Morant’s path is eventful.
Ja Morant of the Memphis Grizzlies was caught dancing with a gun while appearing on an acquaintance’s SNS live broadcast on the 14th (hereinafter Korean time).
Morant, a young ace of Memphis, is considered a superstar who will lead the future NBA along with Luka Doncic, Jayson Tatum, and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. Coming from the second pick in the 2019 draft, Morant has been impressive since his debut season, leading Memphis to the Western Conference powerhouse.
Morant, who has produced numerous highlight films based on his explosive athleticism. Combining not only his skills but also star quality, Morant was expanding his position in the NBA based on his own distinct color.
However, as rumors have been steadily rising lately, Morant is getting closer to a problem child and a villain than a superstar. In particular, exposure of firearms after turning on SNS live broadcasting at a club party during the season in March put a focus on building a negative image of Morant.
Criticism rained down on Morant for his wayward ways, and the league suspended him. Morant, who was a candidate for the All-NBA team, wasted his chance due to the gun issue and did not qualify for the Rose Rule. He could have earned close to $38 million more if he had benefited from Rose Rule.
Morant, who temporarily disabled his social media account, expressed remorse and received counseling treatment in Florida without accompanying the team. In an interview after completing the playoff schedule, he also said that he would grow further on and off the court as a team leader.토토사이트
Morant said he would take full responsibility for his actions. However, it is doubtful whether the time for reflection had a significant effect. About 70 days after the controversy, he appeared again with a gun on an SNS live broadcast, causing controversy.
Morant, who was dancing and singing music together on an acquaintance’s SNS broadcast, took out a gun as if he couldn’t control his excitement, and the flustered acquaintance hurriedly lowered the camera to cover the screen.
It was a moment when Morant’s promise to become more mature was overshadowed. The reaction of fans who watched the video was also quite negative. Now, no matter what he says, it seems that it will not be easy to gain the fans’ trust in related issues.
