Luka Doncic: “I just hope it wasn’t intentional.” With eyebrows raised, he said to @townbrad: “Tell me what you think.” He said Marcus Morris Sr. talked trash all game. “I don’t want to talk to him.” https://t.co/8ju3WjF1rY— Tim MacMahon (@espn_macmahon) August 26, 2020
I'll say this. Marcus Morris is way too smart of a defender to take such a terrible angle here before the inbound while pressing. Do with that what you will. https://t.co/NRrhbUShj8— Aye throw that Boyz II Men on (@DragonflyJonez) August 26, 2020
I play this game with a level of respect for myself and other players. To think I would try to injure somebody is crazy to me. 10 years going against the best. I stand on morals and hard work. I compete and leave it out there every game.— Marcus Morris (@MookMorris2) August 26, 2020
I’ve been a longtime Marcus Morris. Hearing stories about him and his brother beating up the entire Kansas football team, eventually landing on the Celtics but this is blatant and needs to be punished. Clippers are up 20, there is one man on the Mavs who might be able to do something and you go after him. They got into a scuffle of sorts in Game 1 where Porzingas got tossed but this is an uncalled for escalation.
This is as close to headhunting as it gets. Going after a guys ankle who can’t stop hurting his ankle. The NBA needs to suspend Mook for at least a game, it isn’t because this was against Luka but at the same time it is. They need to take action like this no matter who Mook was trying to hurt but because it was Luka the NBA might actually do something. This is way to similar to Zaza injuring Kawhi a few years ago.
