Memphis Grizzlies forward Dillon Brooks thought it was a good idea to talk trash to one of the greatest basketball players of all-time, and it ended up backfiring horribly for him.
Early on during Tuesday night’s Grizzlies-Lakers game, Brooks flexed on LeBron after overpowering the Lakers superstar under the basket.
Unfortunately for Brooks, LeBron ended up hitting a clutch fadeaway shot over him with about a minute left to go in the game.

While celebrating the shot LeBron disrespectfully mocked Brooks for being too small to guard him.
