Ja Morant's father sent a message to Zion Williamson.
Just about every selection committee is predicting that Williamson will become number 1 (and possibly the Knicks) in the next project, but after Morant's super show in the 12th seeded Murray State thwarted by the fifth, Marquette , his father thinks that he should go there before the Duke star.
"Is there something before one?" Said Tee Morant to Bleacher Report. "Yes, zero. Let him go to zero. "
Morant's father was excited after his triple-double on Thursday. He had 17 points, 16 assists and 11 rebounds, the first triple-double in the NCAA tournament since Draymond Green did with Michigan State in 2012.
"What he's done here is proving that he's the best player in the country," Tee added.
Ja, a leader who loves the ball in his hands, will likely be the No. 2 choice behind Williamson, who wins his stage Friday night, when No. 1 seed Duke was seeded No. 16, North Dakota St. , at the Colonial Life Arena in South Carolina.
