Joshua Holloway addressed Ja Morant’s countersuit against him, after signing his national letter of intent to play D1 college basketball with Samford University.
Ja Morant filed a countersuit against Holloway on Wednesday (April 12) accusing the 18 year old of slander, battery, and assault after a fight over a pickup basketball game at Morant’s home in July.
Holloway previously filed a lawsuit against Morant in January, alleging Morant punched him in the face and pointed a gun at his hip, as he left Morant’s house.
The countersuit accuses Holloway of damaging Morant’s reputation and putting him at risk of losing millions of dollars from his NBA contract with the Memphis Grizzlies and potential endorsement deals.
Holloway said he’s trying to stay within himself and ignore the countersuit because he knows everybody has their opinions.
He also said he’s using the gym as his therapy to get his mind off of everything that’s happening.
When stuff comes out and stuff like that, I really try to ignore it.
Because I know everybody, again, has their opinion.
So, I just try to stay within myself.
…Just don’t think about too much, go to the gym when you feel like… when you start to think about it.
That’s what I do. That’s my therapy, I go to the gym, I work out, I just get my mind off of everything that’s happening right now.
Joshua Holloway played point guard for St. Georges Independent High School in Memphis, Tennessee, before he transferred to Oak Hill Academy in Virginia.
