Morrison may have been the butt of the joke as the Lakers celebrated their title on Jimmy Kimmel Live, but Kobe Bryant gave the former Gonzaga star credit for accepting a lesser role for the good of the team. Morrison wasn’t an effective force on the floor this year for the Lakers, but that doesn’t mean he didn’t help the team.
Morrison worked hard on the practice court to push his teammates and provide a much-needed service from the bench. His impact on the team off the court and the Lakers’ chemistry was certainly felt, and mentioned by Bryant. However, Morrison earns an INC. grade due to his lack of time spent on the floor for Los Angeles.
