Ja Morant takes savage shot at players complaining about bubble accommodation
Memphis Grizzlies rookie point guard Ja Morant has no problem with his hotel room and food thus far at Walt Disney World.
Some players have complained about the living conditions at Disney World, but Morant said he’s not a “silver spoon guy.”
Ja Morant: "My room is fine. The food is fine. I'm not a silver spoon guy."

The Grizzlies, along with the Oklahoma City Thunder, Philadelphia 76ers, Houston Rockets, Indiana Pacers, Dallas Mavericks, Brooklyn Nets and Orlando Magic, are staying at the Grand Floridian hotel at Disney World.
Morant grew up in South Carolina. With that said, the new Grizzlies’ franchise player doesn’t have anything to complain about since he’s getting paid millions of dollars to play the sport he loves and provide for his family.
Before games were suspended in March after Utah Jazz center Rudy Gobert contracted COVID-19, Morant was averaging 17.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 6.9 assists. The high-flyer, who is expected to win the 2020 Rookie of the Year Award, was shooting 49.1 percent from the field, 36.7 percent from beyond the arc and 77.0 percent from the free-throw line.
Most NBA pundits picked the Grizzlies to finish with one of the worst records in the NBA this season since Mike Conley and Marc Gasol are gone. However, Morant and fellow youngster Jaren Jackson Jr. were motivated to lead the franchise to the postseason since the whole NBA landscape was doubting them.
To complete their goal, Morant and Jackson have to lead the Grizzlies to a solid seeding-games record so the team can hold off the New Orleans Pelicans, Portland Trail Blazers, San Antonio Spurs, Phoenix Suns and Sacramento Kings for the eighth and final playoff spot out West.
