Lil Wayne Views Ja Morant As The Obvious Choice To Become The Next Face Of The NBA After LeBron James
Ja Morant presents a complex image. On one hand, he’s faced several controversies like handling a gun at a Colorado strip club and displaying a gun on Instagram live. He’s also been accused of assaulting a teenager during a basketball game and threatening a mall security guard.
On the other end, Morant’s impact in the NBA is undeniable. He’s not just a top player in the league, but also one of the most popular figures in the NBA. He’s a two-time All-Star starter, a leading figure in jersey sales, and launched his first Nike signature shoe earlier this year.
His playstyle and fierce mentality on the court are also top-notch and highly entertaining, making him a favorite among fans and observers. With all this in mind, renowned American hip hop artist Lil Wayne views Morant as the obvious choice to become the next face of the NBA after Los Angeles Lakers superstar LeBron James.
“To me, I think the obvious answer is Ja [Morant],” Wayne told Rooks when she asked who he thought should be next up. “Because the NBA is entertainment. It always has been. What I mean by that, there was a Michael Jordan, that was just like, God. You gonna watch these Atlanta Hawk games just to see what Dominique [Wilkins], just to see if he’s going to get ’em one off.”
“I’m going to watch these Portland games to see if Clyde going to get him one… Ja’s teams are actually competitive when he’s there, when’s he’s doing his thing.”
