Memphis Grizzlies superstar Ja Morant believes there is only one team in his team’s way of winning a championship this season, and they aren’t in the NBA’s Western Conference.
For a second straight season, the Grizzlies look like they will be one of the elites of the West. The team finished with the second-best record in the conference last season as Morant put the league on notice that Memphis was no longer a team of the future, but actually a team of the now.
In the spring, the Grizzlies seemed primed for at least a birth in the conference finals, but an unfortunate injury to the 23-year-old derailed those hopes and they were bounced from the NBA playoffs by eventual league champions, the Golden State Warriors.
With the team owning the second-best record in the conference currently (19-11), Morant’s confidence is sky-high and he doesn’t see any team in the Western Conference that will stop him and his squad from reaching the NBA Finals in 2022-2023.
