Darius Morris went behind the bar and grabbed a beer for my housemate at the NCAA bball final at the alumni bar in LA, but then he and Chris Duhon left without paying the $200 tab so he had to cover.
Darius Morris Sighting
Where is said alumni bar, pray tell?
Assume he's talking about South on Wilshire and Stanford. Would make sense because Chris Duhon actually just bought this bar to turn it into some kind of "Farm To Table" place????
I hate that fucking place.
Great to see Morris get some minutes - Hope he can work himself into the rotation for next year. The next few years should be exciting for us as Michigan Fans watching our players in the NBA ... Its been way too long having just one wolverine play significant minutes for an NBA team (Crawford). That being said Juwan Howard did pick up a ring last year!
Crunch time for him right now, his contract is up at the end of the season. Lets hope he can make an impact or else it looks like he will be joining our contingent of players in Europe/Asia
That brutal defensive play at the end of the first half, where he let Ginobli easily get off an open 3, can't help his cause
That was bad, I feel like he should be playing better than he is. He is litterly a Andre Miller clone, but they are so different.
He was also, apparently, supposed to give a foul there. So it was a double f' up.
I was going to go through the whole literally/figuratively spiel, but then I realized that you said litterly, which changes everything. Carry on.
He took a big chance by only signing a 1 year deal. He's gotten enough minutes where he should be getting some decent offers.
Pg's have a funny way of just turning good after bouts of mediocrity (See: Conley in Memphis). I would love to see Morris in Denver for a year so he can add a bit of Andre Miller to his game. Not the .23 cm verticle part, but the "I am the real Uncle Drew" part.
I'm not a 100% sure, but I think the one year deal was when he came out of college and then he got another deal with the lakers after that year.
Nice steal but bad shot
Just got a steal, missed a 2-pointer.
Sad to see Nash like this. He can barely move.
And sadly, I think this is likely Morris's last season in the NBA. He just doesn't do any one thing quite well enough. Can't really guard. Isn't quite able to break down the D and distribute. Doesn't shoot that well.
The Lakers will give him another one year deal. They are so salary strapped that they won't be able to replace him with anyone good and they only have a second round pick in this year's draft and they'll need to take a 2 or a 3 and hope he's good. With Nash being really old and Blake being still pretty old, they need a young PG and Morris is cheaper than Duhon and just as good.
Nothing against him but if he's out Morris will get some extended time.
Alright ... Free points for Morris!
Sounds like Blake tweaked his hamstring, so Morris should get some extended minutes next game.
4-7 shooting 10 pts and 1 stl. Only thing he was missing were some assists.
Looks really good as long as you don't take game situations into account. Yay boxscores!
Not a great game obviously, but he looks way better when he's handling the ball. I don't understand why they keep putting him out on the wing. He's not exactly the best outside shooting guy. Let him handle the ball more if you're putting him out there
The Lakers are running out of options.
I still hold out hope that Deshawn makes it back to the states(and the league). I'd still argue he has the best UM pro game since JC. Just hasn't gotten a shot for some reason.
Can Morris hold on to these one year deals? He really doesnt have that one stand out ability, but I knew this when he came out of college
