Just got home from the gym and my shift and saw my boys took my favorite Kansas baller in the draft! This day just got awesome! He’ll be a great replacement to fill the void Carl Landry (who we all still love and miss) left when we shipped him off to Sac-town.
Who would’ve thought Markieff would’ve gone before his brother?! Wow. I mean Marcus was the Big 12 player of the year! Phoenix, you got a great KU boy…but how did you manage to mix up the twins like that? Either way, I’m glad you did because H-town will love Marcus.
Ahhhhh! I’m super stoked the Rockets front office pulled this out!!! Someone let me know when the Rockets player shirts are ready…I want a Morris one!
Philadelphia natives Markieff and Marcus Morris are identical twin brothers with identical tattoos. They both played forward for the Kansas Jayhawks and now are both in the NBA. Markieff Morris plays for the Phoenix Suns (#13 overall draft pick in 2011), and Marcus Morris plays for the Houston Rockets (#14 overall draft pick in 2011). As of this post, Markieff has played in all but one of the Suns’ games in his first season, starting 5, averaging 7 points and 4.3 rebounds per game. Marcus has played in 9 games all season for the Rockets, and was ticketed for his alleged involvement in a bar fight the day after the NBA Rising Stars Challenge during All Star Weekend.
