Morris again about the incident with Jokic: Coward hit me, he will get his own

Almost two years have passed. The incident between Markioff Morris and Nikola Jokic is remembered by the NBA. The Dallas player decided to look back at the situation once more and warn the Serb along the way.

Then the players of both teams got involved in the whole situation and barely separated the warring parties. Then Jokić’s brothers threatened Marcus and Markif Morris, who did not remain in their debt.

It all ended with a suspension for the Denver center who spent as much as two weeks on the field due to excessive use of force.

Now, Markieff Morris recalled that event again during a guest appearance on Matt Barnes’ Showtime basketball podcast.

“A coward’s blow, it was a low blow, it did something like a whip to my body. He caught me off guard, he just did a lot. At that time, I was really “disconnected”, it was enough for Miami, they wanted to prevent me and save me from myself. But two weeks after that I was ready to play. It wasn’t something I was hurt or in pain about. To receive such a blow, he “snapped” me with that cowardly blow. He’ll get him, don’t think about it.

Morris points out that it was not a dirty foul on Jokic, but that he simply wanted to stop Denver’s attack.

“I committed a foul, I raised my hand, I was not dirty. He tried to jump and I made a foul, I don’t know what he was thinking, it turned out like I wanted to hurt him. Even the league made it look like I wanted to hurt him. I don’t understand that, the league punished me. They tell me “you shouldn’t have turned your back on him”, but we are not on the street, we are on the field. If we were on the street, I wouldn’t turn my back on you, I would continue, but on the field, it’s a foul. As it is not a cheap shot, I fouled and made it known that I was going to foul by raising my hand. And he hit me from behind, okay.

And Markif’s brother Marcus gave his view of the whole incident with Jokic.

“I was upset, I was annoyed that he hit him from behind. I told him he should never turn his back on that motherfucker”.
