Marcus Morris getting in Tristan Thompson’s face lights up the internet

May 16, 2018, 12:36 PM

Marcus Morris was a notorious feather-ruffler during his three years with the Phoenix Suns and if you’ve followed his antics so far in the Eastern Conference Finals, not much has changed.

After proclaiming he was the best player to guard LeBron James before Game 1 of the Boston Celtics’ series with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Morris got into it with Cavs center Tristan Thompson in Game 2 by screaming in his face.

The incident sparked a wave of memes from the world wide web, many of which included hot takes on socialite Khloe Kardashian, the mother of Thompson’s second daughter.

Another one referenced the recent Yanny-Laurel debate:

While some might see the move by Morris as disrespectful, it is always fun to embalm a controversial event with a glorious meme. Some got out of hand.

Morris is averaging 12.9 points and 5.4 rebounds per game for the Celtics this postseason, giving something Suns fans to scream about. During Morris’ best season with the Suns he averaged 10.4 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.

Morris and the Celtics lead the Cavs 2-0 in the Eastern Conference Finals with the series headed to Cleveland for Games 3 and 4.
