Ja Morant is on springs, he has proven it since his arrival in the league. And after his superhuman counter to the Lakers, the leader of the Grizzlies almost put it back with a jump which he alone has the secret in the league. His opponents could only laugh at this action.
Over the matches, Ja Morant gives reason to those who made him the n ° 1 of the Draft 2019 … So yes, Zion Williamson is an exceptional talent, a player with a unique profile in NBA history, but the inside of the Pelicans is too often injured to live up to his status as a young superstar. And with weight issues that unfortunately seem to be recurring, it’s impossible to know if he will return to his best.
And while Zion is in the infirmary, Ja Morant establishes himself as one of the best playmakers in the league, if not the best. Kyrie Irving only plays away games for the Nets, Stephen curry knows a huge air gap at the level of the address, when Damian Lillard and Trae Young evolve in teams which do not advance. The leader of the Grizzlies not only has the stats going, he also has the collective results.
Ja Morant on the verge of blocking a 3-point
And this Tuesday, the future All-Star cemented his place among the league’s elite by getting the best of the Warriors and the Chef. He was once again decisive with 29 points, 8 assists, 5 rebounds and 2 blocks, and as usual, he wowed fans with his exceptional athleticism. On a long-distance shot from Damion Lee, Ja Morant rose as only he can in the NBA.

After his monumental counter against the Lakers, Ja Morant almost did it again with that lunar attempt at Damion Lee’s shot… He was still in the racket when the Warriors’ full-back received the bullet, and yet it came close to being sort of one of the defensive actions of the season. Moreover, it is not unlike Zion Williamson in Duke, who had achieved this feat.
Ja Morant has not finished surprising fans with his athleticism from another planet. He jumps high, and uses it perfectly on both sides of the court. Hopefully his knees will hold up for years to come.
