Ja Morant did his thing on the court on New Year’s day and scored 35 points, and his Grizzlies pulled away in the fourth quarter to beat the Sacramento Kings 118-108. Morant remains the most entertaining player in the NBA.
However, Morant’s best play of the night — and the best highlight of the game — was when he gave a new pair of signed Ja 1 shoes to a young fan courtside and made his day.
Players giving their shoes to fans courtside remains one of the NBA’s best (and least discussed) traditions. That’s how you connect with fans.
