Off-court fights and Twitter are a match made in heaven. This season has seen some major off-court fights; the biggest one being Nikola Jokic’s brothers and Markieff Morris’ twin, Marcus Morris. After Jokic and Morris got into a scuffle on the court, Jokic’s brothers created a Twitter account to publicly threaten Markieff’s brother Marcus. However, this time it is a LeBron James fan who put out a heartening message asking everyone to rally behind the Lakers during these tough times.
