Ja Morant has been involved in quite a bit of controversy as of late. Earlier in the NBA season, he flashed a gun on Instagram live which led to a suspension. However, after vowing to never do it again...he did it again. Overall, it has been a very bad look for Morant. He could be facing a massive suspension, and fans are curious as to what will happen. Furthermore, he had some concerning Instagram posts yesterday which led to a welfare check from the police. Although, Morant was declared to be okay.

In addition to all of this, Nike had taken the Nike Ja 1 off of its web store. Ja Morant had been killing it with his signature shoe, and fans were stunned that he would be penalized this way. That said, his upcoming Nike Ja 1 "Hunger" was still listed on the SNKRS App. This subsequently led to confusion surrounding his standing with the brand. Additionally, fans were confused if these shoes would even come out. They were slated to come out today, and as it turns out, they were, in fact, released.

According to TMZ, these shoes sold out almost immediately. There was very little stock and the price was $110 USD which is extremely affordable. Moreover, with all of the heat around Ja Morant, fans were more interested in these than ever before. If Nike were to terminate their partnership, then these could skyrocket in price. Although it doesn't seem like that is going to be happening, anytime soon. For now, this partnership appears to be way too lucrative for Nike to just outright abandon.

Whether or not we will be seeing any more Ja Morant signatures in the near future, remains to be seen. Either way, this is all very interesting to see play out. Just like Kyrie Irving, Morant has a lot of fan support behind him. That said, Nike could be looking at an interesting decision over the coming months. Let us know what you think of all this, in the comments section below.
