The Memphis Grizzlies have to be quite concerned about Ja Morant.
The young superstar was once again spotted apparently flashing a gun on social media, leading to an immediate investigation from the team.
Morant has been ordered to stay away from all team activities while the investigation is ongoing, and people around the sports industry are once again urging him to stop acting out like that.
That includes former NFL player Keyshawn Johnson, who took some time out of his show to address Morant’s situation.

Johnson reminded him that he actually grew up in the streets and that people from the streets would die to have an opportunity like Morant’s.
Johnson added that everybody knows Morant didn’t grow up on the streets and cited that he’s just looking foolish, not to mention the fact that he could squander his entire fortune in the blink of an eye.
Morant is one of the league’s rising stars, but his reputation has taken a massive hit.
Morant is one of the most impactful young players in the league, and he could be one of the faces of the NBA and make generational wealth.
But that’s not going to happen until he puts an end to these constant antics and starts handling himself and his promising career more seriously.
