Ja Morant is the biggest story in the NBA right now. Overall, it feels like the discourse around Morant has reached bizarre heights. Firstly, he was accused of threatening teenagers and mall cops, on multiple occasions. Subsequently, he flashed a gun while on Instagram Live which ultimately got him suspended by the league. This week, it was revealed that the suspension would be for eight games. Moreover, the league said that Morant could return to action on March 20th, which is Monday.

Morant also had an interview with Jalen Rose where he spoke about his wrongdoings. “The gun wasn’t mine. It’s not who I am,” Ja Morant said. “I don’t condone any type of violence, but I’ve taken responsibility for my actions. But in the future, I’m going to show everybody who Ja really is, what I’m about, and change this narrative that everybody got.” Now, however, Morant is under the microscope yet again as some internet sleuths found an Instagram account he had when he was 13. Needless to say, the man cannot catch a break right now.

Ja Morant On Instagram

As you can see in the tweets above, the dates on these IG posts are from just over 10 years ago. They are mostly just a collection of selfies from Ja Morant, who went by the username @soexclusive12_. Additionally, Morant is being roasted for his NSFW captions. In one caption, he writes "I jus wanna f*ck yo bestfriend, for one night only." These are mostly just song lyrics, however, Twitter users couldn't help but laugh at a 13-year-old writing all of this stuff. At the end of the day, it really is not a big deal, as kids will be kids.

For now, Ja Morant seems focused on getting back to the court and showing people what he can do. Hopefully, he is able to stay out of trouble, as we would hate to see him regress back to old habits. Based on the Grizzlies' new protocols, it seems like he is in good hands. Let us know what you think about all of this, in the comments below.
