If he enters it, he will win it. Crazy leaping ability.

I find it very hard to believe he's not on an NBA roster. There are a hell of a lot of players on NBA rosters with less talent. Bring him back to the show!!!

I’m gonna go out on a limb here. Ja has the ability to be pretty good in the league...

Notice how Ja is now finishing without falling to the floor, and has no hesitation in shooting the three. It is hard to believe, considering how good he was, that he has gotten so much better. Don't know how much credit goes to Jenkins, and the coaching staff, but the Grizzlies don't even look like the same team that started the season. I notice that he and Morant seem to communicate a lot during the game, kind of how he did with Coach McMahon.. I am so glad that Memphis is working out for Ja. He is mature in his interviews and seems to have gained the respect of the players. He represents Murray State well.

I think you hit upon something- coaching, like playing, tends to be an ego driven process. Some coaches can't handle players who want to talk about things. Ja had a great rapport with CMM and in return, CMM trusted him, listened to him, and gave him the leeway to let his game develop. Sure, it was a little crazy, a little erratic at times early on, but instead of putting clamps on him, they worked together to get better. Credit CMM and Ja for that. That is some high level stuff that not every player/coach does.

Racer Nation is something else! Wow!! We operate on a measly little budget but our fans are big time! Imagine if the university would invest more in this program what it could be.

THIS right here is why we are so successful in a nutshell. Greatest fans per capita or per $ spent in the country! No contest.

You all are forgetting the sad part of all this. There are more Racer fans in Memphis for a Grizzlies game than most OVC home teams will have in attendance for their own home game!!!

Go Grizzlies!
Go Ja!
Go Racers!
Rest of the OVC...your fans suck.

Every recruiting material they send out should include these pics from tonight.

Why do I have a strong feeling that Ja is going to get screwed out of rookie of the year?

The press even made a headline that Zion practiced today after playing yesterday. What a feat. :roll:
