MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) — Ja Morant borrowed a professional camera for photos of his teammates and even turned the lens on reporters covering the Memphis Grizzlies’ media day Monday.

And yes, the Grizzlies feel ready for the brighter lights that come with posting the NBA’s second-best record followed by a run to the Western Conference semifinals.

Morant says he’s extremely proud of how hard the Grizzlies worked this offseason to improve and be a better team.
