Shannon Sharpe Wanted All The Smoke From Memphis Grizzlies Players During Lakers Game, Ends Feud With Ja Morant's Father

​ ​ ​ ​

Tensions boiled over during halftime of a game between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Los Angeles Lakers last night. And FOX sports personality Shannon Sharpe was at the center of it. Details about what caused the heated argument inside…

Emotions ran high in Crypto.com Arena last night during halftime of a game between the Memphis Grizzlies and the Los Angeles Lakers.

At the end of the first half of Friday night's game, Hall of Fame football player Shannon Sharpe had a heated courtside conversation with Memphis Grizzlies players Ja Morant and Dillon Brooks, as well as Morant's father, Tee Morant.

Throughout the first half, the Fox Sports personality exchanged words with Dillon Brooks before yelling at Ja Morant on the final possession of the second quarter.

Cameras caught Ja Morant yelling “sit yo a** down” to FOX sports personality Shannon Sharpe. Peep the clip below:

Then, all hell broke loose. Watch the madness below:



After being separated, the “Undisputed” co-host spoke to ESPN about what went down.

“They didn’t want this smoke, Dave,” the former NFL tight end told ESPN’s Dave McMenamin. “They do all that talking and jockeying and I ain’t about that jockeying. It started with Dillon Brooks. I said he was too small to guard LeBron. He said, ‘F**k me.’ I said, ‘F**k you back.’ He started to come at me and I said, ‘You don’t want these problems.’ And then Ja came out of nowhere talking. He definitely didn’t ant these problems. Then the dad came and he obviously didn’t want no problems. But I wanted anything they had. Don’t let these fools fool you now.”

Sharpe and Tee Morant spoke with security in the arena tunnels before returning to their seats as the second half began. At the end of the third quarter, they hugged. Check it out below:

After the game, Dillon said Shannon should not have been allowed to return to his seat after arguing with players.

”A regular pedestrian like him? No. He should never have returned to the game, but this is Los Angeles," Dillon told the media.

Ja Morant and Grizzlies coach Taylor Jenkins refused to comment on the incident following the Lakers' 122-121 victory, breaking Memphis' 11-game winning streak.

What a night.
