That’s a great attitude. Morant isn’t blaming anyone for overlooking him or arguing he deserves the spot more than Conley. He’s saying he needs it’s on him to impress all those voting even more.
The young guard and his Memphis Grizzlies will be better off because of that approach. Morant has been known to take negatives and turn them into positives. He’s doing it again here.
