Identical twins, Marcus and Markieff Morris, are now on the same basketball team for the first time since both players left the University of Kansas for the NBA.
The Suns will be hoping to bank off some Bash Brothers magic to help spark what has been a disappointing season.
Marcus Morris, who was traded from Houston on Wednesday, fought desperately for playing time on the Rockets bench. After playing a minimal amount last year including a stint in the D-league, Morris was starting to break out this season for the Rockets.
In the 55 games Morris has played this season, he is averaging 8.6 ppg and 4.0 rebounds. The Suns will hope that those numbers will continue to increase as Morris settles into the team and sees his playing time increase.
The Phoenix Suns traded a second-round draft pick for Marcus Morris. It was regarded throughout the NBA as a low-risk, high-reward front-office decision.
Marcus Morris had been on the Suns radar since they drafted his twin brother, Markieff Morris, in 2011. The Suns reportedly attempted to trade their 2012 first-round pick for Marcus believing that a reunion of the brothers would help motivate both players.
During Marcus’ press conference he called the trade a, “fresh start to my career,” despite only playing in 72 total NBA games.
The brothers appeared to be extremely excited to be reunited turning right to twitter to declare to the world their happiness.
There is no denying that the Morris twins play better together. There are inseparable and share an incredibly special bond. They just might be the best pair of brothers since Mario and Luigi were jumping out of pipes and spitting fireballs.
Hopefully, these best friend twins can go on to have bright careers in Phoenix for the Suns. Suns fans should start learning the Morris twins trademark phrase, Team F.O.E., which stands for family over everything.
