Ja Morant - The Truth

Post by Racer Insider Will » Sat Jan 05, 2019 1:55 pm

A new feature I wrote about Ja Morant. I call him The Truth.

When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies? Perhaps to be too practical is madness. To surrender dreams — this too may be madness. Too much sanity may be madness — and maddest of all: to see life as it is, and not as it should be!

I love him, but I hope he'll reduce his turnovers. 10 or so in a couple of games. Otherwise he's a solid all around player.

He has reduced. To 5 or less per game. The EKU game was a lot but 2 of those shouldn’t have been turnovers. The out of bounds at the bench and the walk in the 1st half. He did slide his back foot but his pivot foot was his front one. Wasn’t a walk. Also Ja is being triple teamed sometimes have to give him a little slack.

If we play 19 more games (rest of the season + 3 post season games,) he'd need to average 10.7 assists for the remaining games.

So, I'm going with...

Looked at my Athlon college hoops mag today. They have an article on the top 100 players this year in the ncaa. Ja not in it. 🧠. These know it all hot shots are a total joke.

Althon was just lazy, because a couple other mid major names should,have been on that list.

NCAA Basketball: Best player from each conference entering January 2019
by Jason Kinander

Ohio Valley Conference: Ja Morant, Murray State
Ja Morant is arguably the top mid major player, and will certainly be the top mid major player selected in next summers’ NBA draft.

The Murray State sophomore guard is averaging a stunning 23 points, 7 rebounds, and 10 assists per game on the season. Morant has been compared to Damian Lillard, and put up a triple-double against Alabama earlier in the season.

Murray State is the favorite to win the OVC, and if they can pull it off, they’ll be a prime upset pick in the NCAA tournament, all due to the unreal production from Morant.

Ja Morant will be a household name in a matter of seasons, and is truly one of the most enjoyable players to watch in the entire country for Murray State.

If Ja is now "The Truth", does Iverson get demoted?

I think it is Paul Pierce whose nickname in “The Truth” - not Iverson (who is AI).

No offense, but a nickname for Ja probably should be unique. He is one of a kind.
