Kendrick Perkins took to Twitter and praised the rookie point guard of the Memphis Grizzlies, Ja Morant.

The 2008 NBA champion and ESPN analyst wrote that Morant is a Top-5 point guard in the league and maybe he should participate in the All-Star Game next month.

Morant was unstoppable against the Houston Rockets on Tuesday, posting a team-high 26 points and 8 assists and leading his team to the win (121-110).

Morant has been phenomenal this season, averaging 17.8 points, 3.4 rebounds, and a team-high 6.9 assists.
