Ja Morant's Powerade ads pulled

- by

Ja Morant’s off-the-court troubles are having real-world consequences — including potentially putting a dent in the NBA superstar’s wallet. Coca-Cola’s Powerade pulled its ads featuring the 23-year-old point guard after the Memphis Grizzlies suspended him because he flashed a gun on social media during a wild night at a Denver-area strip joint, according to Sports Illustrated. It’s unclear whether the popular drink-maker has severed ties with Morant, but the company also stripped his likeness from the brand’s website.

People can say what they want about Dillon Brooks… but what he has done is give the Memphis Grizzlies Swag. With the absence of Ja Morant he has become the LEADER of that team!!! Carry the hell on… – 11:30 PM

So, Danny Green felt compelled to ‘blab’ Ja Morant likes to party. Was that really necessary? I was around pro ball for 50 years & encountered 1 or 2 players per team who weren’t tempted 2 do same. What’s next, Danny, gonna ‘reveal’ names of coaches who like to drink to excess? – 2:24 PM

Memphis Grizzlies face multiple problems, including Ja Morant’s gun incident, Dillon Brook’s shenanigans, and Desmond Bane’s injury 🤯
However, there’s one more important thing that matters more than all of those above:

More on this storyline

The new March 2 snaps show the bad-boy baller at raunchy Shotgun Willie’s in Glendale, CO, transfixed by the backboard of a G-string-clad brunette straddling his lap inside in the VIP room — and almost every inch of surface covered in cash. “The whole room is full of money — it’s literally a pile. You’d need a rake,” according to one club insider who witnessed the eye-popping hardwood scene. The vaunted 23-year-old point guard, who re-signed with the Grizzlies last year in a 5-year extension deal that could be worth up to $231 million, shelled out at least $50,000 in cash tips in the two-night booty bender, two employees told The Post. -via New York Post / March 12, 2023
