Shannon Sharpe has expressed his belief that Ja Morant's recent statement following his second pistol-waving incident appears as if it was generated by ChatGPT, an artificial intelligence tool.

Sharpe predicts that the NBA will respond by imposing severe penalties on the Memphis Grizzlies star. In the statement released on Tuesday night, Morant, aged 23, took responsibility for his actions and expressed his commitment to personal growth but did not offer a direct apology.

During a passionate discussion on the show Undisputed the following morning, Sharpe, speaking to his co-host Skip Bayless, questioned whether he had heard of ChatGPT, explaining that it is an AI program capable of generating various types of content.

Sharpe emphasized the importance of sincerity and personal expression in an apology, suggesting that it should reflect the individual's authentic voice and not appear disingenuous, as if it were composed by a public relations team.

Sharpe expressed astonishment at Morant's statement, stating that it deviated from the way the basketball player typically communicates.

He went on to express his concern that the NBA would take strong disciplinary action against Morant, implying that the punishment may exceed the range of 16-24 games, indicating that the player had not learned from his previous incident.

Morant's statement acknowledged the disappointment he had caused among his supporters and recognized the need for self-improvement.

However, the NBA Commissioner, Adam Silver, who voiced his disappointment on Tuesday night, was shocked by the incident, which occurred only two months after Morant had filmed himself waving a pistol in a Denver strip club.

Silver expressed his intention to investigate the matter further, expressing concern about the severity of the situation.

Sharpe highlighted the genuine disappointment expressed by Commissioner Silver, noting that he had recently met with Morant to discuss the consequences of his actions and the harm they could cause to himself and the NBA brand.

Sharpe emphasized that the commissioner wanted Morant to understand the potential consequences of his behavior, including the possibility of harm to others or himself.
