Boston Celtics forward Marcus Morris has a reputation for being a feisty competitor during ballgames. This is why it comes as no surprise that the 29-year-old reacted the way he did following the physical altercation that went down in the hotly contested matchup between the Los Angeles Lakers and Houston Rockets on Saturday night.
Morris took to Twitter to show his amusement to the violent scenes that marred LeBron James’ home debut for his new team:
That’s was a Nice ass left Rondo !!! Lol

Morris appeared to have enjoyed what he saw, even complimenting Lakers veteran Rajon Rondo for the “nice” punch he threw at Rockets point god Chris Paul.
The Association will certainly not take this matter lightly, and suspensions and hefty fines are definitely going to be handed down. Morris does not seem to be in the same boat. This is not exactly the most professional reaction from a fellow NBA player, and surely not what you would want young kids to imbibe.
For his part, Morris has been able to stay fight-free to open the new campaign. He has actually played well for the C’s, averaging 13.3 points on 45.2 percent shooting, 2.0 3-pointers, 6.0 rebounds, 1.0 assists, and 0.7 steals in three appearances.
Morris will look to build on his strong start to the season in the Celtics’ next matchup on Monday when they host Aaron Gordon and the Orlando Magic.
