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.
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.
Harden’s version might be one of the most creative ones done by a pro athlete, but it appears he had the help of Footlocker and Adidas. The Rockets guard “drove by” on a boat in Miami.
On one side of the country a ceremonial first pitch flew so far off track it hit a Red Sox cameraman in the groin and instantly became one of the worst – and most hilarious – in history. On the West Coast, Lakers veteran Corey Brewer was lining up for his first pitch at the Los Angeles Dodgers game. Thankfully for Brewer, it went a little better.
