It’s a known fact that Los Angeles Lakers forward Markieff Morris shares an awful lot of things with his twin brother, Marcus Morrus. Apart from having identical tattoos on their respective bodies, it was revealed that the Morris twins are still sharing one bank account even to this day.

Marcus recently confirmed these claims on Twitter, throwing a witty jab at his older twin after he signed a four-year, $64 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers. Kieff responded by reminding Mook that he is still the first brother to win an NBA title and he plans to take home another one next year.

In the wake of the Lakers stealing Montrezl Harrell in free agency, the Clippers panicked a bit and threw a large sum at free agent Marcus Morris to shore up their frontcourt.

Markieff Morris, on the other hand, also stayed with the Lakers in a bid for another championship run in 2020-21. But unlike Marcus who got the big bucks, Kieff settled for a one-year, minimum contract. Given his impressive play for the Purple and Gold last season, Markieff could have easily gotten way more from other teams. Earlier reports claimed that he was considering reuniting with his brother with the Clippers but eventually agreed to terms with the Lakers.

Morris was dropped by the Detroit Pistons last February and was claimed by the Lakers off waivers. He suited up for 14 regular season games and 21 playoff appearances. He started a couple of games for LA in the postseason and rewarded them with 5.9 points and 3.0 rebound on 42.0 percent shooting from behind the arc.
