Ja Morant could’ve simply enjoyed himself by being with his entourage that was surrounded by beautiful ladies, but he chose to make things worse for himself by going live on Instagram and showing off his gun.
Shotgun Willies is a Glendale, Colorado strip club that has now become infamous because of the Memphis Grizzlies superstar. It’s where Ja Morant filmed that infamous live stream where he flashed a gun. This got him into deep trouble with the NBA and the Memphis Grizzlies, who suspended him for at least 6 games until they finished their internal investigation.
This past week, the New York Post added to the incident by doing a deep dive into what went on inside the strip club with Morant and his crew.
Morant gave out $50,000 in tips as they posted a picture of him getting a lap dance with money covering the floor.
Via NY Post:
“The whole room is full of money — it’s literally a pile. You’d need a rake,” according to one club insider who witnessed the eye-popping hardwood scene.
The vaunted 23-year-old point guard, who re-signed with the Grizzlies last year in a 5-year extension deal that could be worth up to $231 million, shelled out at least $50,000 in cash tips in the two-night booty bender, two employees told The Post.”
That happened two days before the infamous incident. At that moment, some dancers were said to be “absolutely terrified” by Morant pulling out a gun while in the VIP room.
The gun, however, “absolutely terrified” Shotgun girls in the backroom, claimed one dancer who wasn’t in the VIP room but heard complaints from her coworkers.
“He pulled the white boy excuse card: ‘I’m just going through a lot right now, so I’m going to act [like] a fool and put other people’s lives at risk,’” she said.
Glendale Police investigated Morant but declined to press charges. He may be free from charges, but he isn’t in the clear when it comes to him returning to the court. He has not played in a single game since that night.
There is no word if he will return, which would throw a monkey wrench in the plans for a team that is looked at as a title contender in the Western Conference.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
