“You’re his daddy, you are not his boy” Ja Morant’s father Tee Morant is to blame for his son’s gun incident: Stephen A. Smith

The recent Ja Morant gun incident has gained widespread attention. People are eagerly anticipating the consequences he may face for showing a gun during an Instagram Live stream. Amidst this controversy, sports analyst Stephen A. Smith criticized Tee Morant, Ja’s father.

Smith pointed out that Tee Morant’s primary responsibility is to be a parent to his son rather than trying to be his friend. This was prompted by an earlier incident in which Tee Morant became involved in an altercation in Los Angeles alongside Memphis Grizzlies players and Shannon Sharpe.

What was the message of Stephen A. Smith to Morant’s father?

To his dad, I would say to him sir, love and respect to you, love seeing you at the games, I would remind you sir, you are his daddy, you are not his boy,” said Smith. “The reality of the situation is that on far too many occasions… remember when there was the altercation at the Staples Center involving Shannon Sharpe? His dad ended up in the middle of that. You see his boys, I’ve seen some of these brothers. Good brothers as far as I’m concerned – they love their brother, Ja Morant. My advice to y’all: protect the asset.”

Stephen A. Smith is right about his stance that parents should have control over their children. Although parents may need to enforce discipline on their children at times, Ja Morant is now an adult capable of making his own choices. Nevertheless, given Morant’s relative youth, this recent incident could be indicative of immaturity rather than anything else.

What punishment will Ja Morant get for his Instagram gun incident?

Currently, there is limited information available about the potential consequences Ja Morant may face from either the league or his team. In a recent update, Taylor Jenkins disclosed that there is no set timeline for the point guard’s comeback.

“There’s no definitive timeline. We’ve said it’ll be at least 2 games, but we’re taking it one day at a time. This is going to be an ongoing healing process so I can’t comment on what the exact timetable will be because this is not a timetable situation.”

In addition to the disciplinary measures that could be imposed by the league and the Grizzlies, Ja Morant may also be confronted with legal problems. According to a recent report, the Colorado Police have initiated an investigation into the point guard.

This incident highlights the importance of carefully using social media and sensitive matters like dealing with guns.
