It may be difficult for Markieff Morris to continue viewing the Boston Celtics as a bitter rival once he steps on the court and sees his twin brother Marcus wearing that green jersey. For John Wall, it will apparently be very easy. “I told him ‘man, I know that’s your brother and you do everything alike, but he’s our enemy when we play them those four games.’ He’s cool with it,” Wall said on Friday at his charity event at Rosedale Community Center in Northeast Washington.
Wall met with the media, but first made an address to the kids and parents who showed up for his backpack giveaway and other charity efforts. He began by referencing Charlottesville. “I know this week has been tough for our country with things not going the way we would want them to, but the most important thing is that you can’t use that as retaliation. We’ve all got to treat each other as the same. No matter what color you are, we are all family. We’re all in this world trying to make it more peaceful and promising than anything,” he said.
“It’s been difficult [the last week],” Wall continued. “It’s been tough. We go through times where things are going in the right direction for us and our country is going in positive ways, then we revert back to the stuff we try to tell our kids not to do, that our parents told us not to be. We are going through what we went through in the past when we thought we got away from that. It’s kind of amazing to think that in 2017 and going into 2018, that we’re still dealing with the same type of things that our great, great grandparents dealt with. We thought we were going in a positive direction. All we can do is not use it in retaliation. Try to stay positive and understand that we need to give these kids a brighter [outlook]. Don’t use it to go back at these people.”
The Wizards’ John Wall is one of the best passers in the NBA. Last season, he finished with the third-most assists behind James Harden and Russell Westbrook, and he had the second-most assists per game with 10.7 behind James Harden’s 11.2. On Friday at his foundation’s event, Wall showed that he can also throw a football pretty well.
