Tametrius Jamel Morant is a professional US Basketball player known by his nickname Ja Morant. In his short career so far, he has gained a lot of respect due to his ability. But throughout this time he has been in and out of a relationship with KK Dixon, who we will find out more about in this post.
In the 2020 season, Morant was named NBA Rookie of the Year. Due to his consistently high output, he even qualified for the rookie extension. Despite turning the heads of other teams with his performances, he stayed loyal to the Grizzlies.

Since joining the Grizzlies, he has consistently proved himself a great asset to his side. His average of 17.8 points in his rookie year is only increasing since then, as he is averaging 24.4 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 6.8 assists per game this season.
Moreover, he was selected for the NBA All-Star Game in 2022 as a starter for the first time and also won the NBA Most Improved Player Award at the end of the season.
He has cemented his place as one of the legends in Basketball history after consistently putting the court to flames with his offensive and defensive skills since joining.
