Shannon Sharpe Responds To Dillon Brooks’ Latest Comments
Shannon Sharpe has never been one to keep his opinions close to the chest. Shapre’s firey personality has always been of a media personality that wears his heart on his sleeve. One topic that is always going to incite a strong opinion from Sharpe would be LeBron James. Sharpe has long been a supporter of the Los Angeles Lakers star. Including being involved in a dust-up earlier this season with the team, the Lakers are currently playing in the playoffs. The Memphis Grizzlies have been out to prove their successful 2022-23 season isn’t just a one-hit-wonder.
The Grizzlies have a roster full of young talent. However, sometimes that young talent may tend to go overboard. After the team’s Game 2 victory over the Lakers, forward Dillon Brooks had some things to say about James and the Lakers. Brooks didn’t hold back his feelings on the opponent, calling James old. Also, Brooks said he wouldn’t respect James until he dropped 40. James didn’t drop 40, but the Lakers cruised to an easy Game 3 victory over the Grizzlies. Which included seeing Brooks get ejected for hitting James in a private area. After the game, Brooks told the media that he was being portrayed incorrectly by his recent actions. This is where Sharpe has drawn the line.
