Ja Morant just doesn’t get it.
The Memphis Grizzlies star mimicked a gun while celebrating a teammate’s three-point make hours after a police report said Morant allegedly exposed a gun after punching a teenager “12 or 13 times” during a pickup basketball game last summer.
Morant was on the bench at the time as the team took on the Houston Rockets. Following a Desmond Bane made three pointer, Morant then exploded in celebration on the sidelines, using his fingers to mimic a gun motion.
The Grizzlies defeated the Rockets 113-99, moving to 38-23 on the season.
In the report earlier this week, Morant reportedly punched a teenager in the head “12 to 13 times” in a pickup basketball game before he went inside his home and emerged with a gun in his waist and his hand on the weapon.
Morant told police he had acted in self-defense and filed a police report after the teenager allegedly said he would come back after the altercation and “light this place up like fireworks.”
The new allegation comes fresh off a previous controversy where the Indiana Pacers stated associates of Morant pointed a laser at them from an SUV that was carrying Morant.
The NBA investigated the incident and found that no “individual threatened others with a weapon.”WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
