Yes Morant sat down with him recently Malika Andreas from ESPN to discuss the Memphis Grizzlies’ place in the Western Conference hierarchy.

Memphis (19-11) is second in the West behind the Nuggets, who have a similar record. Morant is averaging 27.0 points, 6.4 rebounds and 7.8 assists per game, with 45.4 percent shooting from the field and 34.6 percent from the archery. Morant has done a lot of heavy lifting and Desmond Bane is still off duty after sustaining a sprained big toe in November.

However, Morant is confident that Memphis has a place in the NBA hierarchy. The 2022 All-Star told Andrews that he believes the Boston Celtics (22-9) are the team to beat and the Grizzlies need to assert the main team to win a championship. When NBA Today’s host asked about the Western Conference, Morant said, “I’m fine out west.”

The strong words come a season after the Grizzlies finished runners-up in the West, losing a six-game second-round series to the eventual champion Warriors. The Southwest Division winners gave the Warriors an uphill battle, but a Morant knee injury and the Warriors’ championship DNA were too much for the Grizzlies.

Overall, the 22-game playoff run was marked by plenty of jaw-clicking, tenacious defense, and notable shooting performances from a Grizzlies team trying to burst through the championship scene. Memphis will look to exorcise those demons this season and make it to the Conference Finals and possibly beyond as the Warriors struggle with their win-and-development-now approach to the season.
