DESMOND BANE’S LEAP GIVES JA MORANT, GRIZZLIES CO-STAR THEY NEED

Desmond Bane laughed and rocked back his chair onto two legs to answer one question with another.

Two days prior, superstar point guard Ja Morant called Memphis’ backcourt “top two, [and] not [number] two,” when asked where the Grizzlies’ guard duo ranked among the rest of the NBA. So, naturally, Bane fielded an inquiry regarding the accuracy of Morant’s statement.

“What you think?” he asked. “We ain’t gonna say it if we don’t believe it.”
