Ja Morant Post Shoot-Around on Russell Westbrook

Anthony Sain

Ja Morant admitted a potential match-up with former league MVP Russell Westbrook would be a "wow moment" but in spite of his praise of Monday night's potential opponent, he realizes that he has to be prepared to compete against him.

Morant would speak on the level of disrespect that Westbrook receives as a player even though he averaged a triple-double for three consecutive seasons.  Morant would also say that Westbrook was his favorite player before entering the league but now he has to face him and knows what to expect.
