Crazy NBA Conspiracy Theory: Have Markieff & Marcus Morris Swapped Places Against Boston?

This might be the the craziest NBA conspiracy yet.

In Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinal between the Wizards and Celtics, Markieff Morris went down with what looked like a severe ankle injury after Al Horford’s foot undercut him on a shot attempt.

Morris played 11 minutes up until that point, but was forced to leave for the remainder of the contest, and it was assumed he would be out for much longer.

On Tuesday night, Morris was in the starting lineup, and he played his best game of the playoffs, finishing with 16 points, six rebounds, and a couple of assists. He showed zero signs that his ankle was bothering him, which begged the question: Was this actually Markieff Morris, or was it his twin brother who plays for the Detroit Pistons, Marcus Morris??

Here’s Marcus sporting his bro’s Wizards jersey.

Social media ran with this theory: 

They have both admitted to doing this in the past:

“When the twins were on the Suns and Markieff got suspended for a game, a reporter asked Markieff about the prospect of playing in Marcus’s jersey. He said it had worked in the past.

“We did it before in AAU ball,” Markieff admitted in 2013. “It [the jersey switch] was on the bench. It happened real quick. He had hurt his ankle but I had fouled out. I gave them a little limp back in, like I was hurt and kept playing.”

One player was hurt. One was ineligible. So the ineligible one pretended to be hurt, and the hurt one sat. Fast-forward to 2017, when Marcus is ineligible to play and Markieff is hurt. The only thing missing was a fake limp.”

Marcus Morris than responded…

What and who do you believe?
