SHOW NOTES: I'm a huge sports fan. And follow the NBA closely as a hobby. Ja Morant, the young Memphis Grizzlies star, is definitely one of my favorite players to watch. My whole family loves him.

But sadly, over the past year, he has had at least 3 incidents with guns, that have made it clear, to say the least, that Ja is not quite on the right path.

Truthfully, a full fledged intervention needed to happen after the first incident. And it never happened. It definitely needed to happen after the second incident. And it never happened. In fact, nothing substantive happened either time.

Then, this weekend, Ja could be seen flashing a gun on his Instagram live, and it seemed to be the straw that broke the camels back. While he's now suspended from the team for what might've been the least dangerous of the 3 incidents we know of, this is bigger than basketball. We need to be thinking about this young man's life.

Let me unpack and explain it.
