Dillon Brooks may not have seen or fully absorbed the peak Chappelle’s Show-Era “When Keepin’ It Real Goes WrongSketch. This week, memphis grizzlies Forward Dillon Brooks Tries To Be His Authentic, Obnoxious Self In One ESPN Profile It had quotes that attracted equally eccentric people Golden State Warriors Draymond Green forward.
This isn’t exactly breaking news, nor is it surprising that he would try to upset Green. Never one to back down from a fight in person or on the Internet, Green used his podcast platform to blast Brooks with the lethal precision of a trained verbal assassin. You can always count on Green to rub vinegar in the wounds of the Grizzlies team. Anyhow, he seems to be snapping out of it and Brooks opens the window. Green clearly took Brooks’ comments to heart and responded forcefully to every criticism Brooks leveled against him.
Here are the main attractions:
“This idiot said ‘I don’t know what Drummond does out there,'” Green said. … “He said, ‘I don’t like Golden State.’ I also, quite frankly, wouldn’t want a team that beats me all the time.”

He cut deep. But Memphis has been spouting its gum about dethroning the Golden State for two years. The Grizz played their best performance in the 2022 Western Conference Semifinals, but they couldn’t take advantage of it.
“‘I want nothing to do with them.’ Quite frankly, you were the little kid in high school watching us win the championship. You should be glad you even saw that. … You’re a fan.
Brooks was a freshman at Oregon during Golden State’s 2015 championship season, but Green calling a rival player a fan is hilarious. It’s also the opposite of what Brooks said after Golden State terminated him last May.
But let’s get on with the rest of Green’s objections.
Green said of Brooks, “If you’ve ever wondered why the Memphis Grizzlies aren’t ready to compete for a championship, look no further than this idiot.” “They’re really depending on this guy to help them win a championship, and he says ‘his game is good.’ Quite frankly, it shows how little you know about basketball.”
That’s where it gets really interesting.
Oh man, Green is about to put on his analyst hat now. maybe that’s alluding to Brooks being 450th worst effective field goal percentage in the league (at the time of this writing) without contributing in any other way as a 3-and-D wing this season. Brooks is still a better shooter than Green, but Brooks doesn’t provide much value during cold streaks.
“Your level of understanding of the game of basketball is at the fan level. And you’re running around talking about dynasty? The dynasty starts after you, not with you,” Green said.
“It’s just a fact. I know players like Dynasty. They are not Jokers. It doesn’t work when building a Dynasty… Take it from me – I really know! Jokers Build a Dynasty Don’t do it.
Insulting his basketball IQ and calling Brooks a clown is the most personal this war of words has ever been. The next time they meet, don’t be surprised if Brooks has a grudge against Greene.
“I’m trying to figure out why they like you in Memphis. Or do they like you in Memphis? That’s a better question,” Green said. “I’m not sure if your teammates like you. But I can tell you why they like me [in Golden State], When you contribute the way I contributed in four championships, they like you.”
Who has the higher approval rating?
Although Green thinks highly of himself. it’s clear. Although he is not wrong. I think he has a higher approval rating in the Bay Area right now in Grind City than Brooks. However, Brooks and Green are different sides of the same coin.
Every sleek title contender needs a jittery, annoying archetype player or starter when they hit one of those last crunches during a watershed contest or 82-game season. His job is also to throw opponents out of character by focusing on their antics rather than their plays. It’s the human equivalent of Internet stimulants. The more attention you provide to them, the more their presence increases.
That’s why Brooks seemed impressed with Keon himself, bragging that he aced real estate. donovan mitchellThe head of the right faux slip n’ drop, then intentionally rolled into Mitchell so that he could intentionally tap his hand against the Cavaliers guard’s groin in a regular season matchup last month.
Because of plays like this, Brooks has been a hate magnet for the Memphis Grizzlies. He has also been the serial line’s chief foul artist. All the bad energy of opposing teams gets trained on Green instead of Klay Thompson or Steph Curry, he is a human negativity shield.
And yet, all that said, while everyone sees Green’s run-ins with the Grizzlies as symptomatic of a rivalry, I see two bickering partners. Green and Brooks don’t, they hate each other. Memphis could be the perfect soft landing spot for Green if his Golden State reign ends this offseason. Additionally, Branden Clark’s torn Achilles leaves a vacancy in the Grizzlies lineup for a versatile defensive anchor whose contributions can’t be explained solely through box scores.
Most importantly, the Grizz desperately needs a veteran who has been through the playoff gauntlet before. Green checks all those boxes. Scoff if you want, but weirder things have happened.
