Ja Morant will most likely become one of the faces of the NBA franchise in the near future. The player had one of his best runs in the league since he got drafted in 2019. He helped lead the Memphis Grizzlies to the playoffs and his monumental performances did not stop there. He continued to dominate during the first and the second round of the playoffs.

During the regular season, he led the team to the second seed in the Western Conference and landed number two overall in the league as well with 56 wins and 26 losses. Morant also had the honors of becoming a late-season MVP candidate but he earned the league’s Most Improved Player of the Year award. From averaging under 20 points per game, he jumped onto scoring 27.4 points, 5.7 rebounds, and 6.7 assists on 49.3% shooting.

Ja Morant has always expressed his no-quit and dominant mindset ever since he set foot into the league two seasons ago. Most of his peers did not specifically like his attitude, but this season brought him the respect he truly deserves. After a long and hard battle in the playoffs, a fan of the Grizzlies point guard by the name of Jade shared her reason why the player inspires her.

In a video uploaded by Bleacher Report on Instagram, the fan had shown how the issue of cerebral palsy has caused her pain. But in order to recover, she said that Ja played a major part in her motivation. “I told my mom that this is my work in the dark that @JaMorant talk about,” she said. Cerebral Palsy is a disorder caused by abnormal brain development which makes movements less controllable and very improper. This issue requires constant physical and medical treatment.

Ja Morant makes a final push against the Warriors but fell short of the series

The series between the Golden State Warriors and Memphis Grizzlies saw a clash between two generations of the league. However, the matchup flared up emotions between both teams and the games were all the more intense. But the Warriors were able to achieve the closeout in Game 6 simply because they possess far more experience.

Ja Morant’s injury may have been a huge reason why Memphis had not been too active towards the end. During Game 3, the player was fouled by Jordan Poole who accidentally hit his knee while defending. Morant’s knee has been a problem in the past and this incident reignited the old lingering issue. He was sidelined for the rest of the games which ultimately allowed the Warriors to win.
