For the most part, it has been a rather busy offseason for the Memphis Grizzlies. However, in recent weeks, things have seemingly slowed down considerably, so much so to the point where far too much attention has been drawn to individual players’ social media activities.

On August 22, it was highlighted by the account NBA Alerts on “X” (formerly known as Twitter) that big man Jaren Jackson Jr. had unfollowed his Grizzlies co-star Ja Morant on the platform.

Grizzlies fans quell any fears of Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr. rift

Though the post in itself would certainly suggest there may be some sort of a rift between the two studs (something one can only assume was the intent), fans were quick to point out how unnecessary any possible pandemonium would be in response, as many users pointed out that Jackson follows just three accounts on the app.

Another elaborated on who he kept on his feed and was quick to note that one of the three accounts the big follows is, indeed, the Grizzlies.

One person shared a screenshot showing that Jackson still follows Morant on his personal Instagram account, thus attempting to quell any suspicions of discontent.

Jackson and Morant have been partners in crime for four seasons now and have quickly managed to establish themselves as one of the best duos in the game today.

From the former’s abilities to protect the paint and space the floor to the latter’s unmatched athleticism and astounding instincts, the pair are electrifying when on the floor together and have helped guide Memphis to two second-seeded finished in the Western Conference standings over their tenure together.

Grizzlies fans should not expect things to be changing anytime soon, regardless of what social media may wish you to believe.
