John Wall is likely going to be the NBA Draft's top overall pick later this month, but while he waits for that to happen, the former Kentucky star has been living in Los Angeles. Michigan point guard Darius Morris is from LA, and he has been back home while he waits to return to Ann Arbor to start preparing for next season. As a result, Morris has been able to work out with Wall, which I very much like to hear as a Michigan basketball fan.â†µ
Wall is doing his prep in Los Angeles. Morris grew up there and returned for his down time away from Ann Arbor. The two were good friends during their high school and AAU days, even though Wall grew up in North Carolina.â†µ
Scout.com basketball recruiting expert Evan Daniels caught one of their workouts this week and was impressed with Morris' progress since he watched him in high school.â†µ
Working out with Wall should only help Morris continue to improve. And if we're lucky, maybe Wall will teach Morris some moves so we can get a "Darius Morris dance" next year. That would certainly make Michigan Madness much more entertaining, although I don't think it could top Zack Novak's dunking skills.
