r/nba [NBA] Best of 2021 Winner Feb 06 '23 Take My Energy 1

Shannon Sharpe on Ja Morant: "For some reason he wants to surround himself with these type of people. Bruh, you're not hard. This is not your life. You got a $200 million contract and you want people in the NBA to think you hood, to think you gangster."

I did not expect the biggest Grizzlies rival to become Shannon Sharpe this year.


u/Any_Ingenuity_4390 Feb 06 '23 Gold

I don’t think he’s being a rival here. He’s giving him genuine and correct advice. It’s not a good thing to “be about that life”. Ja doesn’t need to do this shit or pretend to be someone he’s not. He will probably get another 250-300m after his current contract ends too. It would be stupid to surround himself with people that would be detrimental to that goal.


u/KptKrondog [MEM] Stromile Swift Feb 06 '23

Yeah. Ja is being an idiot. Shannon just letting him know it.


u/sparknostalgia Feb 06 '23

Shannon is doing what Ja’s Daddy should be doing


u/testbug0 [GSW] Wilt Chamberlain Feb 06 '23

Ja's dad is too busy living vicariously through his son's achievements to care.


u/TOMdMAK Lakers Feb 06 '23

Busy wearing sunglasses indoor thinking he’s usher


u/BridgesOnB1kes Trail Blazers Feb 07 '23

I saw Usher in person once and it did not disappoint. 2009ish in the depths of the Moda center(Rose Garden at the time) and dude rode past me shirtless on a Segway wearing shades.

Dude is too focused on being the cool dad who is just like one of the boys, he forgot he still has to be the responsible dad that should guide his son in such a crucial phase of his life.

One in a billion opportunity to earn hundreds of million to play basketball and being pushed as one of the faces of the NBA but he's just letting his idiotic son roleplay a gangsta

You're a multimillion-dollar athlete. Why the fuck would you care what anyone thinks about how "tough" or "gangster" you are? Move on with your life.

People only adapt that style of living when they feel they have little choice in the matter. You're a grown man with access to all of the resources in the world and more. You don't have to be like that.

Can't convince me that promo he cut to Dave McMenamin in the tunnel didn't destroy them.

u/Foreign_Salary_1789 Trail Blazers Feb 06 '23

The Rock's famous Billy Gunn promo, for those unfamiliar.

I'm a Flair guy myself when it comes to promos, but certainly one of the best promos in wrestling history as he had the crowd in the palm of his hand.

"Oh dear God. You see, my name's Billy, and I just won King of the Ring. But there's one problem... everyone still thinks that I absolutely suck"

Oh my God. So good. The Rock can just bury you with one promo.

The South Park signs, the old WWF logo, it all brings me back to when I was 12 and the world was simpler.

I mean, you see some generally hard looking motherfuckers all riled up, then they hop in their blacked out SUV, then a laser points out from the window right at your chest.

There’s really not much else to think, I’d shit my pants as well.

from a legal standpoint, doing something deliberate, knowing that it will make another person fear imminent harm, is assault. And someone can try to be cute about whether it was a gun or a laser pointer or whatnot, but a judge isn't going to buy it- they're going to say, "You knew very well what you were doing."

This is probably one of the rare instances of a player benefitting from being on a small market team. Because if he was on the Lakers or Knicks or something, this story would be wayyy bigger.


u/MitchEatsYT Lakers Feb 06 '23

If he was on the Lakers or Knicks this wouldn’t be happening

His small town boys wouldn’t be able to roll like this in a city like LA or NY and those teams absolutely wouldn’t allow it

Seriously, street cred isn’t redeemable for shit.

You don’t get fast tracked into the club.

You don’t get an upgrade to business class at the airport.

You don’t even get extra fries at McDonald’s.

Street cred is for insecure idiots whose only contribution to society is a willingness to harm others.

I’m a nerd, I’m cool with that. My brother killed a man hanging out with idiots who were “all about that life.” It fucking ruined his life trying to be tough.

Meanwhile, I got a PhD and have a good life. He could have had a great life, instead, he got 14 years in prison and the highlight of his week was us showing up with plastic bags full of quarters and buying him frozen wings and chips during our visit.

Fuck that gangsta bullshit. Want to be tough, show up every day and put in the work and help others without an expectation of reward.

Far too many men, especially young men and especially young black men, often feel a need to perform masculinity and either don't know how, are unwilling to, or are unable to perform it in healthy ways

It's why guys who've made it out will still get caught up in that lifestyle (Pooh Sheisty, Young Thug and the pending RICO case with YSL). It's why we've seen legit dozens of NBA/NFL players get caught with guns or other nonsense charges after they've made it to the pros.

I went to an HBCU and remember freshman year seeing guys who were acting/claiming like they were living in or coming from the street light. In my mind I'm thinking "you filled out a FASFA, got financial aid taken care of and registered for classes, you can let the street life go".
