Ja Morant has been going through quite a few issues as of late. If you remember, Morant was suspended for eight games for flashing a gun on Instagram. Subsequently, he did again just a few weeks ago. Now, the NBA is contemplating a very lengthy suspension. Overall, this could derail the Memphis Grizzlies next season, especially if he is gone for 82 games. Moreover, Adam Silver has made it clear that he will only make an official ruling after the NBA Finals. He also claimed that the league has uncovered some new and troubling information.
Needless to say, things are not very good for Ja Morant right now. There aren’t too many people out there trying to vouch for him. Instead, a lot of people are trying to distance themselves from the young man. However, he does have some teammates who completely have his back. For instance, Jaren Jackson Jr. was on Paul George’s Podcast P podcast, where he spoke about the issues with Ja. During the podcast, Jackson gave an update on his teammate, while also delivering some praise.
Ja Morant Finally Gets Positive Reinforcement
“He’s good,” Jackson Jr. simply explained. “He’s I think just growing up with this much attention on you, especially being this young. It’s a lot to deal with. […] Dude’s great. People always gotta understand that everybody human. That’s my brother though, no matter what. I stand my brother and I think that’s the lesson everybody should take away from this.” Needless to say, it must be nice for Ja to get at least some kind of praise these days. For the most part, it has felt like his career has been shrouded in nothing but pure negativity.
With the NBA Finals heading into Game 3, Ja Morant will be anxiously awaiting his fate. Many throughout the league believe either a half-season or full-season suspension is coming. Only time will tell whether or not this is the case. Let us know what you think of all this, in the comments section down below.
