One of the finest emerging teams in the West had a sad season finale thanks to the Lakers, who won the series 4-2.

The entire NBA community was talking after this surprising loss.
And the majority of the comments berated the Grizzlies.
Ja Morant’s assertion that his squad was doing well in the West was widely ridiculed.
Good in the west

It turned out that his team’s performance wasn’t really fine due to Western Conference competitors.
they’ll be fine in CANCUN

Others opted to draw attention to Dillon Brooks’ statement that he would appreciate LeBron James only if he scored 40 points against him.
James didn’t score 40 points, but his team did in another way because they won the championship game by 40 points.
Tonight: LAKERS WIN BY 40
Hope this is good enough for Dillon Brooks

Others believed that Morant’s devastating loss proves he will never win a championship ring.
It’s obviously too early to know if that’s the case, but Morant is undoubtedly dissatisfied with the way this season ended.
Calling it. Ja gets no rings in his career

Everyone questioned whether Memphis youth would be able to move past LA’s experience at the start of this series.
In the end, a combination of both helped the Lakers defeat the Grizzlies.
A true team effort, James, Anthony Davis, D Angelo Russell, Austin Reaves, and others all contributed significantly.
Everybody joined in, and the Grizzlies were unable to keep up.
The Lakers’ supporters are eager to advance to the next round and continue to make fun of the Grizzlies.
