In terms of expectations he played okay last night. He had a few solid plays, no turnovers to my knowledge which is amazing so hopefully he can build on last nights performance.

Morris has some scoring ability...which might qualify him as a third string SG or something, but alas he is our second string PG, and if he faces even an average NBA backup PG, he will get lit up like an Atlas rocket.

Offense
For a PG, his handles are highly suspect, and he doesn't handle being pressured very well. His passing is poor, especially under duress, and he lacks even the basic court vision you would need to make a play. More often than not, he dribbles himself into trouble and then turns it over trying to pass it off. He has a long way to go in this department...he needs to spend time in D-League learning how to play PG.

Defense
His lateral quickness and reaction time are not NBA caliber, his defensive stance is too high, and while he some length, it's not enough to make up for his lack of quickness. He's got size, and maybe if he had a post game he could back down the other PG...but I've never seen it. He can make a layup and shoot that baseline three.

Duhon isn't a world beater, but at least he's an NBA caliber guard....that's a couple notches above what Morris is right now. So why is Morris the first guard off the bench?

Well... he's really more like a SG (He is 6-4 after all) who doesn't have great handles. But he can't really shoot either.


That's what's known as a "Smush Parker".

Yes. It's a very small compliment for Smush, but largely about how bad Morris is.
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:

^^ Agreed. Smush actually had some legit point guard skills. The problem was his horrid attitude and mental weakness.

Okay, so I just joined this forum specifically to talk about how terrible Darius Morris is. Here's an example of why:

Tonight, against the Jazz, the Lakers were cutting into the Jazz's lead with about 7 or 8 minutes to go in the fourth. The lead was only about 4 or 5 points ("Coach" Mike Brown should have put the starters back in at this point, but that's a different issue). The Jazz were out of sync and it looked like the Lakers were going to make a run at it. However, Darius Morris had his own plan for how to handle the next 45 seconds. First, he got burned by Randy Foye on a three pointer after an ill-advised gamble for a steal. Foye was heating up at this point, and should not have been left alone, regardless of what else was happening on the floor. Less than 10 seconds later, Morris jacked up a three with 18 seconds on the shot clock that, needless to say, clanged off the back of the rim. A few seconds later, he got burned AGAIN by Foye on a three pointer after ANOTHER ill-advised gamble for a steal. This put the Lakers in an 11 point hole that they never recovered from. Thus, Morris single handidly blew the game tonight.

The moral of this story? Darius Morris is terrible and does not even belong in the D-League. I don't care how young he is.

Morris tonight :hurl:
Every time I begin to ask, "Is he really as great as I think he is?" ...He proves that he is.
Every time I begin to wonder...He proves it...That is why I won't lose hope in him.

Lead down to 5... in comes Mo Williams. The Potato leaves Darius Morris on him. Darius with the fake hustle allows Mo Williams to make uncontested passes to Randy Foye. Game. Blouses.

I realize that I don't possess the basketball intelligence nor the scouting skills of Mitch, but my personal opinion of Morris is that he does not belong in the NBA. I think he would even be below average in the D-League. I can say with a high level of certainty that Morris does more harm then good in most games that he plays. I also know that his decision making is horrible and that he dribbles with his head down.

I'm stunned that he gets to play so much, even with an injured Nash and Blake as our starter.

What the hell is goin on... I've learned tonight that I'm just an idiot and Brown is genius. That's the only explanation because I'm not "getting" any of this

MWP at 2 -- Morris running our offense, no pnr, the princeton offense

I must be an idiot to not see Brown's brilliance

The fact that this thread is 14 pages long gives me pause.... it would seem that everyone could get in the "he sucks" post and it would be over in 2 pages.... nothing more need be said....

Yes.... his suckage is increasing.... but how about some love for Ebanks.... he had a nice stretch toward the end of the 3rd quarter that made Morris look ok for a possession or two.....
