The Memphis Grizzlies point guard Ja Morant seems to have established some sort of friendship with Angel Reese. Over the past few months, there have been numerous instances when these two athletes have sparked dating rumors. Evidently, it all began earlier this year when Reese met Morant before the LSU’s championship parade in Baton Rouge on April 5. Apparently, Ja Morant paid a visit to the campus. There he was seen celebrating with the All-American forward after LSU became the NCAA champions. The speculations about their dating arose after a video went viral of them laughing and dancing to NBA Young Boy’s song “Fresh Prince of Utah.” This is a song that the Grizzlies often dance to when celebrating something.

Soon after, another video of the two surfaced on the internet. Here, the two prominent basketball stars were partying together with other friends. However, while these posts may hint at a lot of speculation, they are just rumors in the end. In fact, Ja and Angel are very good friends who enjoy each other’s company. Further, silence from both sides and later Angel revealing her bae only confirm that Ja and Reese are simply friends and supporters of each other. Moreover, if there is anything that pairs the two together is their love for the sport and living their lives to the fullest.

Nonetheless, the two seem to have each other’s back through thick and thin.

Is Angel Reese a fan?

Apparently, LSU’s star-in-progress Angel Reese is a fan of the Grizzlies’ star performer Ja Morant. This is evident by the fact that she often shares and re-shares things that connect the two together. Recently, the Memphis point guard made a reappearance after a 25-game suspension. While the fans were clearly excited for his return which was proven by the cheers, another person was also happy as Ja made his way through the hardwood.

After the game, fans released a video of Ja returning to his locker room. We can see him shouting with joy but one phrase caught everyone’s attention. As he made his way to the boys’ room, the celebratory footage showed Ja chanting, “I kept receipts, too.” Soon after, the Bayou Barbie took it to her X account to tweet, “I keep receipts too.” While no one knows if this is an inside joke between the two or just their way of showing support, it definitely does not look like a romantic gesture. In fact, this is Angel and Ja being each other’s fans for their skill sets and ability to win matches.

But the question remaining is who has the hearts of these super-popular basketball stars.

On the other hand, Ja Morant is allegedly single as of now. Nonetheless, people have paired many girls with him in the past. At the same time, his ex-girlfriend was the social media influencer Kadre Dixon. However, the two split up earlier this year due to some off-court legal issues that Ja was facing. Currently, the Grizzlies point guard is focusing on his career and trying to put his energy into self-development.

There can be many rumors about the two potential amazing ballers. Nevertheless, only these people can prove what is true and what is not. Apart from being pulled to the magnet of the gossip world, both Ja Morant and Angel Reese are paying attention to their careers as amazing basketball players.

One take at a time

“Spirit of life lies in expression”. As a boy-next-door growing up in the mystic vibes of Ajmer, I would often wonder about the towering ballers’ ability to forge unity for a common goal. Big guys watching each other’s back and creating brouhaha and belligerence for the glory was a tempting feeling.
