Markieff Morris has joined the Brooklyn Nets on a minimum veteran deal after spending the last season with the Miami Heat. The twin brother came from winning the NBA championship in 2020 with the Los Angeles Lakers to sign veteran deals around the association.
Now, he's set to return to his best form to help the overpowered Nets, just like he did with the Purple and Gold in the infamous Orlando bubble. Morris is a great pick for this team, as they are returning from a tumultuous offseason where all of Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving, and Ben Simmons were linked with moves away from Barclays Center.
The Nets appear to be in a favorable position to compete for the championship, and Kieff will try to add more value to that squad. While he's happy to join the Nets, others are ready to roast him, including some long-term nemesis that haven't forgotten about what he did at the start of next season.
Jokic Brothers Call Out Markieff Morris On Twitter
The Jokic brothers made sure to remind Morris what they still think of him. After his infamous spat with Nikola Jokic last year, Markieff made some enemies in Serbia, and the Jokic brothers led that group. Following a back and forth on social media in the wake of this situation, the brothers made sure to call out Morris whenever they had the chance.
Now that his signing with the Nets was announced, they didn't miss their chance to diss the player, calling him 'baby' and claiming he faked his injury.
CRY IN BROOKLYN TOO! BABY SHOVE CRY BABY BROOKLYN NET
"STOP TALK!", they told Marcus Morris.
"HE CANT NOT STAY HEALTH FROM BABY SHOVE! HE NOT GOOD VERSION! WEAKNESS !!!" they replied to a fan who said Morris would be valuable for the Nets if he returned to his 2020 version.
"11- YEAR NBA. HE WAS FINE UNTIL NIKOLA DID BABY SHOVE NOW HE HURT AND WRONG VERSION! HOW COME ??" they replied to NBA insider Shams Charania.
"YOU FAKE INJURY!" they ended their little rant with Markieff.
The brothers are always ready to defend Nikola, no matter who is in front of them. Morris learned that lesson the hard way, and even though they haven't been physical with him, the Jokic brothers know how to pick on him on social media. Nikola already stated he doesn't have any problem with Kieff, but it's not the same for his brothers.
