If the Grizzlies are led in the series against the Jazz, Ja Morant clearly does not have to be ashamed with his XXL performances. The proof, he has just achieved something unheard of for half a century in joining a very private club! Even LeBron James was not so strong at the start of his career, that’s to say!
Ja Morant is in the process of carrying out a simply exceptional first playoff campaign. If his Grizzlies will probably not pass the first round, the fault of a much more experienced Jazz team, the young leader shows that he has the guts necessary to become a superstar… Beat the points record in a match in his franchise during its second appearance only in postseason, it is strong.
If his father obviously did not appreciate the performance, itas evidenced by his lunar reaction, Ja Morant wrote the history of the league by surfing this card. He has just joined a very closed club where even LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Jordan are not! It shows the quality of the leader of the Grizzlies!

Ja Morant is the 4th player in league history to score 100 or more points in his first three playoff appearances. He joins Wilt Chamberlain (116 points), George Mikan (107 points), and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (102 points).
As always, Wilt Chamberlain is on a planet in his own right… But this statistic proves how good Ja Morant is in this first round. He joins legendary interiors and does better than current top players like LeBron James or even Luka Doncic, yet excellent in the bubble against the Clippers for his debut!
And icing on the cake, Ja Morant achieves this feat against one of the best defenses in the league! If the results do not follow yet, the leader is up to the event.
