See what a father can do in a young mans life?

Exactly. I know that sometimes circumstances prevent it, but I don’t care how good a single parent is - ideally nothing is better than a stable two parent home. Kids need their mother 𝗮𝗻𝗱 their father. We’ve gotta stop trying to glorify instability

This is a great video and thank you for posting. I think Mr. Morant (Ja's Dad) is also a great story the way he sacrificed for and helped his Son. He also did a great job of teaching Ja work ethic and humility. I will admit I had some doubt but I now admit I was 100% wrong. Not only does Ja Morant deserve everything he has he deserves everything he will get because he's worked his tail off and nobody can ever deny that. Memphis looks like they have a really nice thing going with Desmond Bane, Brandon Clarke, J. Jackson, etc. Good for that franchise and those loyal fans!

This sounds like it was recorded some time before the regular season ended. However, the point *does* still stand... the Grizzlies got the #2 seed in the West, facing the Timberwolves in the First Round. The Grizzlies haven't made it to the finals at all, and not the Western Finals since the Grit and Grind era. Here's to hoping for the best.
