My brain cant process Ja Morants athleticism.

Morant and the Grizzlies overwhelmed the Lakers on their house flooring in the second quarter to take a 65-52 lead into halftime. Their lead grew as big as 24 points in the 2nd half.
The No. 2 general pick in the 2019 NBA Draft has actually gotten better every season in the league. He was the Rookie of the Year for 2019-20, enhanced the majority of his analytical categories in his 2nd year and has continued to come into his own in Year 3.
This season, Morant is balancing 25 points per game while shooting 49.1 percent from the field and 39 percent from beyond the arc. Both of those are profession highs. He is averaging 5.8 rebounds, 6.6 helps and 1.5 takes.
From the highlights to the production, Morant deserves the cost of admission or that cable television expense today.
the most proper description of Ja Morants vert is “he steps on air.”.

Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant managed a two-handed block against the Lakers that appeared to defy the laws of physics.
Ja Morant might have rockets in his shoes and go-go-gadget arms.
Thats the only method to describe the outrageous two-handed block he managed against the Lakers on Sunday night.
The Grizzlies star flew to reject a shot from Avery Bradley and produced an astounding emphasize while doing it.
That may not have actually been the greatest Morant got on Sunday either. He looked like he was on a trampoline for a dunk later on in the game.
Ja Morant simply out here playing on pogo sticks huh.
