Ja Morant went off for career-high 47 points as the Grizzlies tied the second round series against the Warriors by winning Game 2. His stellar performance received praise from LeBron James.
The Lakers superstar did not think that the 22-year-old point guard should have been in the Most Improved Player — the award that was just given to Morant — conversation because he is already a superstar.
“JA so damn tough!!!! There’s no way Ja should even have been in MIP talks. This guy is a flat out ⭐️ and always have been!! Real basketball 🧠s know. Not the majority of dweebs who don’t even watch basketball on those voting ballots,” the four-time NBA champion tweeted.
