Stephen A. Smith: People ‘Are Concerned About Whether or Not’ Ja Morant is ‘Gonna Be Alive In 5 Years’

There are many people who are concerned with the well-being of Memphis Grizzlies player, Ja Morant, especially after a recent Instagram post that he deleted. The cryptic message he posted cause Memphis police officers to do a welfare check.

Now, ESPN’s sportscaster Stephen A. Smith has gone on record as saying that there are people in the NBA who are concerned if the young basketball player is “gonna be alive in five years.”

According to OutKick, Smith made the assessment while appearing on “The Rich Eisen Show.”

“In terms of Ja Morant’s behavior off the court, some of the things he finds himself engaged in, with the company that he keeps, with the establishments that he visits, things of that nature. Obviously, he feels compelled, pretty much all the time, to have a gun around him.

“A lot of players I know are from the streets, period. And I can tell you that people within the NBA community are not just concerned about Ja Morant playing basketball. They’re concerned about whether or not he’s gonna be alive in five years.”

As NBA fans and even outsiders await the fate of Morant, there is speculation that this time, the punishment for Morant will be a lofty one after he was initially suspended for eight games this past season. He was suspended due to being seen on his Instagram Live video brandishing a gun inside a Denver strip club.

He committed the same act again, two months later when he was seen on his friend’s Instagram Live, holding a weapon while in the passenger seat of a car he was in.

NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver revealed last week that the league has already has made a decision about embattled Morant ‘s future with the NBA. He did state that it will be announced after the NBA Finals are over.

Besides the two flashing gun incidents on Instagram Live, he has been involved in a number of disputes over the past year including him pulling out a gun on a young teenager who was playing basketball at his house. That teenager is suing him for the action.
