Watch: Grizzlies’ PG Ja Morant’s father gets separated from Shannon Sharpe after heated altercation during game vs Lakers

The Memphis Grizzlies’ showdown with the Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night was marred by a heated exchange between Ja Morant’s dad, Tee Morant, and former NFL star-turned-media personality Shannon Sharpe.

Videos from the game showed Sharpe and Tee Morant exchanging words, with Steven Adams also getting involved in the altercation. The exact cause of the incident is not clear, but Sharpe has since revealed that it started with a comment he made about Dillon Brooks not being able to guard LeBron James.

According to Sharpe, Brooks responded with an NSFW message, which led to the Grizzlies taking offense. He stated that Ja Morant and his dad Tee Morant also got involved, but he was ready for anything they had to offer. Sharpe had to be escorted away from the wild scenes, and as he was exiting, he can be heard shouting “I bet you won’t, I bet you won’t.

The incident has yet to be addressed by Ja Morant or his dad Tee Morant, and it is likely that it will continue to be a topic of discussion in the media. It is not clear if any disciplinary action will be taken by the teams or the league in response to the altercation.

Shannon Sharpe is known for being a big fan of LeBron James and has been a vocal commentator on his games. This incident highlights the intensity of the rivalry between teams and fans, and also the emotions that can run high in professional sports. It serves as a reminder of the importance of maintaining professionalism and composure during games, regardless of the outcome or the opposing team’s performance.
