Ja Morant spoke with the media on Friday for the first time since the end of last season and the announcement of his 25-game suspension, which ends on Monday. The All-NBA guard of the Memphis Grizzlies said the right things and acknowledged that his conduct is more important than a short joke.
“I can’t get anyone to believe me but with my actions,” Morant said. „So, if I answer this question with words, it probably won’t mean anything.“
He’s not wrong, and he was also right about his role in the team’s brutal record.
“For that, I take full responsibility, even if I’m not on the court. The decisions I’ve made haven’t allowed me to be out there and fight with my team,”
