The Boston Celtics have a little bit of everything on their roster.
While the C’s feature tremendous finesse players like Kyrie Irving and Jayson Tatum, they also boast some power players with the likes of Jaylen Brown and Aron Baynes. There’s also no shortage of grittiness with this Boston team, especially when it comes to the green’s bench.
Marcus Morris takes great pride in the attitude the Celtics’ second unit possesses, which led to him giving the reserves the nickname BWA (Bench With Attitude). Marcus Smart surely doesn’t lack attitude, so it comes as no surprise that the pesky guard is all in favor of Morris’ nickname.
In a surprise to no Celtics fan, Morris isn’t waiting for the regular season to start flaunting his attitude. The veteran forward already has sent a stern warning to opposing teams’ benches and had some choice words for Tristan Thompson after the Cavaliers forward stated the Eastern Conference still belongs to Cleveland.
