One of the Boston Celtics' most physically gifted players recently discussed his experiences with mental health with ESPN's Jackie MacMullan.
Marcus Morris, who's entering his eighth NBA season, is featured in MacMullan's second installment of a five-part series on the NBA's mental health situation. Morris' candid words started with the Philadelphia native's upbringings with his twin brother, Markieff Morris, who plays for the Washington Wizards.
MacMullan mentioned that both players have told her that they've experienced battles with depression, but that only Marcus was comfortable enough to discuss them in the story.
