The police performed a welfare check on Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant on Wednesday after he published a series of troubling and concerning posts on social media.
The authorities reported that Morant was fine and that his posts were not related to his well-being but rather his taking a break from social media.
On Thursday, Shannon Sharpe responded to Morant’s latest issues, saying that he is not surprised that the cops were called on him.
“It’s so dramatic, it’s so theatrical. A normal, prudent person is going to take it like the police did,” Sharpe said.
He would later go on to talk about Morant’s future and his absence from the internet.

All of this comes as Morant faces serious consequences for the latest live stream that showed him brandishing a firearm.
Just months after doing that the first time, Morant could now be suspended by the NBA for months.
Multiple people have predicted he could end up missing up to half of the season.
His career is in a tough spot and it’s not because of his basketball skills.
Sharpe and his co-host Skip Bayless agree that maybe it’s best that Morant spends some time away from posting online.
Sharpe said that it was maybe social media that led him to make such big mistakes so many times.
After his first gun-toting incident, Morant stepped back and took some time to himself.
His latest departure from social media suggests that he will do that again.
Based on what the NBA decides, he may have a considerable amount of time to focus on himself.NEXT: Ja Morant Posts Cryptic Messages On Social Media
