Ja Morant explains his anti-Warriors ‘real estate’ tweet

Ja Morant had a little practice match on social media with some of the Golden State Warriors after the NBA Finals, and Morant explains why he had to say something about Golden State despite the Warriors title.

Warriors guard Klay Thompson called out Memphis forward Jaren Jackson Jr. following Golden State’s win. This prompted a response from Morant suggesting the Grizzlies held “a lot of real estate” in the Warriors’ minds.

In an interview with Bleacher Report’s Taylor Rooks, Morant said he didn’t understand why the Warriors were talking about Memphis players after winning another NBA title.

“If I won a championship, I wouldn’t think of any other team or what anyone said months ago,” Morant said. “I’m going to celebrate a championship. I will be happy with my teammates. You see, after winning the championship, it was all Grizzlies. Playing “Whoop That Trick” on their parade, showing it around the club, talking about Jaren, this and that.

Morant added that the tone of the public comments did not match what the two teams were saying to each other privately.

“These guys can tell you, even after we lost on the show, I said to them, ‘I feel like it’s time for you all to get another ring. And they said the same thing. “You’ll all be back, we’ll all be seeing you again, it’s going to be great fun for years to come.”

For now, Draymond Green apparently had the final say on the mini-feud. This probably won’t be the last we’ll hear about these two teams and their budding rivalry. They had a very competitive playoff series and the young Grizzlies look set to take another step forward next season.
