Draymond Green, the Golden State Warriors forward, has reignited his ongoing feud with Dillon Brooks of the Memphis Grizzlies by taking an unprovoked shot at him on his recent podcast with Lauri Markkanen.
While concluding the show, Green stated that he doesn’t want to alienate anyone but emphasized that guests on his show should have a resume, unlike “some guys out here talking and getting interviews” like Dillon Brooks. He laughed with Markkanen at the comment, which added fuel to the already fiery feud between the two players.
The pair has been going back-and-forth in recent months, with Green responding to Brooks’ criticism of him on his podcast last month. Brooks would then have his revenge on the court before Green fired back, saying that a rivalry is only made when the other team, in this case, the Grizzlies, win championships as well. However, with the playoffs fast approaching, there haven’t been any recent headlines about Green and Brooks.
The Memphis Grizzlies will face the No. 8 seed in the first round of the playoffs, while the Golden State Warriors will face the Sacramento Kings. Should they both advance, we could be in store for a repeat of last year’s Western Conference semifinals, and it will be a can’t-miss affair.
Despite the tension between the two players, it’s all about winning games and advancing in the playoffs, so they’ll need to put their differences aside and focus on the task at hand. However, with Green’s latest comments, it remains to be seen if Brooks will respond and reignite their feud on or off the court.
The Never-Ending Feud: A Look into the Longstanding Beef between Dillon Brooks and Draymond Green
The feud between Golden State Warriors’ Draymond Green and Memphis Grizzlies’ Dillon Brooks continues to heat up, with the two players engaged in on-court altercations and trash-talking.
Green recently spoke about their ongoing feud, stating that it’s still basketball at the end of the day and that he doesn’t have any hard feelings towards Brooks. However, Green also pointed out that Brooks still has a long way to go in terms of matching up to him as a basketball player with all of his accolades and achievements.
Brooks had previously expressed his dislike for Green and the Golden State Warriors in an interview with ESPN’s Tim Keown, saying that he doesn’t like anything to do with them. Green responded by calling Brooks a fan, given that Brooks was in college while the Warriors were winning championships and building their NBA dynasty.
With the playoffs set to begin, it will be interesting to see if the Grizzlies and Warriors meet in a playoff series and if their feud will continue to play out on the court. The level of competition and entertainment will undoubtedly be high, and fans will be eagerly watching to see how it all unfolds.
