I know there is a lot of hating against Morris in the last 12-15 months but I still have a lot of faith in this kid. I mean he is still just 20 years old and has a bright future upon him.

Right now, with Steve Nashs injury, he can prove to the Lakers organisation and the league that he has a game and that he can do something at his position.He hit a solid 3 point against the Pistons and passed the ball around good. I still expect him to grow behin Nash later but right now, with Nashs injury, this could be his big chance to prove himself. What do you think?

Check out this quotes from the lakers homepage:

"Darius Morris got some of the best feet in the league at that spot, so they’re(and Blake) going to have to get up and work the ball,” explained Brown. “Not to get steals, but to see if we can take some time off the clock and try to disjoint our opponent just a little bit – and both guys did that perfectly (against Detroit).”

Well he was correct in assuming that the Detroit game would be somewhat of a 'turning point' for us.

Kobe and dwight are superstars and have proven that. Morris hasn't proven [expletive].

He played good last game and was subpar this game considering steve blake went 2-8 from three in another 36 minutes of playing time... even if Morris played bad (the only thing I didn't like was those horrible switches on randy foye... the first one was a good defense better offense but the second one was just ridiculous) I doubt his 12 minutes of play was that horrible. I understand you don't like him but don't over exaggerate

please stop over exaggerating it's annoying... hopefully when we get sloan our players will start playing better and he will have better rotations but at this rate I don't see Morris staying here after this season.... I still think he can be good but his decision making and execution needs major work I'm just happy he improved his perimeter shooting (excluding tonight's game)

typical one good play followed by 3 bad plays night from him. He really did hurt us tonight because of his ability to fall asleep on defense and not switch correctly.
He just isn't ready.

Sad thing is unless we play Blake 40 minutes, Morris has to be the backup guy since Duhon would be 20 times worse :censored:

i havnt,but Morris doesnt look like an NBA player. he looks like a massive scrub half the time, airballing , and the other half of the time he looks like a decent college player-OC,turning the ball over horribly
