Dillon Brooks’s name has been all over the media in the last few weeks, and not always for the best reasons. All of Brooks’ shenanigans could come back to bite. According to reports, it is possible that he will not return to the Memphis Grizzlies. Brooks is an unrestricted, free agent and his future at the Grizzlies remains uncertain. Many Grizzlies’ fans do not want him to return because of his antics, which cost them the series and led to an early exit.
LeBron James, and the Los Angeles Lakers, kept their heads down and worked hard to achieve the goal. Memphis Grizzlies have a long season ahead of them. Dillon Brooks was the one who received the most criticism for their early departure as he couldn’t back up any trash-talk. He referred to LeBron as “old” and claimed that he would knock the Lakers out of the playoffs. But nothing has aged well for him.
Zach Kleiman knows that the reason for the early elimination of the Memphis Grizzlies from the playoffs is not a secret. He probably also knows who to blame. Kleiman reflected on the season and said that “there were some self-created distractions in the series along with the journey.” Next season, we will take a new approach ).”
Kleiman’s comments clearly show the Grizzlies “different approach” next season. Dillon Brooks may not be part of the Grizzlies’ “different approach”, as they have learned to not make unnecessary noise.
Zach Kleiman declined to answer directly when asked about Brooks’ future with the Grizzlies. He replied, I’ll get to Dillon another time …” Dillon Brooks did not want his return discussed so early. He gave a safe response, by saying. “They could be good (chances of returning), but I’ll let my agent handle that.”
Dillon Brooks finally speaks out about his remarks against LeBron James
Dillon Brooks, who was fined by the league $25,000 for failing to attend post-game media interviews several times, finally spoke with the media. He said, “That’s what I am.” When asked about his comments on LeBron after Game 2, he replied: “That is who I am.” I’m a competitor. I’m a competitor. I don’t believe it made LeBron “geeked” up. It’s been a while since he’d played in the playoffs. He was ready for .”
The Grizzlies GM blamed Brooks’ antics on the loss. His future with the Grizzlies is now in doubt. He intends to get better this summer so it’s not unreasonable to think he will return to the Grizzlies as a more improved player. Brooks has to do more than talk if he wants that to happen.
