Bernie on Morris tonight


The kid played good tonight. He's still got some packets of sugar that I want him to put in his pockets, but you get better when you get playing time, and he's getting playing time and getting better



Like I said, for our young players, Bernie is perfect to work with them, especially with his old school mentality, in 2 games we've seen Morris play a more measured pace and not as out of control. It's not coincidence.


I really hope him and Ham remain when Phil/D'antoni gets here, it'd be a loss not to have them during the shootarounds and in the locker rooms.

Good job Morris. Everything was good except that 1 heat check. Tony Parker next, and I hope he can stop him too. Thank you Bernie for giving him the majority of the minutes.

it will probably be up on the Lakers website soon :) I saw it on Access Sportsnet on time warner just now :)

Was very real about our problems but he has confidence we'll work them out. He said we played very good, passed the ball around and played more fluid out there and that turnovers are still a problem but they're working on it.



And honestly I kinda feel bad for the guy, he's helping us in all these ways and the fans chant We want Phil and he got reporters asking him about Phil every other day.

Like Dwight said "I loved playing against teams Phil coached but at the same time you gotta give credit to Bernie."

I really think he's being disregarded a lot by the media and by the fans and that's a shame cause he's a valuable asset to us and deserves a little more respect.

That's my opinion though.

That sir is an opinion I completely agree with they should chant "Thank you Bernie." during his last game because he has honestly earned it. I think Phil will probably be there for Tuesdays game and even if he is they should still chant it. Bernie has earned my respect for how he has handled the media this situation and our basketball team.

Agree too. Main thing I take from his coaching is he coaches like he trusts the team and when he gives players the reigns they really have them, he steps in if he sees problems but he doesn't over coach, and as a result I notice even when we go through our cold stretches we finish the games stronger, like tonight, we started slow in the 3rd, then finished it strong and then continued momentum in the 4th after we got back on track.

in other news the Heat got blown out 86 to 104 by the Grizzlies tonight.

Well its tough to give him credit now, even though i like his simplicity that made the team breathe. The thing is,These wins might be as a reactionary wins , especially that MB was too detailed that the players were uncomfortable(Princeton?). But i still believe his school of thoughts were perfect for this team , especially under these circumstances.

Yeah Bernie would probably take this team much further than Brown because he seems to trust the players. His old school approach and confidence in the players is probably refreshing for them. By simplifying things he has really let them be themselves and use their talents alot more. While the defence and mistakes haven't improved greatly the offense has looked so much better. We have blown out teams we should and held both under 100 while scoring 100. I also think the players respect him more than Brown. Although it's only 2 games Bernie has done a much better job than Brown this year. Sad but true as the results attest.

Ron said it best. Bernie has a "different coaching style" and I think that is a factor.

See Brown was extremely hard working and very intelligent but at the same time he had a tendency to overcoach. The truth is Brown's style of coaching is PERFECT for a younger team learning the ropes, like a Bobcats or a Hornets or even like a Cavs. Because young talent sometimes needs that. But on a team of veterans it sort of caused them to overthink because they probably aren't used to being coached in that way so it takes adjusting.

Bernie on the other hand teaches the same principles that Brown was teaching but he does it in a way that gives them a little more freedom and lets the vets be vets, he is tough on the young players but lets the vets be vets and we see how they respond to it. Their play looks more "natural". Flaws are still there but they aren't overthinking. So he'll basically do what Brown was trying to do but better, which makes perfect sense because he's the one that mentored Brown so he probably has a better idea how to deal with this situation(this is probably a reason Brown brought him as well).

Bernie said perfectly when he said "Our problems if you constantly talk about them over and over again then the reaction can sometimes be to go the other way, so what's best for us is to shut up about it and work on it because we already know it's there."

And it's working. Whereas Bernie would work on it from the shadows and step in when he feels there's too big a gap of non improvement, Brown would try to analyze everything down to a science when he really didn't need to. It's why he's such a hard worker but that style works better with a younger team than a veteran team imo. Bernie is the prime example of it.

Not surprised. Memphis mixes athletic wings and a strong front court which leaves Miami with no answer. Thats why last season, we were concerned about meeting them in the first round.

On topic, looking forward to seeing Morris continue his growth. Nice to see him get support from both Kobe and Bernie as well.

Looks like Darius is starting on Tuesday and Duhon is going to get some burn because of Blake's injury.

I know Darius is not even close to being Kobe, and never will be a Kobe, but seems just like how Kobe got noticed in the Pros. Kobe averaged 4-5 points a game in his rookie season, so he was a non-factor for the team, like Morris. The next year starter Eddie Jones gets injured and Kobe plays instead of him, impressing and averaging 18 points a game that season. Nash is injured, and so Morris is getting some burn, which hes playing pretty good, and has a chance to play even more minutes, now that Blake is hurt and might miss next game. They both had fros, and both are pretty athletic (Kobe more though). I hope no one takes this like I'm saying Morris is Kobe.

Haha yeah. Every single game he played I think he made atleast 1. It's the same exact spot, assisted by the same person.
