Morant’s video will get extra scrutiny in light of recent stories and allegations he has faced. It comes just days after allegations surfaced that he punched a 17-year-old during a pickup basketball game and flashed a gun at him.
The NBA also investigated reports of a postgame incident involving Morant, his entourage, and the Indiana Pacers, with some associated with the Pacers believing that someone from Morant’s entourage pointed a gun at their team bus following an altercation. With all that taken into account, this new video is a bad look for him.
Morant is averaging 27.1 points and 8.2 assists per game on the season.
