I'm not the only one.

That's fine he has the height strength and enough ball handling skills to eventually be a good PG it's up to him to actually meet his potential. He's a player who's barely played for the last year. He played the most in the summer league and finally got some minutes in the pistons game which he played well... and he also played well in the Clippers game he has improved his perimeter shooting now he has to work on his decision making and he will be fine

He has had total 21 NBA games. Let that sink in 21 total NBA games. You do realize university of Michigan was in a serious funk for a long while. Then we got D-Mo and several other players (Hardaway comes to mind) and D-Mo was seriously legit set a new single season assist record for the University and was one of the top assist guys in college period. Last year he Played 19 games averaging 4 minutes had no summer league and no training camp. He has been very afraid to do anything for fear of getting yanked. Go and dig up some footage of U of M games with him running the point do yourself that favor, maybe then you will see why it has been said if he stayed in college and not opted out he would have been a top 10 pick and there is no way in hell the Lakers could have gotten him. Some of your ignorance about the players we have is mind blowing. If all you saw of him was his NBA play I could understand your point but man please do some research so you don't look foolish. In any system where the team isn't slow as hell up the court and he actually has the Coaches blessing to break his man down off the dribble Morris is a beast. His college game has not translated to the NBA simply because he is in a very bad position and knows he cannot afford to flub up. He played decently this last game and no one is saying he should start over Nash or even Blake at this time but look at our tempo when he is on the court with the starters .... we went from averaging 0 fast break points (first two or three games) to 7 when he is on the court. We had as a team 0 fast break points until he actually got PT that is sad as all hell. Sometimes I do wish he would have wound up on another team where he would get some serious burn and learn on the fly. Unfortunately the Lakers is no place for rookies I fear for this team when Kobe finally retires. Our "Loyal Fans" believe we will always have vets and will sustain that way when the youth of the NBA is currently kicking the [expletive] out of the vets. You all better wake up.

No real update on @SteveNash (non-displaced leg fracture). He's doing individual, non-contact work outs, but nothing with the team

Your arguments are so flawed it is depressing.

Blake played 40 mins with 3 TOs

Morris played 12 mins with 2 TOs. So if Morris played 40mins like Blaked...he would have 6 to 7 TOs. That is terrible.

Don't ever compare Morris to Kobe in any way again.

Well he played 25 minutes tonight the most he has played all year and only had 1 turnover

One game against one of the most defensively challenged teams in the entire league doesn't mean anything. Let's see if he can keep it up. Consistency is key.

I sure hope not. He is supposed to be re-evaluated on Saturday so hopefully something changes.

PS. I love your sig. :laughing:
