Rapper, Boosie Badazz has jumped to the aid of Ja Morant, who is receiving backlash after all the incidents that have come to light. All the allegations against the Memphis Grizzlies star, and the fans are against the young guard. However, the rapper has come out to defend him on Twitter.
Skip Bayless from UNDISPUTED is painting a story of Ja being associated with the Crips Gang. The sports commentator claims that Ja has thrown the gangs signs on multiple occasions as mentioned by Skip.
Skip stated after conducting his due diligence. He made multiple calls to confirm his suspicions after Ja flashed a gun in a nightclub while on an Instagram Live video. “I’ve called around the league to people I’ve known forever, talking about Ja,” Bayless said.
“Because I was so shocked by the IG Live, how brazen it was. And I had several people say to me, ‘Well, timeout, are you sure you guys on TV aren’t giving him a pass here, like you’re not that?’, that’s just who is he, that he is about that life.” said Skip.
Skip Bayless wants to know if Ja Morant is a crip gang member
“What does that mean? Does that mean he wants to associate with the crips? Or did he get initiated by the crips? Or does he have dreams of being a crip? I don’t know”

Not many are in favor of Ja Morant after all the allegations are being made against him. His involvement last summer is getting him into a lot of trouble. His recent involvement on social media did not help things, rather ended up making it worse.
Ja Morant issued an apology for his acts in the nightclub
After the loss against the Denver Nuggets, Ja Morant could be seen at a nightclub and appeared to be holding a gun. This led the organization to take immediate actions against the guard, who acted recklessly. The Grizzlies gave a 2-game suspension amid the NBA is also investigating of their own. However, Morant issued an apology after showing a gun in his Instagram Live video.
Statement from Ja Morant:
“I take full responsibility for my actions last night. I’m sorry to my family, teammates, coaches, fans, partners, the city of Memphis and the entire Grizzlies organization for letting you down….”

“I take full responsibility for my actions last night,” Morant said in the statement. “I’m sorry to my family, teammates, coaches, fans, partners, the city of Memphis and the entire Grizzlies organization for letting you down.” said Morant. As things stand, Morant could be in deeper waters if he is found to be carrying the firearm while traveling with the team.
