“Sometimes he’s just talking to himself” Mavs’ Tim Hardaway Jr. hilariously weighs in on Dillon Brooks’ bizarre trash-talking technique

Trash-talking has been a part of NBA culture for decades, and some players have made a name for themselves with their verbal jabs. Tim Hardaway Jr. recently gave his thoughts on who he thinks is the NBA’s top trash talker.

In a recent Outta Pocket podcast, the Dallas Mavericks swingman named Dillon Brooks as the nastiest trash-talker in the league.

What Makes Dillon Brooks the Nastiest Trash Talker in the NBA?

Brooks stands out from the rest is in his unique technique of trash-talking. Hardaway Jr. hilariously shared that sometimes, “He’s everybody, man. Sometimes he doesn’t even talk to you; he’s just talking to himself,”

Hardaway Jr. also mentioned Draymond Green in the discussion, someone he’s known since college. According to him, Green was more in control of himself back then, and coaches wouldn’t tolerate trash-talking in college.

Brooks’ trash-talking technique has become an integral part of his game and helped him achieve relative success despite being the 45th pick in the 2017 NBA Draft. While some second-rounders failed to make it in the NBA, Brooks’ tough mentality kept him in the game. The Memphis Grizzlies forward loves mind games, and his trash-talking has earned him a reputation.

Although Ja Morant is the Grizzlies’ most popular player, Brooks is at the center of the team’s ruckus. He has become a core player for the team and played a significant role in their success. Brooks will become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, and there’s no word on whether the Grizzlies will offer him an extension. Still, it would be a surprise not to see Brooks in the Grizzlies jersey for the next few years.

In the NBA, trash-talking has become a psychological game, and players have to use every trick they have to get into their opponent’s head. Some are masters of it, and Dillon Brooks is one of them. He may be talking to himself sometimes, but it’s effective in getting his opponents off their game. If the Grizzlies manage to win it all this season, Brooks will finally get the respect he deserves, and fans and analysts will start putting respect on his name.
