Ja Morant was the second overall pick in 2019 NBA Draft and has been a franchise-altering player for the Memphis Grizzlies to this point. He led the team to the play-in tournament last season and solidified himself as a star in this league.
Morant recently told HoopsHype’s Michael Scotto that he is a top-five point guard in the NBA today. He put himself on that list alongside Steph Curry, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard and Russell Westbrook.
“The point guard position is so loaded. Some guys have to get left out,” said Morant.
The former rookie of the year averaged 19.1 points and 7.4 assists per game last season. While he does need to improve on his 3-point shooting, he certainly is on his way to becoming one of the top point guards in the NBA.
As Morant enters his third NBA season, he has extremely high expectations for himself.
