Shannon Sharpe Was Ready To Fight Memphis Grizzlies Players

Written by Tony Ghaul

Things got heated between the Memphis Grizzlies players and Fox Sports host and former NFL great Shannon Sharpe during the Lakers-Grizzlies game in Los Angeles.

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.

At the end of the second half, Sharpe was seen going at it with several Grizzlies players before the half.

Below is the video of Shannon yelling at Grizzlies players and being separated by security.

Here is what Sharpe said to ESPN about the incident.

Cameras later showed Sharpe and Tee Morant shake hands and hug at the end of the third quarter. The two embraced again after the final buzzer.
