Ja Morant has driven 385 million views across all NBA’s socials. The 22-year-old only trails the likes of megastars Stephen Curry and LeBron James.
The NBA is filled with talented individuals. There are numerous players who are considered as good, however, not all of them can be regarded as entertaining. Chris Paul, Rudy Gobert, Nikola Jokic are some of the classic examples for the same – they are extremely brilliant at their respective roles, but they aren’t exactly captivating.
Ja Morant is one of the league’s best entertainers. Standing at 6-foot-3, the Grizzlies guard has an insane dunk package, acrobatic finish at the rim, and that flair that leaves fans in awe. A recent stat showed how at 22-years-old, the All-Star has been one of the most entertaining players.
Morant has driven a whopping total of 385 million views across all the NBA’s socials this season, which is the third-most views of any player. The highflyer only trails the likes of global icons – Stephen Curry (674 million) and LeBron James (402 million).

The Ja Morant buzzer-beater alley-oop was the most-viewed NBA Instagram video ever
This past month, Morant went on a sensational scoring rampage, averaging 40.5 in his past 4 games. His career-high 52-point game against the San Antonio Spurs was as delightful as one hopes for it to be.
Morant went 100% from the three-point line, had an emphatic poster on Jakob Poeltl, knocked down an unreal buzzer-beater alley-oop to close the half, and finished the night with a staggering 52 points.
Ja Morant today:
52 points (career high)
poster dunk over 7-footer
Buzzer beater with 0.4 seconds left
Won’t be too many nights like this one.
