Ja’s basketball journey began in his hometown of Dalzell, however, it was during his college days with the Murray State Racers that he started to make waves in the basketball world. Ja’s sophomore season was a breakout year that catapulted him into the national spotlight; during the 2018-2019 season, he led the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in assists per game and ranked second in scoring, earning him the status of a consensus All-American.
After that season at Murray State, Morant made himself eligible for the 2019 NBA Draft (thus dropping out of college); he was one of the top prospects of his class, and his style of play had NBA teams eager to pick him in the first round. He was selected as the second overall pick by the Memphis Grizzlies, setting the stage for his professional career.
Ja’s transition to the NBA seemed easy for him, and he made an immediate impact during his rookie season in 2019-2020; notably, he was named the NBA Rookie of the Year, solidifying his status as one of the league’s brightest young stars.
Ja’s arrival in Memphis marked the beginning of a new era for the Grizzlies; as the face of the franchise, he quickly embraced the role of a leader, and played an instrumental part in the team’s rebuilding efforts. In his second season, Morant helped guide the Grizzlies to the playoffs, showcasing his ability to perform under pressure and his potential to lead Memphis to future success. He recorded a career-high of 44 points on 23 December 2020, when the Grizzlies were defeated by the San Antonio Spurs 131-119; his play-offs debut was on 23 May 2021, when the Grizzlies defeated the Utah Jazz 112-109, but they lost the series in five games.
Ja was selected to his first All-Star Game on 27 January 2022, and then scored his new career-high of 52 points on 28 February in a win against the San Antonio Spurs; he was named NBA Most Improved Player. The Grizzlies reached the play-offs again but were defeated in six games by the Golden State Warriors.
Ja signed a new $193 million contract with the Grizzlies on 6 July 2022.
Off the court, he’s been actively involved in charitable and community efforts.
Who is her mother KK Dixon?
American social media star and model Kadre Dixon – aka KK Dixon – was born under the zodiac sign Virgo on 31 August 1999 in Antoine, Arkansas USA. She’s perhaps known best for being a former girlfriend of Ja Morant, while she’s also known for her self-titled Instagram account, which is today followed by more than a million people, however, Dixon’s recently deactivated her account for unknown reasons.
Dixon was raised in Antoine alongside her siblings Baylee and Tyrik, by their mother Christal Dixon and father DeShannon Dixon; not many details have been disclosed about Dixon’s family because she respects their privacy, but it’s believed that her mother was an accountant and her father a police officer.
She studied at a local high school and was mostly into sports during her four years there, as she was on her school’s basketball and volleyball teams; Dixon also enjoyed appearing in school plays and at one point wanted to pursue a career in the film industry. She matriculated in 2017 and in the same year gave birth to Kaari, two months prematurely; this led her to focus on raising her daughter rather than enrolling at college.
It’s believed that Dixon hasn’t been working since the birth of her daughter and that Ja’s giving her child support every month so that his daughter won’t lack a thing.
Dixon’s still earning some money thanks to her popularity on various social media networks. Her Instagram account (even though currently deactivated) seems to be her main source of income, while she’s also quite active on Twitter; she launched her Twitter account in September 2018 and it’s today followed by over 2,000 people, while Dixon’s tweeted over 800 times. She mostly tweets her thoughts on various matters, while she often quotes the Bible as she’s a deeply religious Christian.
Dixon’s also active on Facebook but doesn’t allow her fans to interact with her on this network as she uses it only to chat with her family and friends; she has just a few over 100 friends on Facebook.
Dixon’s quite popular on TikTok, as over 230,000 people are following her on this network, while all her videos combined have amassed nearly six million likes; most feature her spending time with her daughter, while she’s lip syncing and dancing in others.
