Ja Morant’s Comment on Michael Jordan Going Viral

Ja Morant is a confident young man, perhaps too confident.

It’s one thing to be confident in the NBA, and then there’s Grizzlies star  Ja Morant. In a recent interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks, the Grizzlies star said that if he played in Michael Jordan’s era, the all-time great would’ve been no match for him.

“I wish I would’ve played in his generation, though,” Morant said on Jordan. “Just how he go about the game, that mindset he had … I would like to play against him. … I would’ve cooked him, too.

“Nobody got more confidence than 12,” he continued. “I’m never go and say nobody gon’ beat me in one-on-one or anything.”

Jordan has a three-inch height advantage over Morant and made a living off playing one-on-one during his historic career.

The 22-year-old will never get his shot against the legend.

He may regret those words, especially if he never wins a Championship. He still has plenty of time.
