Darius Morris has an increasing chance to get picked in the first round according to the Detroit News. I think it's a good thing for him (obviously) and the Michigan program long term. That said, this quote by Morris hurts a bit; I think because it's hard to deny that he's right on some level. Agree with him? No?
Once Morris declared, though, he experienced some backlash from fans who felt Michigan was primed to take a huge leap in 2011-12. But, he felt he was prepared for the criticism. He saw it happen with former teammate Manny Harris, who left last year after his junior season. "It didn't get to me, I experienced it all my life," Morris said. "You do think about it, when your biggest fans instantly turn on you. It comes with the territory with the Michigan fan base." All in all, Morris hopes fans will realize he made the best decision for his future.
