Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe slammed Memphis Grizzlies All-Star Ja Morant over his latest gun incident.
Sharpe initially said he was disappointed in Morant for his actions after he was previously suspended for a gun incident while intoxicated at a Denver-area nightclub. That incident led to an eight-game suspension by the league.
After reading Morant’s statement regarding this latest situation, which Morant posted Tuesday night, Sharpe did not believe it was genuine.

Morant issued his apology after an incident in which he appears to brandish a weapon while in a car with a friend, Davonte Pack, who has also been involved in off-court incidents with Morant in the past. One included the Indiana Pacers claiming that a red laser was pointed at their team bus from an SUV with Morant inside.
«I know I have disappointed a lot of people who have supported me,» Morant’s apology said, via ESPN. «This is a journey and I recognize that there is more work to be done. My words may not mean much at this time, but I take full responsibility for my actions. I vow to keep working on myself.»
The Grizzlies have suspended Morant from all team activities and while the NBA continues to investigate the situation, a heavy suspension is expected.
NBA Commissioner Adam Silver addressed the situation ahead of the NBA Draft Lottery on ESPN Tuesday night, noting that «the video is a little grainy and all, but I’m assuming the worst.»
Morant previously checked into a Florida clinic after his first incident in Denver. He also admitted after the Grizzlies’ elimination from the playoffs that his off-court incidents were distracting the team.
