There is no denying that JA Morant is one of the most underrates natural athletes in the modern-day NBA. A player who has not only led Memphis Grizzlies season after season, but his loyalty is just another subject not spoken much about. However, the athleticism of the 22-years-old guard has made the most devastating of big men come to their knees. Having already showed what he is capable of, Morant produced another magical play in Nuggets vs Grizzlies.
In the past couple of years, Morant has not only been an asset for the Grizzlies on the offensive end but his straight-up blocks have made him one of the most reliable options during the clutch. In addition, being over 6 feet, it is hard to agree that an athlete can be so fast and energetic throughout the rounds of four quarters.
Watch JA Morant making a mockery of Denver Nuggets’ Defense
With the Grizzlies failing to make past the playoff in the first-round last season, it seems like JA Morant is determined to change those stats since the early days in the NBA 2021-22 Season. In most recent game for the Grizzlies, against the Nikola Jokic led Denver Nuggets, the 22-years-old made everyone realise of his absolute unreal natural abilities.
With less than 10 seconds remaining to end the first half of the game between the Nuggets and Grizzlies, JA Morant decided to take the initiative in his own hands. Wherein he ran past two Nuggets’ defenders and twisted 360 degrees to score a peach of a dunk which made the fans come to their feet.
Having said that, as of writing JA Morant has looked not at his very best in the most recent game against the Nuggets. He has managed to score less than 20 points with the third quarter coming to an end. However, if it is not him, the opportunity to lead the team on the offensive end has been taken up by Jaren Jackson Jr and Kyle Anderson off the bench.
