NBA world reacts on Ja Morant’s Oscar deserving performance

The last night could be the night of the Memphis Grizzlies. Ja Morant tried his best to show the world his supremacy. Fans were amazed while enjoying Morant’s showcase on the court.

Morant should be nominated for an Oscar, an ESPY, and the NFL MVP award for his effort against the Pelicans as per the NBA universe.

The rising sensation did it again on Tuesday night when the Memphis Grizzlies played the New Orleans Pelicans, producing another viral video. His “switch-hand dunk” (or whatever you want to call it) exemplified his incredibleness to a tee.

However, let’s dissect the play in order to fully grasp his excellence.

Ja Morant, on a possession in the third quarter, spotted an open shot and sprinted for the hoop maliciously. Although Pelicans guard CJ McCollum made an effort to defend the basket, he couldn’t stop Morant from slamming the ball in, thanks to his incredible speed and quickness.

Immediately after the insane Ja Morant’s last shot, NBA fans swarmed Twitter with their responses.

The potential that Ja Morant has on the court is terrifying. He’s scary enough already, but he’s becoming a lethal three-level scorer, making him almost impossible to stop. As he faced the Pelicans, Morant was averaging 28.8 points per game on 48.0% shooting from the field in the 2022-23 NBA season. He also has a three-point percentage of above 40%. This means that defenders have to decide how to best deal with Ja Morant, who can exploit holes in man’s defense and hit threes when given space.

The Grizzlies will need more from Morant, mainly because Desmond Bane will be out for a while with an injury. Morant’s current play indicates that he may soon produce even more mind-boggling efforts.
