You know who Ja Morant is because you appreciate good basketball and great basketball players.
On Monday, Morant and his Murray State Racers went into Alabama and nearly pulled the upset, falling 78-72. It was a disappointing loss for the Racers, but Morant did some things that, frankly, we could not ignore. It would have been irresponsible of us to do so. We owe you some Ja Morant dunk porn, and that’s what you’re going to get.
First, the play of the night. The one you’ll see on ESPN and around the Twitters for the next 24 hours.

And the obligatory Very Blurry Screenshot where you see two Alabama players pining for the sweet release of death.
Another angle, thanks to this guy’s computer:

Here’s a casual 360 during warmups, just for fun:

Ja Morant is a gift to us all. He finished with a career-high 38 points — his second game in a row with a career high, per Greg in our Slack channel a few minutes ago. [Fact check: Greg is correct]. He also had a triple-double the other day, but no one cares about that when he’s murdering opponents from the SEC.
