NBA basketball player Ja Morant renders mixed reviews after returning to the court following his 8-game suspension.

The Memphis Grizzlies point guard, 23, is a star player in his own right. He is the team’s first player in history to be named all-star starter twice. Morant was recently benched due to a social media post that was said to be “detrimental to the league”. In the

post, he does an Instagram live-stream (from a Denver gentleman’s club) where he was shown briefly brandishing a gun. 

Yesterday evening, the crowd gave a roaring cheer and standing ovation as he entered the game during the first quarter. In the end, Morant put up 17 points.

Some, however, think that his consequence was not a sufficient one. ESPN Analyst Jay Williams believes that the NBA should establish more strict rules for situations involving guns and alcohol.

Williams said, “I thought he should’ve been suspended for the rest of the regular season without pay…I think there needs to be a high standard that needs to be set, and a bar that needs to be set, around the league”.
