Lil Wayne has been supportive of Ja even in the past when he got suspended twice from the NBA for a showcase of guns. In his support, Wayne said: “I know him from dunking and jumping, and I only started knowing him when I started paying attention to him around his last year of college. He come from like a town of 3,000 people. Like what? What y’all expect? Y’all have him $200 million.”

Fans react to Ja Morant as the future face of the NBA

Wayne’s claim has been met with resistance from fans. Despite the sporting talent that Ja possesses, fans have been critical of his off-the-game antics. Ja has been in multiple controversies and faced 2 suspensions in 2023 and made his first appearance against New Orleans Pelicans since suspension. Ja scored 34 points and secured the winning points in a close 115-113 victory.

Fans have never doubted Ja’s abilities. Many fans agree with Wayne’s narrative and believe Ja could be the face of the league. The other half of the NBA community feels that a player with more discipline and a controversy-less reputation should be the future face of the NBA. Fans also joked about Ja could be the face of the Grand Theft Auto franchise. A fan agreed with Wayne but stated it’s a possibility only if Ja Morant stays off social media. Another fan agreed as well as long as Ja stopped his firearm showcase antics.

One fan went on to comment how Luka Doncic could be the perfect choice as he would bring in the European audience and that would financially improve the league. Some pointed out Stephen Curry. Giannis Antetokounmpo has also received shouts for his conduct and abilities. Ja Morant is an extremely talented player and has a bright future ahead of him. With the huge number of great talents in the league and a narrow sight of LeBron’s retirement in the present, the next face of the NBA is a highly anticipated topic.
