Shannon Sharpe reignites hostility with Grizzlies’ Ja Morant following latest IG live gun controversy

The situation is getting more bitter for Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant as his old critic Shannon Sharpe started to blast cannonballs at the 23-year-old.

The Grizzlies star got two suspensions already, and the NBA is still investigating his notorious Instagram live with the gun incident. After issuing an apology statement, Morant tried to flee away from online backlash by deactivating his social media accounts.

However, that couldn’t save him anymore from the Shannon-cannon, as the former NFL professional finally got a chance to bash him.

What did Shannon Sharpe say about Ja Morant?

Their feud went on for a while; the 54-year-old got into a severe altercation with Tee Morant, Ja Morant’s father, and since then, Sharpe has considered himself a prominent critic of the Morant family. Previously, in his show “Skip and Shannon: UNDISPUTED,” Sharpe warned Ja to be cautious about his action; however, the arrogant NBA player didn’t pay much attention to the former NFL veteran turned sports critic.

After Friday night’s controversial appearance on live, the three-time Super Bowl champion got his perfect retaliation. “Anything interesting happen while I was asleep last nite? Fill me in Twitter,” Shannon tweeted.

He didn’t stop there; the former tight end took it personally when a fan blamed him for the 23-year-old’s action. “Now it’s my fault Ja acting like this? Got it,” he wrote.

One fan suggested he be a “role model” rather than just a critic, but Shannon delivered a perfect reply, “Role models only wrk IF* person listens and takes the good advice being offered. Hope he figures it out.”

It seems the eight-time pro bowler waged an online war against the Grizzlies star and must’ve felt a winning vibe with so much happening in such a short span. In January, he had left the court during a game between the Grizzlies and Lakers due to a verbal altercation with Ja Morant’s father.

  1. This in no way is Shannon Sharpe’s fault. Please. There were/are way too many ppl surrounding Ja that saw n knew what was happening and did nothing! To some degree the team/FO is complicit as well. We da fans hold some blame. The day he was drafted we anointed him team and city savior. We started making plans for a 🏆 parade, yet we/Ja hasn’t earned it yet? Not to mention a 20-21 yr old kid making $200m. The pressures n stress attributed to that, cmon folks. Some of us can’t handle stress n pressure and we’re 40,50 and older. So stop it. This may have been a blessing in disguise, but if nothing a life saver. Get well Ja. 🙌🏾🙏🏾🤎

  2. Sharpe needs to sit his old “irrelevant ass” down and go on out to pasture where he belongs! What a hero! Bash a brother at his low point! NO RESPECT for his brother or the game!!

  3. Ha has to dump the entourage, and think about his future, as a young child he’s immature, now as a young man he must become the person who takes care of his Family !!! He must stop the nonsense, and be come who he’s supposed to be !!!! Set up your crew as a business and become the Man you’re to be !!! By pre-foreclosure homes, fix them up and rent out . Buy the block !!!
