That's why coaches & GM's have better insight than us -- they get to see what's going on at practice.
Playing awesome defense as well, which is something we've sorely needed at the 1 spot.
Between him and Duhon, I really don't think I want to see Blake out there at all when he comes back.
As a starter, I do prefer Morris over Blake since Morris is currently our best defensive PG. Neither Morris or Blake are starting caliber playmakers and Kobe will likely be the PG regardless which one of them starts.
The 2nd unit is a different matter. Morris' still exhibits poorer ballhandling and playmaking skills for a rotation PG in half-court than Blake or Duhon. We can't hide Morris by having Meeks be the ballhandler and playmaker like we can with Kobe. Meeks is a pure SG.
I definitely do see your point, but the way i see it, Morris (IF he keeps this up) is a better fit for the second unit.
Younger, faster players generally play for the other team's second unit and we need Morris to match up. Blake will get torched as usual. I also view the second unit as being able to push the tempo a little more than the starters (same way Farmar/Vujacic did). Morris fits that mold better. Blake sucks at this.
But overall, I just really can't stand the way Blake plays. If he's not hitting his threes, he's basically useless. Blake's never a threat to score in any other position other than set shooting.
If Morris keeps playing like he's been playing, I prefer him over Blake period, regardless of what unit he's with. Blake's a turnstyle on defense and Morris has performed pretty well against some tough covers.
