How does this keep happening? A few months ago, Ja Morant got in trouble for flashing a gun during his own Instagram Live. It was one of the many gun and violence-related issues that the Memphis Grizzlies star found himself in. After a suspension by the team, Morant apologized for his actions. Everyone hoped he would turn over a new leaf. That… might not be the case, as Ja Morant was once again seen flashing a handgun on an IG Live.

Is it legal to own guns? Yes, yes it is. Depending on the state, though, the Grizzlies star could be in trouble for showing a gun in a public place. Even if it’s legal, showing off a gun that haphazardly isn’t really a good look. Morant is a popular player, and a lot of younger kids look up to him. It also gets him ridiculed by NBA Twitter for somehow not learning his lesson.

Some fans also pointed out that the friend taking the video tried to take the camera off of him when he saw the gun.
W mans for moving the camera right away

He a real one for switching the camera off Ja so quickly

It’s also worth noting that this move from Morant directly affects him in terms of what he can earn. His Nike signature shoe release was actually delayed in the wake of his first IG Live gun incident. Similarly, the Grizzlies star’s commercial with Powerade was pulled in the wake of that incident. You have to wonder if these brands would be more hesitant to work with someone who consistently gets in petty trouble like this.
The Grizzlies are yet to comment on this incident regarding Ja Morant and his IG Live. Considering that he was already suspended for an incident similar to this, you have to wonder what the team’s next move is.
