Re: Article: LA Daily News Blog - A role for Morrison?
I, like every other Laker fan, would love to see this guy play like he did in the NCAA tourney. Dude played like a madman, such emotion and moxy. I didn't think he would live up to the hype, but still thought he would be a good NBA player. The problem with this guy, is he doesn't play any defense, terrible lateral quickness so he won't be able to play the guard position, and we have lots of options at the 3, so it would be hard to put him in there and expect good results. I think LA will let his 5 mil expire, and maybe resign him to a deal similar to they gave Luke afer his rookie deal (2 yrs around 3 mil), if he is smart, he will take it cause I don't see anyone shelling out more.
I do hope they can deal his ending contract for a veteran or a promising young player, but there isn't a market for this guy. So lets hope he has learned more about the triangle, and his Knee is as good as he says it is.
I am sure he might be "the best shooter we've had" but Sasha went through the same thing. Shoots 80% in practice, and 20% in actual games, so they even out to about 50% total. but we only care about game action son!!! Like young buck says, "STEP YO' GAME UP!!!" Make everyone remember that you were the peice we traded Vlade for, because right now it looks like you were the throw in, not Chris Brown.
