What do you think? The kid drops 37, an insane accomplishment for any rookie, but an undrafted one? Come on! That's insane. The guy's got stroke, he can hit from everywhere. Check out the full highlights, he puts a few back, hits some 3's and creates his own shot. I am really interested to see how he does the next few games, and if Nellie gives him a chance to make a few mistakes. We'll just have to wait and see. Here's the video of the 15 shots.

ZOMG yes!
add him to the "who's better? Kobe or LeBron" debate
>.<

lol. i think he hs a future, but then again i only saw him play once.
we gotta see some more from him to judge. he doesnt have to score 37 a night, but making shots regulary would be nice.

i hope he does well. he has a beautiful jump shot and that game definitely earned him more minutes.

Relax, he's a shooter, he got hot.
Consistancy is what makes you "real"

He did really good in that game. He must be Kobe Bryant.

I hope so.. but let's see what he does against teams that play defense. Watching the defense in that game was horrifying.

Don't get out of control.
Remember the streak of games Terrance Kinsey had a couple years back? Where is he now.

One game, let's see how he progresses for the rest of the season.

He'll probably shoot like 1-10 in the next game. After all, it was against the Clippers

Hmm...well besides the 37pt game, he's averaging a point every 2 minutes played, which isn't bad for a scorer, let alone an undrafted rookie. Anyone know why he slipped out of the draft?

Like everyone else has stated...

What is one game? NOTHING

That doesn't mean he won't be anything but he has potential and definitely a good feeling for GSW fans. Time will tell. Maybe he and Monta Ellis can put something together and be dangerous in the future.

Charlie V had over 40 in a game his rookie season...

I remember Charlie V's rookie season. He was pretty impressive.

Obviously it's way too soon to say Morrow will be any good, or a consistent contributor, but an undrafted rookie doesn't drop 37 points in his first start, or any start for that matter, in his rookie season.

That game shows what the kid is capable of. Obviously it's unrealistic to expect that consistently, but given the time he needs on the floor to develop and the freedom to be able to make mistakes without fear of bench time or limited minutes I think the kid can grow into something special. 37 points is a great game against any team no matter how good or how bad. Remember 15-20 shooting to get 37 points.....he didn't need to shoot 9-28 with 15 free throws to get there....

He looked pretty good, and it's something for him to build on. I don't know why no-one's mentioned his rebounds. He had 11, which is also very good.

25 points on 8-12 shooting tonight including 4-5 on 3s.

Also iced the game with 5 seconds left with 3 made FTs (2 bonus, 1 tech).

How's that for a follow up?

Nice. Looking like a steal for the Warriors.

It's players like this that make you jealous it wasn't your team that stole him out of the 2nd round.

Warriors have a knack of getting unknown players and turning them into something.

-Andris Biedrins
-Monta Ellis
-Kelenna Azubuike

Remember Gilbert Arenas? They got him with the first pick in the 2nd round.

He is a good looking shooter... the rest of his game is a work in progress. He almost cost GSW the game. With a five point lead, he stepped out of bounds before catching the ball on an inbound. He then got away with a foul on Rudy Fernandez that would have put a 94% shooter on the line to tie the game.

My guess is that he will be a brent barry type who especially shines in the GSW system.

As a Warriors fan this is exciting as hell. We needed this. With Baron gone, Ellis out and Harrington benched till we can find someone who will trade for him this is exactly the type of player the Warriors needed. A truly EFFICIENT scorer who is stepping it up and taking the pressure off guys like Biedrins, Jackson, and Maggette to do it all.

I'm ****in excited...

I think Jackson is playing the point for them until Ellis gets back
