Hey all,

Here’s something I put together on Darius Morris – full feature with quotes from Kobe, Howard, D’Antoni and Darius on his role, energy and why it’s working even when it wasn’t (Melo):

Yep, Morris' athleticism is what's getting him minutes right now. But when he tries to do too much it kills us, if he's going to get minutes then he shouldn't be doing anything but defending, standing in the corner for a three, and finishing in transition.

^^That photo sums up Morris for me......

This is what happened when you don't adress the huge lack of speed and athleticism on the perimeter for 2 straight seasons ... you have to play a guy who isn't NBA caliber on the offensive end of the floor

well yeah the thing is he doesn't do anything really good on the O so he can't make up for anything ... If he was at least consistent 3 point shooter (even just from the corner) but he isn't ...
