Ja Morant Rookie of the Year
Justin Ford-USA TODAY Sports

When it comes to young talent in the NBA, Memphis Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant is quickly earning the right to be called one of the league’s most exciting young stars.

A player who seemingly puts up highlight reel-worthy dunks (like this) on a nightly basis, he did it again Friday night against the San Antonio Spurs.

Check out this play. Morant turns exceptional defense into jaw-dropping offense with a reverse jam.

Just another reminder of how talented and special a player Morant is. And at the age of 20, this young star is just getting started.
