Ja Morant Lists Himself in Top 5 Point Guards in NBA (And Names The Other 4)

You've got to have big-time confidence to be a star player in the NBA, and Memphis Grizzlies' 22-year-old Ja Morant is far from lacking. He just proclaimed himself one of the Top 5 Point Guards in the Association.

Morant told Michael Scotto of Hoops Hype that he's in that elite group along with Steph Curry, Chris Paul, Damian Lillard and Russell Westbrook. We'll have to wait and see what the likes of Trae Young, Jrue Holiday and even De'Aaron Fox have to say about that. 

"The point guard position is so loaded," said Morant. "Some guys have to get left out."

The former Rookie Of The Year has definitely established himself as a force in the league, after averaging 19 points and 7.4 assists in his sophomore season while leading the Grizzlies to their first playoff appearance in four years.

In keeping with that confidence, Morant told Scotto that his goals this season are to be an All-Star, and to make an All-NBA team. Taking it a step further, looking down the road, he expects to be on multiple All-Star teams, and "to be an MVP. Win championships. I want to be in that conversation when it’s all said and done to be considered with the greatest to ever play this game."

As we said, no lacking of confidence for Ja Morant.
