Basketball fans react when Sharpe tries to fight the Grizzlies

A game between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Los Angeles Lakers took a rather unexpected turn as the two teams headed to the locker room for halftime. Videos from Crypto.com Arena showed several Grizzlies players, primarily Dillon Brooks, gawking at Pro Football Hall of Fame tight end Shannon Sharpe.

This did not sit well with Sharpe, who was quite enthusiastic. Things started to get worse when Sharpe, Grizzlies big man Steven Adams, and Tee Morant had to part ways, prompting Sharpe to release a statement to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin where he said: “They didn’t want this smoke, Dave.” . .”

As Ja Morant’s father explained to ESPN’s Mark Jackson and Chris Haynes of Bleacher Reportthe incident generated no hard feelings, and the two really seemed to patch things up in the third quarter: neither Morant nor Sharpe were removed from the arena after the skirmish.

Of course, this kind of event is exactly what leads basketball fans to crack jokes, particularly about how no human being on the planet really wants to fight Steven Adams.

Unsurprisingly, there were some mentions of Sharpe’s co-host, Skip Bayless, and how he reacted to this.

There was even a video tweeted by the NBA of Brooks with a microphone. Unsurprisingly, it didn’t include anything between him and Sharpe, which upset some fans.

JJ Redick and Andre Iguodala’s attention was focused on one thing: Sharpe’s cardigan.

But ultimately, there were plenty of jokes about what ended up being the most surreal moment of the 2022-23 NBA season thus far.

And while the Grizzlies’ official Twitter account didn’t say anything explicitly, well, we don’t think this video being tweeted was a coincidence.
