    I don't understand what your point is. My post wasn't ragging on Goudelock - it's moreso on Morris. And my point was that Goudelock gets burn while Morris doesn't, yet a lot of people on here seem to be extremely high on Morris.
    you made a point to compare goudelock to morris when they are in different situations.
    just because two players are both rookies doesn't mean their situations are the same.
    look at jj for an example. someone who was nailed to the bench in chicago and then did well with some playing time.

    if not goudelock then who to back up kobe? if l.a. had any other options they would come first. this year l.a' bench is so bad there are some players they have to play. after the deadline lets see how much burn goudelock gets when l.a. most likely has another player at the 2 off the bench.

    Goudelock gets some burn - and he's a rookie, so why wouldn't they let Morris play - especially since both Fisher and Blake struggle. If he really showed something in practice, the coaching staff would definitely let the kid play - whether it was at the 1 or the 2.

    if it were any other team i would agree. but i cant see brown or kobe having the patience with wanting to break in or teach a rookie. they are all win now. if they did have a competent pg he would get more playing time but they are forced to play fisher and blake. blake is a great back up but not starter material and fisher shouldn't be on the floor this year.

    I see no point trading for players like Darius Morris, players who cannot find any playing time on a team that has a gigantic hole at the position they play.

    with morris i would be playing hard d every shift and every practice. with his frame and passing he could last a while if he were a lock down defender

    Time will tell if 2011 was in fact a weak draft. One player who was taken after Morris is Isaiah Thomas who is giving Sacratomato some solid play of late.

    I can't get enthused about Morris.

    I saw the highlights too. They look pretty impressive but, I just dOnt like how he went so low in a weak draft.
    Darius Morris is the Jonny Flynn lite flavor of the month.

    He went so low in a weak draft because most teams thought he would suck and they were proven right so far. My expectations is he will be out of the NBA in a year or two.

    He'd be a decent piece, but there's no way in the world this team should be overreaching in terms of attempting to acquire him - meaning they shouldn't be giving up assets to secure his services, you know?
    For Calderon no. Morris and pick(s) for Barbosa yes.

    I definitely like Morris and think he will be a solid PG in the future, but outside chance only of a starter. Shocking he went so low compared to some early mocks putting him a little outside the lottery.
    I would definitely like him here.

    The Lakers are having real PG issues and he played only 6 minutes in february. He could be solid backup with more playing time, but I don't believe he's starter material or the answer to this team's prayers.
    That's what I believe as well..

    That could benefit us in the Wilson chandler pursuit because Barbosa salary of 7.6 Million off the table due to the TPE the lakers have through the Odom Trade, If you see the workouts and the highlights you can see Darius Morris is 6-4 with long arms and above average lateral quickness which means he can intergrate to be apart of the DC system he just needs a chance
