Memphis Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant responded on Twitter after Kendrick Nunn said he deserves Rookie of the Year over Morant.
“I think people will say that he is Rookie of the Year, but I don’t believe it,” said Nunn. “The most value should be in the wins … We’re a playoff team, so go ahead and give that Rookie of the Year to Kendrick Nunn.”
Morant tweeted this GIF reaction:
The Grizzlies Twitter page showed support for the young star and Morant followed up by tweeting, “It’s mine to lose.”
It looks like we might have a new rivalry to keep an eye out for in the future.
