Ja Morant’s Father Tee Morant’s Has a Message For All of His Haters

For some reason, Ja Morant’s dad, Tee Morant, has been getting a lot of criticism for the way he’s supported his son during the playoffs.

There are people who don’t like the way he cheers. A Black man that raised a son made it to the NBA. Sounds pretty asinine right?

Tee has heard and seen the criticism and has a message for the people that don’t like it.

In a conversation he had with Andscape’s Marc J. Spears, Tee says

“People recognizing me is new. It is strange, but I’m cool with it,” Tee Morant told Andscape. “I was about to go over to Ja’s hotel. And when I was waiting on the Uber, a dude was just sitting in a car, just looking at me. I kept on moving around, but he kept on eyeing me down. So, I was about to say, ‘Hey, man, you all right? You good?’

“So, at the time I went to get in my Uber, he [rolled] his window down and said, ‘Hey, aren’t you Tee Morant?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, you could have said that earlier, man, instead of staring at me.’ It’s weird. It’s new. I’m cool.”

“Somebody put on social media that I was annoying right after Game 1 because I embraced [Steph] Curry, had a conversation with him and Klay Thompson as well. And then after that, all of a sudden, I’m annoying? I’m in the player’s space? It’s sportsmanship to me but it was like, ‘Wow.’ So, I’m annoying for supporting my child?”

“If you know me, my motto is, and pardon my French, ‘That don’t do [expletive] to my blood pressure.’ Meaning if somebody’s thinking what I’m doing is negative or saying negative things about me or whatever, I couldn’t care less because it don’t do [expletive] to my blood pressure. I’m going to keep being me because that’s all I know how to do,”

He was a lot nicer than he had to be because all he’s doing is supporting his son and gets crap about it.
