LeBron James Bold Comment About Ja Morant Went Viral

LeBron James has been around for a while and he can definitely recognize a true basketball mind like Ja Morant. The Los Angeles Lakers are out of playoff contention and didn’t even make the play-in tournament. LeBron has plenty of time to do whatever he wants, so he uses his time off to watch the rest of the NBA compete.

Morant has been a real beast this season and he is doing his best to take his team to the NBA Finals. The young player has been making the best headlines. His Memphis Grizzlies had an impeccable season and Morant has a change to snatch his first ring.

The team made the second series of the playoffs and Morant plays against Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors. It’s a tricky situation, but Morant is getting the best of it. The Warriors won Game 1 of the series and Morant was here to give them a big surprise. He scored 47 points in 41 minutes to lead his team to a win. The Grizzlies won Game 2 and this win only added fuel to the fire.

LeBron James impressed by Ja Morant

LeBron followed Morant throughout the entire season. He heard people say the Grizzlies star is the “most improved player”. He prefers saying Murant was a “flat-out star and always have been.”

“JA so damn tough!!!! There’s no way Ja should even have been in MIP talks,” LeBron said. “This guy is a flat-out (star emoji) and always have been!! Real basketball (brains) know. Not the majority of dweebs who don’t even watch basketball on those voting ballots.”Morant joined the NBA in the 2019 NBA Draft. In his rookie season he averaged 18 points per game. In his third season with the Grizzlies, Morant averaged 27.4 points per game while going 50% from the floor.

The Grizzlies played five playoff games so far and Morant made sure he delivers 30+ every night. His game is sharp, but the Grizzlies will have to try extra hard to beat their opponent. It’s a tough series for both teams. Who is winning this one?
