Ja Morant Reminds Me Of Allen Iverson
I have never compared another basketball player to Allen Iverson who I consider to be the most influential athlete of my lifetime. Luckily I am not talking about Influence I am talking basketball.
Based on Allen Iverson’s being listed at 6’0” and 165 lbs, he had no business scoring the as much as he did in the NBA. Ja Morant is a little bit taller than Iverson but they have a similar build. He too has no business scoring the ball at the rate that he does.
Just like Iverson in his prime, once Morant decides to make his move to the basket, it’s virtually nothing you can do about it. You have to hope you have help behind you but that only leaves another man open and Morant is an excellent passer.
Just like Iverson, Morant does not have to point guard. Iverson thrived in his role as the off-guard coming off screens and iso ball.
Whatever team drafts Ja Morant, they are getting straight up scorer from day one.
