This week we celebrate the sheer athleticism of Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant

Ja Morant almost poster dunk over Kevin Love

Ja Morant, the Memphis Grizzlies' dynamic guard, has risen to prominence in the NBA, captivating fans with his remarkable talent and electrifying playstyle. Since his debut, Morant has consistently demonstrated his explosive presence on the court, characterised by his blistering speed, extraordinary vertical leap, and adeptness in both scoring and orchestrating plays for his teammates.

The point guard’s near-poster dunk over Kevin Love in 2019 is a vivid testament to the Memphis Grizzlies star's boundless ambition and aerial prowess, even in the early stages of his NBA career. Just two months after making his debut, Morant's audacious attempt against the Cleveland Cavaliers spoke volumes about his confidence and athleticism.

While he may not have completed the dunk, the attempt alone was enough to draw comparisons to Vince Carter's legendary leap over Frederic Weis in the 2000 Olympics—an analogy that underscores the sheer audacity and spectacle of Morant's effort.

This moment, despite culminating in zero points for Memphis, was pivotal in showcasing Morant as one of the league's most electrifying talents. It wasn't merely the attempt that captured the imagination of fans and fellow players; it was the fearless intent behind it. 

Winning the Rookie of the Year award later that season, Morant solidified his reputation not just as a high-flyer but as a player with the potential to shape the future of the Grizzlies and the NBA. 

Let’s take a quick recap below:
