Ja Morant Laments He’s Been Drug Tested 6 Times This Season

Ja Morant recently took to Twitter to complain about being frequently drug tested. His tweet has since gone viral, garnering mixed reactions from fans online.

“Been Drug tested like 6 times this season,” he wrote. “Walked in the arena and found out I got another one today,” Morant added.

“Shit sad they don’t respect us,” someone commented. “Someone with big boy money pulling stingz cuz they don’t want him to be great,” another person wrote. “Dang somebody snitching,” added someone else.

Morant was only lightly recruited by NCAA Division I programs and unranked by recruiting services, despite having been named All-Region Most Valuable Player three times and earning All-State honors at Crestwood High School in Sumter, South Carolina.

Nevertheless, he made an immediate impact at Murray State University, earning first-team all-conference honors in the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) as a freshman.

He had a breakout sophomore season; it saw him win OVC Player of the Year as well as lead the NCAA in assists. Also as a sophomore, Morant became the first player in NCAA history to average 20-plus points and 10-plus assists per game for a single season.

Morant was selected by the Grizzlies with the second overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft and named the NBA Rookie of the Year in 2020. He was named to his first NBA All Star Game in 2022 as a starter, and won the NBA Most Improved Player Award at the conclusion of the season, Morant was also selected to his first All-NBA Team in 2022.
