Marcus David Morris passed away suddenly in the Palace of Auburn Hills on the evening of March 28 at the hands of Miami Heat forward James Patrick Johnson.
He is survived by his four brothers, Donte, Blake, David and twin Markieff, though the latter is currently battling for his life. Johnson’s murderous dunk was so vicious, the soul-siphoning slam not only killed Marcus but put his twin into a coma despite being across the country in Los Angeles at the time.
Morris was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Thomasine “Angel” Morris. The tragedy was so gruesome, it was the final nail in the coffin of The Palace of Auburn Hills, which will be shut down after the season.
