The Athletic reported yesterday that someone or Ja Morant himself allegedly pointed a red laser sight gun at players from the Pacers after they got into an altercation after the game.
Morant’s friend, who seemed to start everything, was banned from the arena for a year.
The Grizzlies are running around like they are Tupac.
It is one thing to trash talk on the court. It is another thing to allegedly point silenced pistols at your opponents and their traveling party heads.
This all started on the night of January 29th.
The Grizzlies were playing the Pacers at home. Ja Morant’s father, Tee, and one of Morant’s best friends, Davonte Pack, were getting into it with Pacers players.
At some point, Pack stepped onto the court to up the escalation and was eventually thrown out of the game.
Moran was asked about the chippiness and had this to say.
Little did we know it was a lot deeper than that at the time. According to The Athletic, someone in Ja’s crew pointed a gun at Pacers players with a red laser sight on it while they were in the parking lot.
The NBA investigated and said they couldn’t find evidence of a gun, but they banned some of Ja Morant’s entourage members from coming to games.
Shannon Sharpe, who had his issues with the Grizzlies, Ja Morant, and Tee Morant, decided to speak on the NBA Investigation.
Sharpe said what many other people had said: Ja is not a gangsta, and he needs to stop pretending to be a thug. Sharpe said that no one thinks Ja is gangsta and that the Grizzlies chirp too much for a team that has done nothing in the NBA.
