Ja Morant admits Kyrie Irving has him beat at this unique skill

Sep 12, 2021 0 comments

 Ja Morant is one of the most electrifying young players in the NBA, but the 22 year old conceded that Kyrie Irving has him beat in a particular facet of the game.

Morant is a similar size and stature to Irving, but with more explosiveness around the rim. All of this doesn't mean that the Memphis guard is more a effective inside scorer than his Eastern Conference counterpart.

 With sneaky athleticism and crafty moves in the paint, Irving can almost effortlessly contort his body around defenders and finish at the basket from near impossible angles.

The most astonishing aspect to this is that Irving does most of his magic underneath the rim and without trying to outleap his opponent.

The man dubbed "Uncle Drew," is living proof that nifty moves inside the paint and being one of the league's best finishers doesn't have to be a thunderous dunker or big man to hold that distinction.
