Maybe not but Conley is uberathletic.

If Ja Morant is legitimately more athletic than he is going to be a NBA all-star for many seasons

Love me some Mike Conley - but Ja Morant is clearly more athletic than him. Just look at the explosion alone ... dude has some hops.

RE: Ja Morant Draft Profiles
My 2 hopes are: 1) he stays hungry and realizes that, for someone overlooked during college recruiting, simply making the league no longer is his ceiling, and he has so much more he can achieve: potential all star, potential deep playoff runs, potential all-NBA selection; and 2) the bounces on his springs don't limit his productive years, as they have with many athletic players (and that, before they wear down, he develops compensatory skills to maintain and adapt his productivity and value). If he has those things, the sky is the limit. And so far, I have no reason to doubt either.

I don't expect him to become rookie of the year. As long as he shows his college game translates to the league (especially the second and subsequent times top tier defenders see him), and is improving on his deficiencies, and developing a rhythm with the rest of the nucleus (especially Jaren), I am hopeful for our near future.

Well don't go falling in love with Morant just yet...Lonzo Ball may be in our future. They better not screw this up and trade away the 2nd pick.

I get it but would you call Derrick Rose more athletic than Mike Conley?

At one point he was.

But Conley has proven to be very athletic and durable over a long time.

I guess we will see but Conley had the genes.

I'm all in on Morant but, well, if he is truly more athletic than Mike Conley then he will be a multi year all star.

Please no to Lonzo Ball.

Decent except for this:

Quote:Morant shot 36.3 percent from three this past season, but that number drops to just 33.6 percent if his 7-for-8 shooting from three in the NCAA tournament is factored out.

That's an odd look at it. If we exclude the 1-6 he shot against Auburn and the 1-7 he shot against Jacksonville State he is shooting 38.2%. He also improved a good bit from his freshman season 30.7 to 36.3.

RE: Ja Morant Draft Profiles
my favorite part of that article is this....

That passing is what makes all the difference, and as much as his athleticism or ability as a scorer, it’s the reason why he can be viewed as a player with the potential to be a franchise-changing point guard in the same stratosphere as the likes of Russell Westbrook and John Wall.

His personality seems better than both of those guys too. He seems to have a wide arsenal of skills. Still a little odd to me how misused Westbrook was at UCLA by Howland.

I see a bit of Derrick Rose as well. Maybe not as muscular yet.

Jaren is a little quiet. Ja seems to have a more marketable personality.

Ball is the most overrated player there is. Wouldn't touch him with a 10 foot pole.

That would end my tenure as a recent Griz fan.

RE: Ja Morant Draft Profiles
Forde Article

Quote:When the Racers were eliminated by West Virginia in the 2018 NCAA tournament, ending Morant’s freshman season, the team had to fly from San Diego to Paducah, Kentucky, then bus back to campus. The next day, Morant drove from Murray to Nashville, flew to Charlotte, drove home to Dalzell, South Carolina, and was playing in a pickup game that night.
....
At a time when more college players than ever seem overly reliant on their dominant hand, Morant is virtually ambidextrous as a dribbler, passer and finisher at the rim. In fact, his one-hand passing helped boost his nation-leading assist total, thanks to the quickness with which he can deliver the ball in any direction.

“He had multiple games where he had more assists passing with his left hand than his right,” McMahon said.

I saw four Ja Morant replica jerseys at the Tigers-Navy game last night. It's nice to have some hope for the future again. If he lives up to his billing, maybe we'll even have a player crack the NBA's top 20 in jersey sales.
