If you're frustrated by the Phoenix Suns' 3-9 start to the season, just remember: At least Markieff Morris doesn't play here anymore.

Morris, whom the Suns selected with the 13th overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, fell out of favor in the Valley after calling out Suns fans, getting into fights with his coach and teammates and getting in trouble off the court alongside his twin brother.

Well, Morris is back to taunting his team's very own fans -- only this time as a member of the Washington Wizards, to whom the Suns traded Morris midway through last season.

In the fourth quarter of the Wizards' home game against the New York Knicks on Thursday, Morris badly missed the entire basket on a 3-point attempt. When fans expressed their disapproval, the 6-foot-10, 245-pounder egged them on by encouraging them to boo even more loudly.

For the game, Morris missed seven of his 11 field-goal attempts, including both of his 3-point attempts, for a total of eight points. For the season, Morris is shooting just 40.8 percent from the field -- his first mark in four years.

The Wizards won the game anyway. But Markieff's actions serve as a reminder to Suns fans: Don't bother missing this guy.
