Grizzlies Ja Morant has recently gotten some weird criticism for “acting hood” when he’s not from the streets.
It started after a Twitter exchange with Draymond Green where Ja said that he and the Grizzlies would be on the Warriors block for a Christmas Day game.
For some reason, people thought he was being fake and Ja responded to a user by saying that’s who he is and the money isn’t going to change him.
That still hasn’t stopped people from giving their input. One person, in particular, wants Ja to stop acting hood and that person is Kendrick Perkins.
While in spaces, Perk tells Ja to stop acting hood because he and the Grizzlies are not gangsters or hood. It is interesting coming from Big Perk who just threatened to beat up Draymond Green.
“Hey Draymond, you good? The f–k you talking about? Didn’t you just win your fourth championship? What the f–k you worried about me for? What you mad? You mad because I’m doing it my way and it’s happening to work?” Perkins asked in a video.
“Forget the old media. Forget the new media. I’ma stand by the old law. Right? The old law says all that disrespect and all that ho s–t of calling someone a c–n, man you got me f–ked up. [There] ain’t nothing a c–n about me. I ain’t no c–n. There ain’t none of that. Straight up!”
“And here’s the thing, dawg. We all know you’re all bark and no bite,” Perkins said. “We all know this! The NBA brothers know this. A lot of them that’s talking about you behind your back with the whistles know this. They know you’re not gonna do nothing. This is proven. This is facts. So stop with all the tough talk.”
“You can talk about me as an ESPN analyst. You can talk about my takes. You can talk about everything you want to do. I don’t give a f–k about that. But what you’re not gonna do is you’re not gonna disrespect me and call me no motherf–king c–n. And I’m gonna stand on that. You talk about standing on something. I’m standing on that. That’s what I’m not gonna be, and especially by you when we all know you not gon’ do nothing … We know that. It’s proven. We know you ain’t gonna bust a grape in a fruit fight. We know you ain’t gonna pour milk on cereal. We know you ain’t gonna listen to go snap, crackle and pop.
“But that c–ning s–t, man you got me f–ked up. We could keep it entertainment, we could keep it ESPN, whatever you want to do, but we ain’t doing that c–n s–t homeboy. Real talk. Carry on.”
Seems like it’s going to be the Grizzlies against everyone this offseason.
