Ja Morant dedicates win over Lakers to Twitter troll

Ja Morant

Ja Morant apparently draws inspiration from some interesting places.

After dropping a huge 27-6-14 line in a blowout win over the Western Conference-best Los Angeles Lakers on Saturday, the Memphis Grizzlies star rookie dedicated the victory to a Twitter troll in his postgame interview.

“I’m thankful for this guy who tweeted and said I don’t have that fire in my eye no more,” said Morant. “That game right there was for him. That’s what I do, I prove people wrong each and every night, and that’s for him right there.”

Soon after giving the interview, Morant pointed out the offending tweet in question from a user named Daniel Greer, who had indeed taken a shot at his competitive fire in a post earlier this weekend.

The 20-year-old Morant is the frontrunner for Rookie of the Year honors, and Saturday’s win snapped a five-game losing streak for the Grizzlies. He recently took offense to a much more notable person coming his way on social media, and he is probably hoping that the folks just keep on tweeting at him.
