Enemy Chatter: Markieff Morris still wants to kick Al Horford’s ass

We often wonder what opposing teams, their beat reporters and bloggers are saying about the Celtics. Here’s a look at some enemy chatter from Washington.

Morris also offered some additional thoughts on the Wizards-Celtics rivalry now that his brother Marcus plays in Boston. Markieff spoke on the matter in August, but this time was asked about his personal feud with Al Horford. Morris and Horford became enemies during the second round playoff series between the Wizards and Celtics this past spring after Horford undercut Morris on a shot in Game 1, injuring his ankle.

“S***, I’m still gonna kick his ass. We’ve still got that rivalry,” Morris said.

Even so, Morris does think things will be changed now that his brother is in Boston and much of the Celtics’ roster has been turned over.

“Ever since that trade, it’s kind of felt a little different. Not only with him being traded, but with [Isaiah Thomas] and [Jae] Crowder and all those guys. It feels a little different,” he said.

I love Markieff Morris and the Wizards. I really do. Such a fiery guy on a cute, little team.

Morris forgot to mention Kelly Olynyk, the mild mannered Canadian who single-handedly snuffed out Death Row DC. #neverforget

Washington gave huge money to John Wall (warranted) and Otto Porter Jr (ehhh) and is essentially running back the same team this season. I enjoy mocking them but I anticipate another fierce battle in the playoffs.
