Ja Morant: The Gun WASN’T MINE!!

NBA baller Ja Morant is denying that the gun he brandished in a club and on social media is his.

“The gun wasn’t mine,” Morant told Jalen Rose. “It’s not who I am. I don’t condone any type of violence, but I take full responsibility for my actions. I’ve made a bad mistake. I can see the image that I’ve painted over myself with my recent mistakes. In the future I’m gonna show everybody who Ja really is, what I’m about and change this narrative.”

The league has officially suspended Morant for eight games due to a video he posted of himself holding a gun in a nightclub in Colorado. He says he wanted an “escape.”

“Honestly, I feel like we put ourselves in that situation with our past mistakes, and now it’s only right that we focus in and lock in on being smarter and more responsible, holding each other accountable for everything,” Morant said. “I feel like in the past we didn’t know what was at stake. And now finally me having that time to realize everything, have that time alone, I realize that now.”

Has Morant screwed up his career already?
