I have noticed that Darius Morris is not on the bench. Do you know where he is? Did they send him to the D-league?

Yeah, I think he was sent to the D-Fenders a few weeks ago.

Luke made him....disappear...
For what it's worth, the Lakers also clinched the Pacific Division, an achievement Bryant dismissed by saying "We don't hang divisions." No, only the big NBA championship banners are considered wall-worthy for the Lakers.

What possible accreditation would you need beyond a PhD?....

the problem is what he is doing now is not sustainable. he should have returned for at least 2 more years. he would be a top 10 pic. and would surely be in a better position to have a long and successful carrier.

the bold part is a significant stretch IMHO.... Morris lacks a lot of "god given" things to play at this level.... not just "seasoning".

What possible accreditation would you need beyond a PhD?....

Something that would allow people to get college credit, I guess. I could prep them for CLEP and distance learning, I suppose. Want to sponsor me? :man1:

Well..... let's just say it's a "graduated" fee scale...... If TRogers builds up the client base then we may get down to that neighborhood...... :man1:

Mike Bresnahan ‏@Mike_Bresnahan
Lakers will give rookie PG Darius Morris a qualifying offer of about $940,000 making him a restricted FA. He's probably back next year.


I'll tell you where Darius will be......

Back with the Lakers next season.

I honestly still see potential in this guy. He has great handles, he knows how to pass and play the PG spot, and he's good at getting into the lane. He just needs to get under control and improve his shot, needs to work on playing less at full speed 100% of the time, slow down a bit and get under control. I really do think he has the tools to make it in the league though.
