Ja Morant seems to be a boom or bust player in my eyes. He’s freakishly athletic and potential is endless. If he can learn to shoot a consistent jump shot, he’ll be tough to stop at the next level. I like Morant a lot more than RJ Barrett for the number two overall pick. It all depends on the draft lottery at that point.
