    How sick is this guy? Putting up big numbers against San Diego State in a huge game. Well on his way to a 3rd 40 point game his the last 4 games.

    He just keeps getting better and better.

    Love the quick release and crossover.

    I knew BYU would end SD State. It was all because of this man.

    He gets buckets in bunches, but his lack of size & athleticism will prevent him from having a significant impact at the next level, IMO. It's hard to excel at his position without those physical tools, but he'll likely find a niche as a situational scorer off the bench. I've seen him compared to Eddie House, and tend to agree.

    Best case scenario: Mark Price.

    Worst case: Adam Morrison.

    We have enough offense. Plus, he's not much of a setup guy. No thanks. I'd rather develop Ish.

    Me too.

    It's unorthodox. He grips the ball fairly high with his off-hand, and opens his elbow up, a technique that coaches typically frown upon.

    I was watching highlights, and he looks like he can create a shot pretty well, and he hustles. Hopefully we end up dropping a few spots by the draft but I can't see Morey getting anyone but a big this time.

    He's a tad slow & a tad sloppy with the ball, but he's gamer with a killer jumpshot. Has that "it" factor! I don't know if he's a star in the NBA, but if he gets with a team that has a dominant player LOOKOUT! His shooting is amazing! I really enjoyed watching him ball! :grin:

    Looked up his highlights on youtube. Seems like a great scorer. Looks like what you would get if you combined the best parts of Aaron Brooks and Kyle Lowry- great shooter, clutch, can finish in the paint, gets to the line, good ballhandler, very competitive, decent defender due to competitiveness despite lack of length and athleticism. Seems like a Morey guy. Could be an All-Star.
