Mar 4, 2023

Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant mimicked a gun motion when celebrating a teammate's three-point make hours after a police report said Morant allegedly exposed a gun after punching a teenager "12 or 13 times" during a pickup basketball game last summer.

Morant was on the bench during the Grizzles' game against the Houston Rockets when Desmond Bane made a corner three.

Morant then exploded in celebration on the sidelines, using his fingers to mimic a gun motion.

The Grizzlies defeated the Rockets 113-99, moving to 38-23 on the season.

In the report by The Washington Post, Morant reportedly punched a teenager in the head "12 to 13 times" in a pickup basketball game at Morant’s house last summer.
