Ja Morant Reacts To Accusations Made Against His Friends

Ja Morant is one of the best young players in the entire NBA. However, he has been accused of not having the best attitude at times. For instance, he has made some comments on Twitter that have rubbed fans the wrong way. Some believe he is running with the wrong crowd and that subsequently, he could get into a lot of trouble. Overall, Morant has denied this notion and has continued to live life as is. Although, Morant couldn't ignore some hefty allegations that were made against his friend group. According to the Associated Press, someone in his group allegedly pointed a red dot at a contingent of Pacers supporters following a game on January 29th.

As you can imagine, these are some very strong allegations. The report noted that Morant was with those friends at the time of the incident and that their actions came after a heated altercation. NBA Spokesman Mike Bass offered a statement on the issue, claiming that there is no evidence that any weapon-based threats were made. "While we substantiated that a postgame situation arose that was confrontational, based on interviews and other evidence gathered, we could not corroborate that any individual threatened others with a weapon," Bass said.

Ja Morant Takes To Twitter

Following this investigation, Morant took to Twitter where he noted that his friend was banned from home games for an entire year. Moreover, Morant felt as though the original report was meant to slander him. He feels like the media is trying to portray him a certain way, and he will not stand for it. "Did a investigation seen they were cappin," he wrote. "Still let a article come out to paint this negative image on me & my fam. & banned my brother from home games for a year. Unbelievable."

Regardless of the outcome of the investigation, this is still a bad look for Ja Morant. Fans are concerned for him, and that will continue to be the case. Overall, he is a phenomenal player, and his fans just want what is best for him. Hopefully, he will take that into consideration, moving forward.
