              Ja Morant would be a great Grizzles player when he will soon become an NBA player after college.

                              My Grizzlies better not mess up this 2nd pick that was gifted to us by the basketball gods and pass on Ja.
                              He'd change the face of the franchise.

                                            He’s going to be A Smart Russell Westbrook Or A Derrick Rose

                                                Oh I'd love for him or Zion to be a Bull. But knowing how the draft lottery goes Bulls will be in the top 7 at best and continue to be mediocre with GarPax and Reinsdorf controlling the team. My only hope is for the young players on the team rn to change things 🔥🙃🔥
