“The gun wasn’t mine” Ja Morant makes shocking revelation following game suspension over strip club scandal

The Memphis Grizzlies’ star point guard Ja Morant has addressed the incident in which he displayed a gun while participating in an Instagram live show with a friend. Morant acknowledged that he did not possess the pistol in an exclusive interview with former NBA player Jalen Rose and that he had sought counseling in Florida as a result of the incident.

In an interview with former NBA player and ESPN analyst Jalen Rose Ja Morant said, “The gun wasn’t mine. It’s not who I am, I don’t condone any type of violence, but I take full responsibility for my actions. I made a bad mistake and I can see now the image that I painted over myself with my recent mistakes.”

“In the future, Imma show everybody who Ja really is and what I’m about and change this narrative.”

After the event, Morant was not with the squad, and his Twitter and Instagram accounts were shut down. His eight-game sentence has officially been issued by the NBA, with the five games he has already missed counting towards the suspension. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Morant might make his court debut as soon as March 20.

Several people have criticized Morant’s actions, and many believe the league was right to suspend him. Some people have also noted that the incident serves as a reminder of the importance of improving gun safety education and the risks associated with handling weapons improperly.

The matter has been clarified and the context of Jalen Rose’s conduct has been provided by Morant’s discussion with him. Yet it’s unclear how the event may affect his career moving forward. Morant, one of the league’s brightest young talents, will have to put in a lot of effort to earn back the fans’ and teammates’ faith as well as to show that he has grown from his mistakes.

Ja Morant and Grizzlies are top Title contenders in the West

This season, the NBA’s best team has been the youthful and spirited Memphis Grizzlies, who have been helped by players like Desmond Bane and are headed by Ja Morant, a probable MVP candidate.

In the fiercely competitive Western Conference, it is still unclear whether they can be regarded as title candidates. Although they are presently ranked second in the West, their prior playoff loss to the Golden State Warriors and two recent losses have cast doubt on their ability.
