NBArank 2021: Ranking the best players for 2021-22, from 50 to 26
https://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/322 ... 1-22-50-26
No. 31: Ja Morant
Memphis Grizzlies | PG
2020 NBArank: No. 31
One big question: Can Morant make defenders respect his 3-point shot, particularly off the dribble? If he does, it's hard to imagine how to guard Morant, who might be the quickest player in the league with the ball in his hands. But Morant shot only 30.3% from beyond the arc last season, allowing opponents to routinely go under screens in pick-and-rolls, negating his advantage in explosiveness. That was a big factor in Morant averaging only 0.81 points per possession as a pick-and-roll ball handler. -- MacMahon

Thanks Thai for what you bring to these forums!

Ja is more interested in positioning his teammates to win ball games. He takes what the defense gives him. He's happy as a lark to score 0 points and have 25 assists. He will do what has to be done to win games. Ja knows that he can improve the efficiency of the other guys on the court and that it is harder to guard 4 guys than 1 guy. He is smart as a whip!

0.81 PPP doesn't mean squat by itself but if that's what they want to use as a metric, it's their publication.

I'll bet his PPP was off the charts in the playoffs against Utah when he scored just under 50 points - you know, when it mattered the most!

His performance, at his age and experience level, was at least top-10 all-time in the NBA!

Just sayin'.
