Morris did good tonight, but Blake SHOULD get first crack at the backup spot. For those who think Blake is absolute trash and Morris is hands down the better player, Morris should have no problem retaking the backup spot when Blake comes back right?

When Nash and Blake come back he's going back to the bench..... MDT loves Nash and Blake I wish things could have been different but that's the harsh reality of what's going to happen

Morris was 2/3 from 3 tonight and he had 6 assists his last game and you still put Blake over Morris.... Right now your a hater point blank period while everybody gives him props you throw dirt on the lil compliment you give him(even if you consider it one)

If I was a hater, I'd say his two good games (like I said, I only saw five minutes or so of the game tonight, one play where he passed to Dwight for a dunk) doesn't mean jack, and I'd say there's no way he should play over Blake.

I gave him props for the last game in my last post, with his six assists. Looking at his numbers tonight, and not watching 45 minutes of the game yet, it looks like he played well.

Shut up, you little dork. Continue to call me a hater, and you won't be able to post it (or anything) ever again. Trust me. Step out on the ledge if you want a dropkick off of it.

He did look good. There was a couple of times he did overdribble but I can only remember one or two plays where he did it. Seems like Bernie really has worked on taking sugar out of his game and Nash has taught him how to slow his game down(which Morris talked about) so he did look good tonight.

Hopefully you get to see the game and hopefully Morris continues to play at this level.

One thing's for sure he's looking a LOT more confident than before.

Yeah, I decided to go ahead and watch the game now, instead of waiting until the morning. He's actually looking over each set (even though we really don't run anything in particular yet), which is something all PG's need to do before they get 20+ minutes in the league.

Don't care much for him playing off the ball right now, but I expect that will be a big problem throughout his career. He's a PG that has to have the ball in his hands, as a slasher or a facilitator...so we may see him and Gasol having it out a few times, if Pau runs with that second unit (then again, Pau never talks like that to anyone, lol).

Been saying this system would suit Morris. What was once erratic play in half court sets, doesn't look so erratic in a higher paced offense.

Who is exactly pathetic, please name those members because I know damn well you're not calling me that.

I was one of those down on Morris because he had shown very little and he's showing glimpses of being a decent player now.

If that was directed at me then whatever. MDI brought it up and I really haven't been a member here that long, so I had no way of knowing if it was true or not.

If you want to talk about dumb, scroll through your own posts there bud, I wasn't going to bring it up but I'm sure you could find a thread or two where RD really highlights what dumb actually is.

People support him when he plays well and acknowledging when he does, that's not flip flopping.

They'll acknowledge when he plays well and you'll have to acknowledge when he plays poorly, otherwise they won't be considered the one sided opinionists, but you will.

I'm not even going to go that far because now it's starting petty... I just see people really don't look for players overall game and try to figure out what players are best at... Like I have said a lot I watch a lot of basketball and I notice the little things a lot of people over look

This offense fits Morris' strengths more than Duhon or Blake. That doesn't mean he's got the job...just that he has more potential to succeed in this offense than the others.

This.

It was a highly entertaining game Jack even stayed until the very end.... he usually leaves late in the 3rd and he actually stayed awake the entire game. Stu Compliments Morris the entire game but the thing I am noticing most is his confidence picking up and it seems like he is really listening to what Nash and Bernie have to say. Off topic a bit, Kobe has played pretty godlike this year and if he keeps this up he is definitely in the convo for MVP.

oh really?? RD makes me look so dumb huh? he posts a lot of stats that don't mean anything like posting defensive numbers for a player who only played 19 games vs a player who played for most of the season getting 23 minutes a game LOL

I don't have a list of unnecessary stats the most I can give you is a box score a player efficiency anything beyond that is doing too much. I think somebody tried to argue with me that if Morris played 20 minutes he would average 6 turnovers a game or something stupid like that and showed "advanced stats" that really didn't prove anything besides the fact that... wherever he got those results from where bs and Morris played better in extended minutes and played better than Blake on BOTH ends of the floor this season
