NBA player Marcus Morris Sub in for His Twin Brother, Markieff after he went down with an ankle injury in Game 1.

In the 2017 NBA playoffs a player named Markieff Morris, who at the time played for the Washington Wizards, hurt his ankle in game one. This was only 11minutes into the game and he didn’t return. The injury looked like he would be out for a couple weeks and no one expected him to play game 2. But, he showed up game 2 and played as if he was never injured, in fact, had his best game statistically of the playoffs to that point.

Here’s where it gets interesting, Markieff Morris has an identical twin brother named Marcus who also plays in the NBA. His brother was playing for the Pistons, who were eliminated from the playoffs already.

The theory is that Marcus played for his brother. Both brothers have the exact same tattoos and don’t have any super apparent different traits.

THE VERGE TECH SURVEY 2020

Ahead of the election year, The Verge polled Americans about which big tech companies they trust with their personal information — and which ones should be broken up Americans believe that Google, Amazon, Apple, Microsoft, Netflix, and YouTube have an overall positive effect on society. (They’re more likely to think that Twitter, Slack, Instagram, and Facebook have an overall negative effect.) Microsoft leads big tech companies in the number of Americans who say they trust it, at 75 percent of survey respondents. Amazon is close behind, at 73 percent. Pulling up the rear is Facebook: just 41 percent of Americans say they trust the company to safeguard their personal information.
