Memphis Grizzlies v Los Angeles Lakers - Game Six

Ja Morant has had a whirlwind past few months in the NBA. Of course, a lot of this started when he flashed a gun while in a strip club in Denver. Subsequently, he was suspended by the NBA for about eight games. From there, he apologized and claimed that he would be better. However, he flashed a gun again on Instagram Live, which then led to a 25-game suspension. Now, Morant will not be eligible for any awards next season, which costs him tens of millions of dollars.

Of course, fans are divided on this suspension. Although some believe it is a good length, others seem to think that this is just way too much. Either way, it is going to put the Memphis Grizzlies in a considerable hole next season. It is going to take them a while to get back into the swing of things. Additionally, who knows how good Morant will be after so many months off? It could be a truly rough season, and now, reports are circulating that he and his current/former associates are upset.
