Dillon Brooks claims he’s a better player than Draymond Green after Grizzlies’ win over Warriors

If you thought the dispute between Draymond Green and Dillon Brooks would settle down after the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Golden State Warriors, then it’s your fault.

As it turned out, the Grizzlies pulled off their first win of the season over the Warriors in three runs, which proved to be just the right punch to the arm that was needed for one of the NBA’s most lopsided feuds in recent memory.

This current chapter began with Brooks being interviewed by ESPN and saying, among other things, “I don’t like Draymond at all..” Green responded in a very green manner by bumping into Brooks on his podcast, basically pointing at the scoreboard and saying that the Grizzlies will never be the dynasty they believe they can be if they rely on Brooks.

It all turned into a great ad for the Warriors-Grizzlies game on Thursday, and don’t you know that Green and Brooks were in it:

Fireworks erupted after the game, a lopsided 131-110 win for the Grizzlies despite their absence of Ja Morant. Brooks finished the game with 14 points on 6-of-15 shooting with six assists, and Green had 16 points on 5-of-9 shooting, 7 assists, 5 rebounds, 3 steals and 5 assists.

The loss continued a brutal 34–33 road season for the Warriors, who are now 7–26 behind the Chase Center.

Brooks began litigation after the game, calling Green’s podcast “cute”.

Later, in an interview with reporters, Brooks brushed aside Greene’s comments, stating a dubious statement.

Now, we’re far from pointing at one player and deeming them better (especially since irrational overconfidence is what fuels the vast majority of NBA players). But let’s take a look at some summaries.

Green is a four-time All-Star, four-time NBA Champion, one-time Defensive Player of the Year, seven-time All-Defensive Game, and two-time NBA All-Star in 11 seasons with the Warriors. Brooks … has been a regular starter for the Grizzlies for the past four years.

However, Brooks made a much stronger point, remarking that it’s great that Green hinted to his Grizzlies teammates that he didn’t like it when Green hit a teammate before the start of the season:

Meanwhile, Green chafed at the thought of the Warriors rivaling the Grizzlies, again noting that the Grizzlies don’t exactly have a resume to match the Warriors.

Who will win this round? People who love nonsensical NBA drama, obviously.
