The Memphis Grizzlies have taken the league by storm, exceeding most expectations to put a stamp on their authority with or without JA Morant. While many viewed the point guard as the main figure in leading the scoring charts for the team, even in his absence, the Memphis Grizzlies cruised in red-hot form and managed to maintain an 18-2 record. Which has caused Colin Cowherd to take a skeptical view of the 22-year-old.

Colin opened up about the Memphis Grizzlies’ 18-2 form on the latest episode of The Herd. In this context, he also spoke about the MVP candidacy and the presence of JA Morant in the league. Colin compared the “flashy point guard” to players like Derrick Rose, suggesting the former was unable to improve his teammates’ play. In a simpler way, he doesn’t have the same impact on his team’s performance as MJ and LeBron did in their MVP year.

Colin Cowherd thinks JA Morant is a conspicuous point guard

He began by saying: “I like JA Morant, I think he’s sensational, great. He’s going to be a Hall of Famer, I love him. But the “most valuable” player Michael Jordan left his team in his prime, the Bulls didn’t go 18-2. LeBron left the Cavaliers, Miami and Pat Riley, the results were disastrous. John Wall, Derrick Rose, Russell Westbrook, JA Morant, do these players elevate others?”

Cowherd further suggested, stating that if MVP votes were to be captured for his family, it would be for his wife and everyone around her.

Whenever I criticize JA Morant, people yell COLIN! He is different. No he’s not, he’s Derrick Rose who, by the way, dominated the league for 3 years until LeBron James said, ‘Take it back kid.’ Don’t tell me he’s (JA Morant) different, that’s actuality bias. Many of you in the media are dependent on emotions.

“JA Morant is Derrick Rose, small, spectacular, intriguing, amazing and a transformational talent. But I don’t think he makes everyone better.”

Finally, Colin Cowherd supported his argument by comparing JA Morant and the flashy point guard to running quarterbacks in the NFL. While guys like Russell Wilson are way better than Tom Brady, but have they won 7 Super Bowls? No. But will that be the case for most improved player favorite JA Morant in the years to come? In the NBA? Remains to be seen.
