Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant apparently didn’t learn his lesson when he was suspended for a good portion of last season for showing off a gun at a strip club during an Instagram live session.
On Saturday, Morant once again showed up on a live stream appearing to brandish a gun while singing along to rap lyrics.

Morant was suspended for 8 games last season and ended up losing out on $39 million when he was kept off the All-NBA team.
NBA commissioner Adam Silver admonished him at the time.
“Ja’s conduct was irresponsible, reckless and potentially very dangerous,” NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said in a statement. “It also has serious consequences given his enormous following and influence, particularly among young fans who look up to him.”
It’s going to be interesting to see how Silver and the league react to Morant’s latest video.
