Dillon Brooks of the Memphis Grizzlies has been embroiled in a pretty heated beef with none other than Draymond Green. Overall, it is very clear that these two men do not like each other. In fact, Green recently made some scathing comments on his podcast. Following some less-than-favorable remarks from Brooks, Green subsequently lambasted the Canadian baller.
“If you ever wondered why the Memphis Grizzlies is not ready to compete for a championship, look no further than this idiot right here,” Green said. “They’re actually depending on this guy to help them win a championship. And he says his game is cool. Quite frankly, that just shows how little you know about basketball. … Your level of understanding the game of basketball is at a fan level.” On Thursday night, Brooks was given a chance to respond on the court. Although he scored two less points than Draymond, his team came through with a blowout win. Moreover, Brooks was a pest all game long and it left Green frustrated. This then led to some great comments from Dillon Brooks after the game.
Dillon Brooks Responds
"You should give the mic to Draymond," Brooks told the reporter. "Make him keep talking about me so I can play better." While some fans might be rolling their eyes at these words, you cannot deny how great this rivalry is. The Grizzlies and the Warriors hate each other a lot. Furthermore, they are the third and sixth seeds which means they would fight it out in the postseason. The last series between these two was very fun, and we would get to see it all over again.
If you are Draymond, you cannot help but feel a bit punked in this situation. He talked a whole lot of smack about Brooks and ultimately lost the day after. Overall, it is a pretty embarrassing way to go out. That said, the next game between these two will be even better. Let us know your thoughts on this rivalry, down below.
