SLIDESHOW: Ja Morant’s first basketball camp was a slam dunk



For the first time ever, Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant hosted a Basketball Camp for kids. And despite a season of turmoil for the team in general and Morant specifically, hundreds of kids turned out to get basketball pointers from one of the NBA’s brightest stars.

The camp was held at the Memphis Sportsplex and Event Center.

“Being around kids has brought a lot of light into my life lately,” Morant said, alluding to the dark days of his 25-game suspension and season ending shoulder injury. “I just want to appreiciate y’all for bringing support after everything that went on . . .”

While his own daughter Khari practiced her own dribbling skills, Morant went on to advise the kids to listen to their parents and stay in school. “All love from 12!”
