The Rise of Ja Morant: Why He Has More NBA Potential Than Zion

16-Yan, 2019
112 524 Ko‘rishlar soni

Temetrius Ja Morant has broken onto the hoops scene as arguably the top point guard in all of college basketball, and has recently found his name being mentioned in the top 5 of the upcoming 2019 NBA Draft. Considering he entered his college career unranked, with very few major offers, it's not hard to see why he's caught so many people off guard. The question is, now that Morant finds himself in the national spotlight, will he be able to finally prove all the people who doubted him wrong...and establish himself as one of basketball's newest stars.

  • My coworker who is from Sumter, SC same town as Morant put me on to him. Cant wait to see him play! South Carolina players are on fire this year! Zion, Morant, and keep an eye out for De'Riante Jenkins of VCU who is from my hometown of Eutawville, SC

    Roderick WhiteRoderick WhiteYil oldin
  • Yeah dudes comparing him to Lillard, I think Wall/Rose are the better comparisons, if Zion wasn't there he'd be 1st pick. Lillard wasn't even high on draft boards until the pre draft workouts from memory, he was also a shooter.

  • If Iverson was 2 inches bigger(pause). That’s what I see and that’s all I’m going to say

  • Seems that everyone uses Zion as the Gold Standard when comparing draft potential. lol

    Jai DaMannJai DaMannYil oldin
    • That's because this year he is the standard. Every other prospect has to be compared to him since he's the clear #1 pick and therefore sets the bar for everyone else.

  • Morant to the Suns. Starting line up of Morant, Booker, Oubre, Warren (undersized PF, hopefully they sign a proven PF or a veteran at the very least), Ayton. The talent on that team is off the charts! With a good veteran presence, this Suns team could sneak into the playoffs and make some noise. #TimeToRise

  • Chicago could definitely use him. Dunn is cool but he has showed no growth in numbers . Dunn would become a good backup to a guy like this. The bulls need a “FLARE” type of player at the point right now. Someone who can score as much as he can see the rest of the court. The bulls could definitely use that type of balance right now.

    D MD MYil oldin
    • Phoenix are the ones that need the point they should even trade up a spot. I think Bulls are fine with RJ or Hachimura, having another scorer that demands the ball is just not gonna work unless they trade Lavine. Personally I hope Harrison develops his play making and shot consistency, he's great on defense and in transition.

    • Doesnt matter, he played well when they faced some top level teams. Look whats he is doing, and then add the fact that when he gets to the NBA and gets the best trainers and coaching he has another level to reach.

  • He's the new Dwyane Wade.

    E WokE WokYil oldin
  • He looks like a 6'2" Allen Iverson. Will he be a bust? How well will he transition from mid major college big fish in a small pond to NBA big fish among many other big fishes? I don't know. Most guards his size take time to develop. I doubt he will make an immediate impact, but his statistical production is second to none in this year's stacked draft class. Maybe Zion has better stats, but it's debatable. Morant has a higher PPG average and is leading the nation in assists as well. Wow. He is no doubt worth a first round pick. Any team should be happy to select him. I expect the NBA transition will be a challenge and struggle for him. I don't feel he will be able to impose his will on opposing teams like he has done in college. His speed should transition well into the NBA, however he would be best suited on a team that is committed to fast breaking like the Lakers.

  • I wish Ja Morant all the best in his future Travels on the Roads of Life. His athletic ability is not a surprise to me, because I am knowledgeable of his mother's family tree. His Grandfather, Grand uncle, Uncle, and Great grandfather were all top athletes in baseball, football and basketball. I, "PETER PETER" is his third cousin on his mother's side, I played sports, but not at the level to compete with the named family members I believe Ja Morant will be a Star in the NBA. In closing I say to my cousin, " Keep your head straight, your heart strong and your mind together!'

  • Ja is nice, but not playing any real talent and he is stacking numbers rather than trying to get team wins. I think he will do good at next level, but needs to be more of a team player.

    Fran BarshonFran BarshonYil oldin
    • He's averaging over 25 ppg against the high major teams he's played and averaging almost 10 assists per game. I think it's hard to look at that and say he isn't a team player, if anything, he's not selfish ENOUGH at times. Now I would agree that he doesn't play as many top teams as other top prospects, but from what we've seen so far, he's gonna be fine. Thanks for watching!

  • Jesus is our Lord and Savior. Jesus is God in flesh. Jesus is the one true God. We are all sinners and we all fall short of the glory of God. Jesus came to the Earth and died for sins to be washed away so can make it to Heaven. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life and the only way to Heaven. U have to do more than just a believe in Jesus to make it to Heaven tho. U have to do the Lord's will. These are the things the word of God told us we have to do be forgiven for our sins, saved, and make it to Heaven. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior. Repent from your sins. Get baptized in the name of Jesus. Have a deep relationship with Jesus. Love everyone Forgive others Obey God's commandments. Speak the word of God to the world. Do the Lord's will until the end. There is nothing more important than God. This life is jus temporary but Heaven and Hell is forever. Your true purpose in life is to follow Jesus, have a deep relationship with Jesus, walk with Jesus, learn about Jesus, and lead others to Jesus. God has so many commandments it's 613 of them and it's impossible to obey all of them all the time. U are gonna make mistakes and God knows U can't be perfect that's why Jesus came to the Earth and died for our sins to be washed away. God jus wants U to try your hardest to not sins, to obey his commandments, and to do everything he wants U to do and when U do sin he jus wants U to be honest with him and admit to your sins, ask for forgiveness of your sins, and ask Jesus to help U not give into temptation of sins. Hell wasn't meant for us it was meant for Satan and the other fallen angels. Satan decieved the first humans and caused them to sin and the world become corrupt and most humans choose not to follow Jesus. Satan is decieving people and there are so many people heading to Hell. Satan, the fallen angels, evil spirits, and Satan's followers the Illuminati, the richest families in the world and the Free Masons, they all control the world from the governments, the economy, drug trade, Hollywood, movies, TV, radio, news, science community, schools, and even religion and they are lying to U, decieving U, trying to brainwash U, and trying to keep U from the truth. They don't want U to follow Jesus. Those people are Devil worshippers that sold their soul to the Devil for fortune, fame, and power. They promote sin thru movies TV and music, they try to get U disobey God, they don't want U to follow Jesus, they poison your food water and medicine, and they are trying to create a One World Government that Satan will come as the AntiChrist and will rule the world in the last days. And they are gonna try to make U take the mark of the beast on your forehead or forearm and if U take it U will automatically go to Hell. And they are gonna try to kill U. Religion is being used to confuse people. That's why there is so many different religions and there should only one religion and that's Jesus. Christianity is even doing things wrong. It has many different religions inside one religion and they are all making their own interpretations of the Bible instead of going exactly what the word of God says. When Christianity was started the Romans took several books out the original Hebrew Bible. Most churches and preachers don't speak the full truth of the Bible they are presching false doctrines. Most of them also follow the traditions of men instead of obeying God's commandments. They are celebrating the Sabbath on the wrong day Sunday the first day of the week instead of Saturday the last day of the week. They are baptizing people the wrong way in the name of the Father the Son and the Holy Ghost instead of in the name of Jesus. And alot of them celebrate false Paegan holidays that are satanic. And U don't have to go to church cause Jesus never commanded us to. jesus set his church up on the rock with his disciples and we are suppose to be disciples of Jesus so the us the followers of Jesus is the real church not a building. Church buildings are jus places U can go to praise God, have a fellowship, and learn the word of God but U can do those things anywhere anytime. It's better to make sure U read the Bible yourself and learn the word of God and make sure the church is going exactly of the word of God. If U Love Jesus then U will obey his commandments. U show Jesus U Love him by your actions. Don't live for the worldly things like money, materialistic things, attention, and other stuff, live for Jesus. Dont follow the world follow Jesus. And Jesus is coming back soon.

  • Real good video. I subscribed. Ja Morant will be just fine in the league. AI type guy with more length. Get the jumper more consistent (like you said) and he'll be fine. Getting open looks in the NBA will be easy for the 3 ball and he obviously creates space just fine. Some Curry off ball craftiness would be a nightmare.

    Jordan IngeJordan IngeYil oldin
    • I appreciate it and I agree, the development of his jumper will be the major key. If he can improve that, he'll be so much harder to guard even as a rookie because of his speed and craftiness. Add all that with his playmaking ability, and we could be seeing a great player in the making. Thanks for watching!

    • @Blackman Whitesuit if zion goes to knicks the marquee players will follow. Lebron never thought twice about heading to the Knicks . No supporting cast for him then it was a no go You are witness the remnants of what it would have been like if Lebron was with the Knicks with the latest turn of events in LA and his finger pointing

      quality333quality333Yil oldin
    • @quality333 I have this weird Patrick Ewing feeling with Zion. It almost feels no matter what Zion is going to the Knicks (like Lebron to the Cavs). I don't think the trade happens unless Kyrie/KD commits to NY before. Draft day trades are always my favorite thing, because they throw wrenches in everything. I haven't been following the NBA since 1967, but I'm a pretty involved fan now.

      Dante LarneyDante LarneyYil oldin
    • Trice great video bro . The kid is amazing reminds of a more athletic Deangelo Russel , with the herky jerky stop and go’s and the ability to see passes before they are there . As athletic as he is , he is smoothe . He will be a top 5 pick butttt I think Barret and Zion physically are a little more ready to play in the NBA and Reddish name may carry more weight especially if Duke does really well in the tourney . Pick 4-6 seem like where he will land .
