The first-round match-up between the 2 seed Memphis Grizzlies and 7 seed Minnesota Timberwolves was pretty entertaining.
Maybe a little too entertaining.
The teams' respective stars, Ja Morant and Karl Anthony Towns, were full antics during the six-game series, both on the court and on social media.
The media site Ball Don’t Stop detailed some of Ja and KAT's transgressions.

"Todays players are so talented and skilled. The game is in a great place and more popular than ever. But the clout and money associated with being a pro now at the NBA level has changed the psyche of a lot of guys. You see it daily," Ball Don't Stop concluded.
Then league elder Damian Lillard reposted the critique.
Do Ball Don't Stop and Lillard have a point, or are they old men yelling at clouds?
