These two have played together since they were born seven minutes apart. The only way to distinguish one from the other is by their games, with Marcus being the more polished scorer and Markieff the better rebounder.
Most people thought Marcus would go first, but Phoenix, in an attempt to rectify its poor rebounding rate, took the older Morris brother Markieff instead.
Marcus was so happy for his brother that he started crying, perhaps a little sad that he would not be spending the next three years on the same team as his twin. But he need not have worried, because eight minutes later, his name was called by the Houston Rockets.
When was the last time twin brothers went back to back in a draft of any sport? You'd have to go back to the 1999 NHL Draft (the Sedin twins).
So while 1,200 miles now separate Markieff and Marcus, they still stayed as close as possible to one another in the NBA Draft. Who knows, maybe after free agency they can end up on the same team once again.
Hey, if Jimmy Butler can fight his way to the first round of the NBA Draft, anything is possible.
