Last week, Dillon Brooks of the Memphis Grizzlies was talking a lot about the Los Angeles Lakers and LeBron James.
On Saturday night, Brooks and his Grizzlies took on the Lakers again and LA was dominant.
As for Brooks, he was ejected in the third quarter after scoring 7 points.
Instead of talking more, he refused to speak to the press and that has a lot of people commenting on his game and his overall persona.
Shannon Sharpe was letting Brooks hear it on Monday morning.
“I’m baffled! A guy that has so much to say after every win, the moment they lose he has nothing to say,” Sharpe said on Undisputed.

Brooks was ejected from the game following a harsh hit to James at the start of the third quarter.
But even before that ejection, James and his crew were silencing the Grizzlies in a huge way.
The most shocking thing about Brooks wasn’t the off-night he had.
Instead, it was his refusal to talk after the game.
The next day, he stated that he has been labeled a villain by the press and NBA fans but that’s a misconception of who he is.
Sharpe wasn’t having any of that.
“You embrace it when you when. Now all of a sudden you lose, and now everybody trying to make you out to be the bad guy,” Sharpe said.
Sharpe and others have pointed out that Brooks is becoming better known for his statements off the court than his points on the court.
“We can’t talk about your game, because you don’t have game,” Sharpe stated.
Brooks might still have the last laugh with this series.
He and his Grizzlies could come back and even the series on Monday night.
They could still easily win the whole opening round.
If that happens, will Brooks become more talkative again?
