Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks is not a fan of Shannon Sharpe.

On Friday night, Brooks got into a war of words with the FS1 host sitting courtside at the Lakers-Grizzlies game. The beef escalated, and security had to be called in after several Grizzlies players rushed toward Sharpe.

After being escorted off the court during halftime, Sharpe gave ESPN an impromptu interview and ripped into Grizzlies players.

After the game ended, Brooks fired back at Sharpe and called him a “pedestrian” and a “blogger” for being allowed to return to his seats later in the game.

“A regular pedestrian like him? No. He shouldn’t have ever came back in the game. But it’s LA.”

LeBron James said he had Sharpe’s back after the incident.

“I ride with Shannon 365 days — 366 on a leap year — 24/7. So that’s my guy. I always got his back. And he’s got mine. He can talk with the best of them, for sure.”
