Even though his Grizzlies lost to the Golden State Warriors in Game 1 of the second round on Sunday, Morant was still impressing the legions of fans watching.
But a few years ago, few people in power were impressed by Morant.
In fact, many didn’t even know who he was.

As highlighted by Ben Stinar – and then retweeted by Morant himself – the star player’s recruiting profile from high school was completely blank.
No stats, no ratings, no reviews, not even a profile picture.
The world really didn’t have any idea about Morant – and the skills and talent he would bring to the league.
Morant had yet another stunning performance on Sunday, putting up 34 points, 9 rebounds, and 10 assists.
His team lost by just one point, which is heartbreaking but also proof that these teams are evenly matched.
Therefore, this will definitely be a series – and will definitely be exciting to watch.
Morant has been waiting for this moment.
This season, he has secured an admirable average of 21.2 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 7.1 assists.
He has also stepped up his game in nearly every other way, including leading his team and taking on the extra pressure of being superstar with ease and grace.
He’s also created some must-see highlights throughout the year.
Morant is one of the best doing it right now, no matter how this series turns out.
It’s wild to think that only a few years ago he was a complete unknown.
Now he’s a Grizzlies legend.
