He has recently proved to everybody that he isn’t a one-season wonder by dropping a 52-point performance against the San Antonio Spurs.
Ja Morant putting up a heck of a season with the Memphis Grizzlies
Ja Morant has been the face of the NBA this season for the Memphis Grizzlies. He has single-handedly won games for the Grizzlies this season, and Ja Morant is part of the reason why the Grizzlies are sitting 3rd in the Western Conference with a record of 43-20 and are on a 2-game winning streak.
Ja Morant showcased his exceptional dunking talent in the NBA All-Stars game, he didn’t even enter the Dunk contest for this year, and the NBA fans are begging him to join the Dunk Contest next season after watching the most subpar and dunk contest. Ja Morant was often considered as a one-season wonder but he has continued to defy all the criticism. In the recent game against the San Antonio Spurs, Ja Morant dropped 52-points, 2 assists, and 7 rebounds. What is more outstanding was the buzzer-beater where he received the ball and shot a basket, all while being in the air, how crazy was that from the Grizzlies star Guard.
Ja Morant is inspired by NBA legends to keep improving his game
Ja Morant has been a wonderful Guard for the Memphis Grizzlies, just being 22 years old he is seen to be one who will dominate the game for a long time. He has been averaging 27.6 points, 6.6 assists, and 5.9 rebounds. In a recent interview with a podcast ‘all the smoke’ he has opened up about how he has been developing his game, which players he looks up to keep improving various aspects, and his overall development, because he has more than a decade to play in the NBA.
“I’ve studied every top guard that has played the game, I watched a lot of (Steve) Nash, I watched a lot of (Jason) Kidd, I studied Penny (Hardaway), AI (Allen Iverson), you know for that killer mentality. Then watching Rondo with that Celtics team, how he was facilitating the offense, you know getting guys open looks, that’s what kinda made me fall in love with passing the ball, just to be able to affect the game in so many ways, I feel like it makes you more dangerous.” Said Ja Morant on the podcast All the Smoke.
