During the All-Star Game, Ray Allen took time to laud Ja Morant for what the youngster has been doing this season.
Ja Morant has been having a pretty incredible year so far. The 22-year-old has been putting up some unreal stats on a nightly basis while leading his team to the 3rd best record in the whole league. Averaging 26.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 6.9 assists till now, Morant was rewarded by being named as an All-Star starter in Cleveland for Team Durant.
Playing 18 minutes in his first-ever ASG, Morant had 6 points, 3 assists, and 1 rebound, entertaining the crowd with some jaw-dropping dunks. Ja was visibly having a good time interacting with all the legends present from different eras of the league selected into the NBA’s 75th Anniversary Team.
One of the many all-time greats the 6-foot-3 guard interacted with was Ray Allen. And it would be a massive understatement to call their conversation wholesome.
Let’s get into it.
