Jamie Morant the mother of Grizzlies Star Ja Morant Revealed the installation of the basic principles of being a great person to her kids
Jamie was also quite the athlete. She was a point guard in basketball and a utility player in softball during her college career. She believes Ja’s athleticism comes from her as he followed in her footsteps as a point guard.
“Most people think he gets his athletic skills from his dad, but everything besides the dunking is all me,” Jamie says with a laugh. “Being a point guard and playing certain positions I played in softball — you have to be the team leader, love what you’re doing, and be mentally tough because everything will fall on you.”

Jamie doesn’t have the visibility as her husband Tee Morant but she’s at Grizzlies home games supporting her son. “I may not be in the spotlight like Tee, but best believe do something to my kids and you will meet mama,” she says sternly. “I do not play about my kids!”
“As a mother, I instilled the basic principles of being a great person to my kids,” Jamie says. “Be polite, respectful, don’t see color, focus on your education, set goals and focus on them, work hard for what you want,” she says. “Give to others.”
She continues, “But as a parent all we can do is hope that they carry that info along with them throughout their life’s journey.”
Jamie became pregnant with Ja while she was in college and gave birth to him months after she graduated from then Claflin College, now Claflin University with a BS in Biology.
