Shannon Sharpe recently gave a top-tier rant about Ja Morant and alleged that the ball player’s “tough guy act” isn’t worth messing up his career.

Ja Morant is poised to be the face of the NBA sooner rather than later considering his undeniable “wow” factor. He has made the Grizzlies the most exciting team to watch and also has snatched up a hefty deal with Nike who fast-tracked his signature sneaker. One thing that his peers and social media have constantly critiqued however is how he portrays himself off the court.

Recently a situation was revealed by The Athletic that alleged Morant’s best friend Davonte Pack and other members of his crew pointed a laser at a member of the Indiana Pacers. Several people alleged the laser was potentially attached to a gun (although one wasn’t seen) and critics believe it’s yet another example of the Morant pretending to be “tough.”

Yesterday, Shannon Sharpe, who previously had an incident with the Memphis Grizzlies, went on a rant while discussing Morant.

“I wish Ja would realize he’s not a thug,” Sharpe said on UNDISPUTED. “Ja is a really good basketball player. Ja did everything he could to lift himself and his family out of this environment and to get away from this. And for some reason, he wants to surround himself with these types of people. Why? Bruh, you not hard. That’s not your life. People that [are] in that life would give anything to be in your life.”

Hopefully, Ja Morant takes heed of warnings from people like Shannon Sharpe.
