Ja Moranthas walked into deep waters once more, and the NBA star’s situation isn’t looking too good. He was discovered with a gun while live-streaming on Instagram a few months ago. He was given an eight-game suspension and told to attend rehabilitation. Morant accepted his errors and made them public. He was sorry for what he had done, but he soon fell back into his old ways.

The Memphis Grizzlies star and his pal Davonte Pack were grooving out to one of NBA YoungBoy’s songs while they were live on Instagram. Pack once pointed the camera at Ja Morant who was brandishing a gun during the live stream. Pack immediately switched the camera back toward Morant after noticing that he was pointing the rifle in all directions. The two of them later pretended nothing had happened. Morant was seen holding the gun, though, in the distance.

The exact scene in the video where Morant brazenly brandished the rifle around was pinned by a fan page. Y’all had better not suspend my man once more; let him rock @NBA @ESPNNBA @espn @wojespn, read one of the threads.The supporter persisted in blaming LeBron James for influencing Morant. They said that you, @KingJames, were partially to blame for sending my man to the streets during the playoffs.In the opening round, James and the Lakers defeated the Grizzlies. Because of Dillon Brooks‘ attitude toward James, things were a little heated between the two squads.
LeBron James taught Ja Morant and the Grizzlies a lesson during the 2023 NBA Playoffs
The Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Lakers met in the opening round of the playoffs. Since LA had just participated in the play-in competition, they weren’t considered favorites to win the series. However, there was a period when Memphis’ situation deteriorated worse. There was a lot of tension between Brooks and James at the beginning of the series. Such things frequently cause teams to veer off track.
Unfortunately, to add to the pressure, Ja Morant re-injured his hand. The former Most Improved Player of the Year is known for being a great attacker to the basket. As predicted by experts, this attribute became his worst enemy. On the other hand, LeBron made it a point to teach the young group a lesson and that is exactly what he did. Memphis exited the playoffs after the Lakers closed out the series in six games.
For his bad attitude and reckless behavior, the Grizzlies terminated Brooks after the series. They declared that under no circumstances would they bring him back. However, supporters are now concerned that Morant may suffer the same fate. Until further notice, he has been barred from all Grizzlies operations. The league is also looking into the matter right now.
