Memphis Grizzlies basketball star Ja Morant has caused a stir on social media after his old Instagram account resurfaced, revealing some unexpected and ironic images.

NBA Twitter fans were quick to respond to these hilarious pictures. Fans found the pictures and captions very much fun.



Some fans are making memes with his old pictures.


However, many fans are also tweeting in favor of the Memphis Grizzlies star.

A fan tweeted claiming Morant’s old picture got viral because the media hates successful black men.

A fan was complaining about bringing up Morant’s old IG account, saying it was the reason they keep their children away from social platforms.


A fan expressed outrage by asking all to go viral other celebrity’s posts just like they did with Morants.

With an average of 27.1 points, 8.2 assists, and 6.0 rebounds per game, the two-time All-Star had one of his best seasons ever this past season. Memphis has maintained their No. 2 seed in the West Conference, while Morant has been absent thanks to a 3-2 record. His return will be crucial for the team battling for playoff positioning as it looks to win a title this season.

Morant has not yet responded to the resurfaced IG photos.
