Ja Morant truly does not get it.
Ja Morant is once again the talk of the NBA this week after the Memphis Grizzlies superstar received a big suspension from the league after his second gun scandal.
After he was suspended for flashing a gun on social media while in a strip club earlier this year, he would once again flash another one while on Instagram Live with his friend.
In an attempt to show his close ones that he wasn’t doing anything wrong or illegal, Morant recorded himself holding a toy gun one day after the infamous Instagram Live clip went viral.
Here is the video:
As you can see, the video shows the Grizzlies star holding the gun, which turned out to be a lighter. He even showed himself lighting a candle to prove it.
“You hold it, and everything comes out,” he says while doing the explanation.
Morant’s camp reportedly claimed that the gun was just a toy a couple of weeks ago, but not many bought the story at the time.
However, seeing as how he already got in trouble for having a gun on social media, this was still a dumb decision on his part.
The league announced on Friday that Ja will be suspended for the first 25 games of the 2023-24 NBA season, meaning he could make his debut in December. Ja Morant would release another statement vowing to be better while apologizing to the league and the fans, especially the kids who look up to him.
Luckily for him, Nike has decided to stick by his side. It’s evident he will not have any more chances after this.
