A new face for point guards across the NBA has arrived and the world has finally taken notice. Ja Morant is a top 10 player. How far can he take Memphis?

When it came to the 2020 NBA Draft, it was Zion Williamson as the clear-cut No. 1 pick and then Ja Morant. Since that, Zion has played a total of 85 games and Ja has played 179. Injuries have stopped Zion from showing his true potential, but this isn’t about him.

Ja Morant has shown the world why he is the best player from the 2020 NBA Draft and has elevated the Memphis Grizzlies to the third seed in the Western Conference.

The city is elevated and they have not felt this feeling since Marc Gasol and his crew were on the team.
