Offensively he can be nails in the triangle. Excellent decision maker, great shooter, reads the floor beautifully. But defensively he's slower than mud in January and will be a total liability. Add 20 pounds and that gets even worse.
This team can no longer afford to keep choosing offense-only players. You can try to claim Moustache's passion and strength will compensate for a woeful lack of speed and agility, but that's grasping at straws. Morrison will be a nightmare defensively.
You guys can't be so head over heels in love with offense that you ignore defense and try to convince yourself he won't be that bad. Add another 20 pounds and he will be that bad. This team needs 2-way players. All matadors should be crossed off the list immediately.
