Everyone is amped up for Super Bowl 52 between the Eagles and the Celtics. Of course, sometimes NBA players are loyal to their favorite childhood team. Last week Timberwolves big man Karl-Anthony Towns wasn’t shy about rooting for his beloved Philadelphia Eagles when they played the Vikings in the NFC Title game. Now it appears Celtics forward Marcus Morris is stiring the pot when he yelled E.A.G.L.E.S chant. Celtics head coach Brad Stevens gave a hilarious response to Morris’ comments.
“He’ll be suspended, Go Pats!”
Morris grew up an Eagles fan but also interestingly enough rooted for the Celtics as well. Morris let the Eagles chant fly after the Celtics routed the Hawks 119-110 Friday night where Celtics guard Terry Rozier scored a team-high 31 points. The Celtics moved to 38-15 on the season where they hold the number one seed in the Eastern Conference.
Boston’s cultural dynamic is an interesting one when you compare Brad Stevens and Bill Belichick. Both head coaches of their respective teams don’t look anything like former players but rather quirky geniuses. Oddly enough, the Celtics will not have off during Super Bowl Sunday as they will host the Portland Trail Blazers in Boston. Luckily the tip-off will occur at Noon so they will have plenty of time to settle back to relax and watch the game.
The long waited Super Bowl can’t get here soon enough. Vendetta Media has put together great content so you can kick back and read about the big game. If you’re an Eagles fan, make sure you read Harrison Hunter’s column of why Philadelphia will win the Super Bowl. If you’re a Patriots fan, I have you covered with an extensive preview of New England. Also, don’t miss the interview where the two Co-Founders get together to discuss the big game.
