During an appearance on the I am an athlete Stephen Jackson’s podcast took Ja Morant to task for his second suspension from court for displaying a gun on social media.
“I was one of those guys who actually batted for him because I was throwing a lot of money at a young age and I made a mistake,” the former NBA star said. “All the people like me who stood up for him said it was a mistake. He’s a little kid. We can’t fight for him this time. That was the stupidest thing he could have done. That’s a stupid move. His parents should be ashamed.”
Jackson previously commented on Morant’s gun incident in March. Morant was suspended for displaying a firearm at a club and the incident was also broadcast live.
“The only thing I would say yes is have the people around you who care about you and who care about your job the way you love it most,” Jackson said at the time. “Don’t have people around who care about your job because they care about what you’re going to do for them. Make the people around you care enough about your job that they don’t want you to lose it.
