The whole long conversation above is often predicated on comparisons between Morris as he matured through the middle and end of last season and Burke as a freshman. Morris's creative potential is his strongest suit for me, but that does not equate to the complete court vision that Burke is rapidly developing. Much of a fan as I was of Morris--and I defended him here and at mgoblog against a LOT of knuckleheads who said he sucked through much of last year--Burke is by next year a better player AND asset to this team, at least if he continues to evolve as he has to date.
Morris sifted a lot of evidence and made a decision. When he landed with the Lakes it looked like a good one. At the moment, not so much. But he may yet pull it off.
