Last game, Memphis ran through the lakers and beat them
by 13 without Morant, and the lakers were fully loaded with
Russell/AD and Lebron.

I know Ja is the face of the franchise, but he took damn near 30
shots and only had 2 assists. They barely beat the Lakers this
time without AD.

Ja isn’t a facilitating PG, but on a team with some good young
scorers in Bane, Jackson and Brooks, and Slow Mo can get his own shot
as well, a facilitator is needed more than a star scoring guard.

Jones had 7 dimes and plays better defense.

He will be electrifying to watch and put up insane numbers,
but they will not go far in the playoffs with that.

He has time to mature, but after seeing Memphis run through the
entire league when he was out, he is going to have to get better
on defense and with ball distribution.
