“That bear is coming, that bear is LeBron James”: Kendrick Perkins warns Grizzlies Dillon Brook’s “too old” rant will only motivate King James

According to Kendrick Perkins, a former teammate of LeBron James, Dillon Brooks of the Memphis Grizzlies may have made a mistake by stating that he doesn’t respect James. Perkins warns that Brooks’ recent comments will only motivate the four-time MVP, who could dominate the series as a result.

Perkins stated, “He didn’t poke the bear, he poured honey on himself. That’s what Dillon Brooks did. He poured honey on himself. ‘Cause that bear’s coming. That bear’s LeBron James.” Perkins also emphasized that James has pride and is not one to be underestimated.

“LeBron James is from Akron, Ohio, OK? LeBron James is from the mud. LeBron James got pride, and he better believe he didn’t poke the bear, he poured honey on himself. The bear’s coming. Saturday, LeBron James is on his way,” Perkins added.

Perkins also mentioned that he has been observing James settle for jump shots in the previous games, and this could change in the upcoming match. “I have been watching LeBron in these past two games that has been settling for jumpshots, a total of 16 3-point shot attempts, and he only got to the line eight times in two games. That’s gonna change of Saturday. Dillon Brooks better be ready,” Perkins warned.

In Game 2, the Grizzlies emerged victorious with a score of 103-93, tying their first-round series with the Lakers. Despite matching up against Brooks the entire game, James still managed to end the match with 28 points, 12 rebounds, and three assists, showing that he is indeed a force to be reckoned with.

Dillon Brooks brushes off LeBron James’ comments, says he doesn’t respect anyone until they give him 40

Memphis Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks isn’t intimidated by LeBron James after their recent faceoff in the NBA playoffs. The Canadian forward, who has built a reputation as a tough defender and trash-talker, dismissed James’ comments during their game on Wednesday, saying that he didn’t care because James is “old.”

Brooks went on to reveal that he was expecting James to react in Game 4 or 5, but he “pokes bears” and doesn’t respect anyone until they give him 40 points. Despite James winning 10 of the 13 games they have played against each other, Brooks believes that the four-time MVP is past his prime and not at the same level as he was when he won championships in Cleveland and Miami.


However, Brooks acknowledged that James is a “legend” and praised his opponent’s game. He also mentioned that he had a conversation with James after their confrontation, where he let him know that he couldn’t take him one-on-one until that moment.

The Grizzlies’ first-round playoff series against the Lakers is tied at 1-1, and Brooks welcomes another run-in with James. The young Grizzlies have developed a reputation as one of the spikiest teams in the league, and Brooks is confident in his team’s ability to wear James down throughout a seven-game series.
