Marcus Smart Cracks Joke About Marcus Morris Needing To Change Name

Given the number of high-profile names on the Boston Celtics’ roster, it’s often tough to remember who’s currently the longest-tenured member of the franchise.

That honor goes to Marcus Smart, who was drafted sixth overall by the Celtics in 2014. Smart unquestionably is one of the Celtics’ leaders, but the high-motored guard believes one of his teammates should change their name in order to further emphasize his stature within the club.

The “Sr.” on Morris’ jersey is a new addition, as the veteran forward welcomed his first child to the world in late-July. And despite his pleas, we have a feeling Smart will be fine if Morris continues to rock his new-look nameplate.
