“Poor Kid. Doesn’t Deserve It”: Ja Morant’s Wholesome Moment With Daughter Kaari Leaves NBA Fans Weary of ‘Detrimental’ Star’s Return

Ja Morant has finally rejoined his teammates following a lengthy suspension after the franchise initially sidelined the Memphis Grizzlies superstar for two games due to his gun controversy. However, following a league investigation, NBA suspended Morant for additional eight games as a disciplinary action. Nevertheless, the 2x All-Star is finally back on the court, and he was not alone. Present in the arena to give daddy much needed support was Morant’s adorable little daughter Kaari but her presence only ended up increasing fans’ skepticism on the Grizzlies star’s ‘next move’.

The NBA star guard found himself under public scrutiny when he dangled a gun in front of the camera during an IG Live session. The incident occurred hours after the Grizzlies lost to the Denver Nuggets on March 3.

Ja Morant made his comeback on Wednesday night for the game against the Houston Rockets. It ended up becoming a great night for the Grizzlies as they claimed their fourth consecutive victory after defeating the Rockets by 130-125. Morant dropped 17 points and four rebounds coming off the bench. Following the win, fans witnessed an endearing moment between Morant and his daughter.

In a clip shared by the House of Highlights, Morant was holding his daughter while giving a brief post-game interview on the court. After the reporter congratulated the Murray State alumna on the win, Morant asked his daughter to repeat his famous victory cry. This comes in shortly after Kaari was seen grooving to music on the courtside.

Both Morant and the reporter broke out in laughter as Kaari shouted, “It’s a parade inside my city yeah!” For fans who are unaware, Morant is known to often quote the line from the song ‘Fresh Prince of Utah’ by NBA YoungBoy.

NBA fans express their skepticism toward Ja Morant

Despite gushing over Kaari’s cuteness, the NBA world was not too welcoming about the idea of Ja Morant ‘involving her daughter’. Several fans termed it as a PR stunt and expressed their displeasure about it. One social media user wrote, “Poor kid. Doesn’t deserve it.” Whereas, another fan wrote, “Trying to do a 180 with his public image for sure.” Take a look at a few more of the comments.
