Ja Morant Says He's Not Afraid Of Any Player: "I Don't Fear Nobody, Dawg. I Don't Care If You 7'7 Or Whatever. I'm Coming Straight At You."

Ja Morant has been spectacular this season. The 2nd overall pick from the 2019 NBA Draft has been progressing well over the last few years. And this year, he seems to have taken a massive leap, playing at an All-Star level, and helping the Grizzlies play some of the best basketball in the history of the franchise.

Morant has been a human highlight reel this season. His dunks have been one of the most exciting things to witness this year, and have led to great fanfare among the NBA fanbase. Many feel that Morant is a superstar in the making, who can put any player on a poster.

And Morant seems to share that opinion and made a statement recently. After the Grizzlies game against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Ja Morant noted that he didn't struggle against the bigger players of the Cavaliers. In fact, he isn't afraid of any player in the NBA, regardless of how big they are. Morant will try to dunk on anyone and everyone who stands in his way.

“I don't fear nobody, dawg. I don't care if you 7'7” or whatever. I'm coming straight at you.”

Clearly, Ja Morant is highly motivated. And he isn't going to shy away from trying to dunk on any player, no matter how big they are. This kind of fire and motivation is one of the many reasons why Morant has been so good this season and is projected to be an All-Star this season. His teammate Desmond Bane even said that his All-Star status shouldn't even be a debate.

With Morant on the team, the Grizzlies have looked spectacular this season. Ja has already made an impact with Memphis, leading them to their first playoff appearance in 4 years, and even helped them win Game 1 against the Utah Jazz, who were the first seed in the Western Conference.

This season, the Grizzlies have won a lot of games thanks to Morant. What makes it even more impressive is that some of these wins have come against some of the best teams in the NBA like the Nets, Warriors, and the Lakers. Morant is operating at a level much higher than anything we have seen from him in the past.
