Markieff Morris: Derrick Williams ‘Not as Good as Advertised’

by May 27, 2011

While Derrick Williams has been open about what he feels will be his success on the next level, Markieff Morris isn’t so sure. From the Washington Post:

“I didn’t think he was as good as advertised,” Morris said. “He got the benefit of the calls from the ref and we had to guard him different. He definitely had a good game against us, because we couldn’t guard him how we wanted to guard him, and that’s what happened.”

So when he hears that Williams is a lock to go in the top two, Morris said, “It’s still surprises me. What he did to Duke, he wouldn’t do that to me or my brother [Marcus]. I’m dead serious. He wouldn’t. At all. He’s good. But if we was to work out, I would go at him and I would be able to stop him more than people would expect, you know what I mean.”


Markieff, from Kansas, is projected to be drafted in the middle of the first round. Derrick William’s is the consensus number two pick.
