Ja Morant interview leads to spoof quote about Michael Jordan on ESPN

Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant has not lacked confidence in his NBA career.

And on Monday, it led to an embarrassing moment for ESPN.

A fake quote attributed to Morant by parody Twitter account Ballsack Sports made its way onto ESPN’s This Just In the afternoon panelist show. Host David Jacoby (filling in for usual host Max Kellerman) and NBA analyst Kendrick Perkins read out the fake quote, wrongly attributed it to Bleacher Report, and discussed it on Monday’s show.

Jacoby apologized on Twitter afterward to Morant and Taylor Rooks, who had done a recent interview with the Grizzlies standout.
