This Fact About Ja Morant Will Make You Question Everything About Basketball Rankings

The Memphis Grizzlies are led by Ja Morant, who started in the All-Star Game at just 22 years old this season.

The Grizzlies are in the middle of a second-round playoff series against the Golden State Warriros after beating the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first round in six games.

They made the NBA Playoffs last season, but this year they broke through for an incredible season (2nd seed in the Western Conference) and none of that is possible without Morant who is their best player.

What’s even more fascinating about Morant is that even though he was the second overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, he was totally underrated to get into Murray State University.

The All-Star was unranked in high school.

So many NBA players come into the league after being highly touted prospects at the top of their high school class and going on to play for historic college programs.

Morant didn’t get that opportunity, and Murray State wasn’t a well-known college.

Still, Morant is easily one of the top 20 basketball players in the world right now, so he’s living proof that ranking doesn’t always matter and there are plenty of players who get overlooked. .
