Grizzlies’ Ja Morant disagrees with his NBA 2K20 rating

Ja Morant, Grizzlies

Memphis Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant is not happy with his NBA 2K20 rating, and he vows to work hard to get a rating appropriate for his skills.

Morant, the second overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft, is rated 79 by the popular videogame. He is the second-highest rated player among rookies, only behind New Orleans Pelicans forward and top overall pick Zion Williamson.

However, the former Murray State point guard believes he deserves a higher rating and took it to Twitter to share his thoughts. He also embraced the challenge of proving the NBA 2K makers wrong.

Morant is coming off a spectacular collegiate season with the Racers, averaging 24.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, 10.0 assists and 1.8 steals per game. He also shot well, recording a 49.9 percent shooting clip including 36.3 percent from deep.

The 19-year-old is best remembered for his triple-double performance against Marquette in the NCAA Tournament. Morant tallied 17 points, 11 rebounds and 16 assists in their 83-64 victory. Remarkably, it was the first tournament triple double since Draymond Green accomplished it with the Michigan State Spartans back in 2012.

Morant didn’t play in the Las Vegas Summer League, as the Grizzlies took a cautious approach after he underwent a minor knee surgery early last June. However, the South Carolina native did confirm that he is 100 percent healthy and ready to go.
