The NBA is investigating Ja Morant's recent Instagram live video, in which he appeared to flash a gun while filming a selfie.
The video was shot at what appeared to be a strip club after the Memphis Grizzlies' loss to the Denver Nuggets.
Morant was seen dancing around shirtless and rapping along to NBA YoungBoy's “Bring ‘Em Out” before briefly brandishing what looked like a gun in front of the camera. It is not clear whether the object was real or not.
An NBA spokesperson released a statement on Saturday morning saying, “We are aware of a social media post involving Ja Morant and are investigating.”
This is not the first time Morant has been accused of flashing a gun. He was recently accused of doing so during an altercation with a teenager at his home in Tennessee over the summer.
However, officials declined to prosecute citing a lack of evidence.
Morant has also been seen doing a finger gun celebration during a game against the Rockets. Despite these incidents, Morant has become a star in the NBA since being drafted in 2019.
He has led the Grizzlies to two playoff appearances and has an average of 22.5 points per game.
It is important to note that the NBA has strict rules about weapons, and players are not allowed to carry them while participating in league activities.
The investigation will likely determine whether any disciplinary action will be taken against Morant.
In conclusion, the NBA is investigating Ja Morant after he appeared to flash a gun on Instagram live. This is not the first time he has been accused of doing so.
The investigation will determine whether any disciplinary action will be taken against him. It is important to note that the NBA has strict rules regarding weapons and player conduct.
