Shaquille O'Neal slams Ja Morant's 'dumb decision': You are not a rapper

Shaquille O'Neal told Ja Morant that he is "not a rapper" and urged the Memphis Grizzlies star to think advice before he ever again tries to do something that could put him, his team and his family in a tough situation. Over the weekend, Morant filmed himself on Instagram Live while flashing a gun.

The Grizzlies have since suspended Morant for at least two games, while the NBA has yet to announce if there will be any suspension or fine for Morant. "It was a bad choice. It was a bad decision. We have to stop putting ourselves in positions where they can take away what we've worked so hard to get to.

Think of the higher power. I feel for him now, but I also feel for his mother and father. What are they going through? So guys, before you make a dumb decision - not a mistake, a dumb decision, a dumb choice - think of the higher power.

Your mother, your father, your children," O'Neal said on TNT's Inside the NBA.

O'Neal to Morant: You are not a rapper

"You got to have enough common sense to know that wasn't going to go the way you wanted it to go. You're not a rapper, you're an NBA player.

I don't know where you're from, I don't know who's hanging out with you. That don't matter. When it's you making the decision, you gotta be smart," O'Neal added.

Morant is no stranger to controversy as several times over the last few months he has found himself in the center of controversy.

In late January, several Indiana Pacers players accused Morant's entourage of training a rad laser at them. Also, there were claims that the red laser was attached to a gun. After the NBA concluded their investigation, Morant's best friend was suspended from Grizzlies home games for the remainder of the season.

However, the league couldn't confirm that the red laser was attached to a gun. Now, Morant is again in the middle of controversy and it is unclear when he will be allowed to return on the court.
