“I’ll probably never say another word to him,” Pistons forward Marcus Morris said Thursday. “You’re around them all year, and I’m pretty sure Nick Young knows some things about him that he’d never say. “At the end of the day, it’s unfortunate that it happened. I can’t even hope they fix it, because that’s one of them things that’s quite unforeseen for me personally.”

Storyline: D'Angelo Russell Situation
Though the Suns made no promises the Morrises would always play together, the brothers felt the implied message of what they surrendered financially warranted being treated with slightly more respect. Instead, Marcus was forced to start all over somewhere else and Markieff was stuck counting the days until he was eventually granted his exile from the organization that drafted him 13th overall in 2011.
Markieff Morris and Marcus Morris can probably count on one hand each the number of times they both really wanted the same thing and their brother stood as the impediment to getting it. Usually, those matters are settled by plopping on the couch, pulling out the joysticks and going at it on either Madden NFL or NBA 2K. They’ve used video games to determine who would buy their mother a car or nice piece of jewelry, and Markieff claimed the biggest prize three years ago when Marcus got traded to Phoenix and Markieff claimed the master bedroom at the home they shared after a best-of-seven Madden football battle.
The biggest issue, though, has been a lack of communication. As a lottery pick, Markieff viewed himself as part of a new core that would lead the Suns back to respectability. When Babby heeded his pleas to acquire Marcus from the Rockets at the 2013 February trade deadline, he believed his opinion on team decisions mattered, especially after it nearly led to a playoff berth. The twins bought a house not far from Sarver’s, and whether it was the owner joining their card games on the team plane or routinely inviting them over to work out on his indoor basketball court—complete with a piece of the Suns’ All-Star Game floor—the twins came to believe Sarver and Babby saw them as the team’s leaders and would afford them commensurate respect.
