Ja Morant: Off-Court Issues Affected Us A Lot
The Memphis Grizzlies were disappointed after their first-round series loss to the Los Angeles Lakers. Multiple Grizzlies expressed that they know they need to be better moving forward, including franchise player Ja Morant.
Morant took ownership of Memphis’ shortcomings, starting with himself.
“I just got to be better with my decision-making. Off-the-court issues affected us as an organization,” Morant said.
When asked a follow-up, Morant reiterated that making better decisions starts with him, as the team’s leader.
“Like I said before, my (takeaways) are off the court and on the court. Just, being disciplined. Off the court, it’s about making better decisions. On the court, it’s about being locked in even more,” Morant said. “Being the leader of the team, it starts with me. However I attack any situation, I know my guys will follow. I just have to be better in that area.”
