Until Ja Morant's recent team-imposed hiatus from the NBA, the Memphis Grizzlies star point guard was enjoying a career year in what many perceived as a potential championship run for the franchise that drafted him back in 2019. Unfortunately for the 23-year-old, his off-court exploits, which include gun-related incidents and assault allegations, have overshadowed the Grizzlies bid for an NBA title as of late. So, as commentary from celebrities such as Shannon Sharpe, Skip Bayless, Stephen A. Smith, Patrick Beverly, and Fat Joe continues to pour in, two more big names have decided to weigh in on the latest craze that has taken sporting news by storm.

In a recent episode of Cam'ron's sports podcast, It Is What It Is, the "Oh Boy" rapper and his in-studio guest, Mase, shared their thoughts on why Ja Morant has been in one dilemma after another lately. As the two Harlem-based emcees exchanged takes, Cam'ron floated an interesting theory by comparing Ja Morant to the late Gary Coleman—a child actor from the 80s who famously starred as Arnold Jackson in the hit sitcom Different Strokes. Some of Gary Coleman's lowlights off-camera included assault, a hit-and-run incident, bankruptcy, and more. Cam'ron made the comparison by indicating that too much money and responsibility have been heaped on Ja Morant's shoulders at such a young age, and it appears to be overwhelming him.
