Dillon Brooks Refuses To Speak With Media, Twitter Reacts

Dillon Brooks may be wishing he could take back his words on LeBron James. Last week, the Grizzlies forward spoke to the media after a Memphis win with a ton of confidence. Brooks said he wouldn't respect James until he scored 40 on the Grizzlies. Also, Brooks called one of the best to ever play the game "old." Since those comments, the Lakers have dominated the Grizzlies in two straight games. On Monday night, The Lakers defeated the Grizzlies in overtime to secure a 3-1 series lead. After the game, Brooks didn't have time to speak with the media about the game.

When Brooks was asked to speak with the media, he gave them two words "I'm out." Before Game 4, Brooks told the media he felt that they were creating a villain profile. Something that he felt wasn't true at all. However, calling a player on the opposing team old and claiming you don't respect them may do that for you. Brooks has seemingly looked like a different player during the last two games with the Lakers. On Monday, Brooks finished with 11 points in over 40 minutes of play.

Dillon Brooks Visibly Frustrated

The Lakers have been rolling since the comments made by Brooks. Some may even say that James is turning back the clock. James' Game 4 performance carried the Lakers to their 3-1 series lead. James finished the game with 22 points and 20 rebounds. Including the game-tying bucket that sent the game to overtime. However, the Lakers did have a scary moment with Anthony Davis nursing his hip on the sidelines. But Davis was able to return and be a strong asset for the team.

Prior to the star of Game 4, reports also came out that the Grizzlies were looking t move on from Brooks. According to the report, the Grizzlies have already attempted to move on from Brooks but have been unsuccessful. The Grizzlies are full of young talent, including Brooks. However, a first-round loss to the Lakers will most certainly have the franchise making moves this off-season. Do you believe that Dillon Brooks' days are numbered in Memphis?
