Donovan Mitchell had an honest explanation for Dillon Brooks' low blow: 'I've been busting his [expletive] for years'

By Mike D. Sykes, II,


The Memphis Grizzlies, man. Drama is just following them all over the place so far this season. Well, to be honest, it’s following Dillon Brooks, in particular.

First, it was the near dust-up with Shannon Sharpe a few weeks ago. They got into a spat that felt like it could’ve spilled onto the court at any minute, which was pretty ridiculous.

Now, Brooks is in the middle of a beef with Donovan Mitchell. Mitchell has good reason to be mad, too — it was Brooks that started things this time.

He delivered a punch to Mitchell’s groin during the Grizzlies’ matchup with the Cavs. It was completely out of nowhere and for no reason. Brooks should almost certainly be suspended for this.

So why’d he do it? We don’t have a concrete answer, really. Donovan Mitchell had a pretty good one himself, though.

“Him and I have had our personal battles for years. Quite frankly, I’ve been busting his ass for years…The one game he does an alright job on me, he decides to do something like that. There’s no place for that in the game. You’ve got to protect yourself at the end of the day.”

WHEW that is spicy. “Quite frankly?” Nah, man. Mitchell didn’t hold anything back there. As the Grizzlies say, he wanted all the smoke.

Fans absolutely loved this.
