WATCH: Tempers Flare On Court Between NFL Legend, NBA Team

  • Tempers flared just after the second-quarter buzzer in Friday night’s game between the Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Lakers when several members of the Grizzlies engaged in a shouting match with Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe, who was seated near the court.
  • Referees and security intervened to settle the confrontation as several Grizzlies players – including Dillon Brooks, Steven Adams, Ja Morant and Morant’s father, Tee Morant – gathered on the sideline opposite their bench at Arena to approach Sharpe.
  • Sharpe, who works as a commentator for Fox Sports, was escorted by security through the tunnel to a back hallway of the arena, where he stayed for halftime before returning to his seat for the third quarter.
