In a new teaser clip, Cam chimes in on the generational divide between Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant and NBA Hall-of-Famer Charles Barkley.
“Charles Barkley says that Ja Morant doesn’t make his team better and Ja Morant tweets out, ‘Get your kneepads.’ Wild n-gga right there, boy,” the former high school standout hooper said.
“Me, as a older Cam, I’m gonna say that was out of line what Ja Morant said, but 23-year-old or 24-year-old Cam would’ve been like, ‘Yeah, fuck Charles Barkley.’ Y’all n-ggas sit up there all day and talk shit about young n-ggas saying they ain’t doing this and doing that.
“Them n-ggas got an opinion too. A smartphone or an iPhone is just like an asshole right now — everybody’s got one.”

The Ja Morant-Barkley feud was seemingly sparked last month when the TNT studio analyst criticized the superstar Grizzlies point guard’s play following the team’s 102-113 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans on November 15.
“The next evolution for Ja is [that] he gotta learn how to make the players around him better,” said Barkley on Inside the NBA. “When you’re a great player, you can get your shots any time you want to. But to take that next step.
“I don’t think he’s added that to his game yet. Sometimes when you make a play, you gotta be thinking to yourself, ‘I can go around this guy. But I gotta get this guy going. I gotta get this guy going.'”
Morant responded to Barkley’s comments by telling him to grab his kneepads. The Grizzlies guard is still posting a stellar stat line while leading the team with about 28 points per game while the team boasts a record of 12-9, which is good for fourth place in the current Western Conference standings.
It Is What It Is premieres later in December and other clips find Cam’ron lending his candid commentary to other NBA topics such as his hate for Ben Simmons and even the NFL where he doesn’t believe Aaron Rodgers should be mentioned in the same sentence as Tom Brady.
