Clippers forward Marcus Morris calls out ESPN for disrespect over Top 100 snub
Los Angeles Clippers forward Marcus Morris made sure to let everyone know that he’s not happy he didn’t make it to ESPN’s Top 100 players list for the 2021-22 season. After all, he firmly believes he’s one of the best 100 players in the league today.
On Twitter, Morris didn’t hold back in expressing his disappointment to ESPN. The network released it’s Top 100 players list on Friday, with Kevin Durant, LeBron James and Giannis Antetokounmpo topping it. Meanwhile, rookies like Jalen Green (96) and Cade Cunningham (76) made it to the elite selection despite having to play official NBA minutes.

Marcus Morris averaged 13.4 points, 4.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 57 games. He also recorded a 47.3 percent shooting clip from 3-point territory, all while attempting more than five triples per outing. He was undoubtedly a crucial piece in the Clippers’ run to the West Finals during the 2021 playoffs.
Despite his efforts, though, it’s obvious very few people recognize it and give credit to his contributions to the team. His lack of star power and age might be the reason for that, since the list also includes projections for the 2021-22 season, but it’s still hard not to feel for Morris and the snub.
Then again, the said disrespect should only motivate Morris to show ESPN and everyone that they made a mistake not including him on the list.
