Imagine taking the soul of a 7-foot rock star and dropping it into a 5’6 baller. Now imagine that 5’6 baller being available in the second round of the draft. That’s what happened when the Connecticut Sun drafted Alexis Morris out of LSU with the 22nd pick in the WNBA Draft. Morris was one of my favorite players coming out of college. Not because of the 15 ppg or the 4.1 assists per game, but because of everything else she brings to the game.
She has the heart to be a leader, the ear to listen to those that’s helping her lead and the fact that she is clutch and can knock down that shot at the buzzer or put her teammates in the right place to where they can do the same. Alexis Morris is a champion and one of the players that I personally believe will shine in the WNBA from this year’s draft class if given the opportunity. The point guard that plays as if she’s the biggest player on the court is the reason that the Sun may have struck gold with this pick.
