Boston Celtics Marcus Morris: “Hasn’t Been Any Fun” In Boston

Quote:
Marcus Morris provided some insight into the Celtics’ locker room situation after Saturday’s loss to the Clippers, relays Chris Forsberg of NBC Sports Boston. His comments came at the end of a miserable night for the team, which squandered a 28-point lead and saw Kyrie Irving leave in the second quarter with a sprained right knee.

Reeling from back-to-back losses to both L.A. teams, Morris said the season “just hasn’t been fun for a long time.” The Celtics, who were projected to be the top team in the East, have underachieved all season long, sporting a 35-21 record and holding the fifth spot in the conference. Players have been asked to adjust to new roles, Irving has publicly called out his younger teammates, speculation has started that he might break his verbal commitment to re-sign with Boston and there have been persistent rumors that the team will break up its core in a few months to chase Anthony Davis.

“For me, it’s not really about [Saturday’s] loss. It’s about the attitudes that we’re playing with,” Morris said. “Guys are hanging their heads. It’s just not fun. It’s not fun. We’re not competing at a high level.

“Even though we’re winning, it’s not fun. I don’t see the joy in the game. I watch all these other teams around the league and guys are up on the bench, they’re jumping on the court, they’re doing all of this other stuff that looks like they’re enjoying their teammates’ success, they’re enjoying everything, and they’re playing together and they’re playing to win. And when I look at us, I just see a bunch of individuals.”
What are your thoughts on this?

I can’t say I’m surprised, honestly.

Marcus isn't wrong and I'm glad there's at least one person on this team showing some heart and showing that it's supposed to be a team game and not an individual game.

Because dudes got a little taste of success and are way too desperate for it again. Gotta let it come to them. They’re still the best in the east when fully healthy, gotta execute.

You think they're stronger than the 76ers, even after trading for Tobias?

Way more of a complete team if they figure it out

They got to fix their mistakes. Follow Morris' advice, coach.
