In yesterday’s match-up between the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies, things turned ugly after former NFL star Shannon Sharpe went off against the Grizzlies team. Right after the half-court buzzer, Ja Morant‘s father Tee Morant approached Sharpe. The Grizzlies and the Lakers staff had to separate the two after the altercation. The NFL Hall of Famer told the media, it started with the Grizzlies guard, Dillion Brooks.

Things settled after both Sharpe and Tee Morant hugged it out in the third quarter. However, Sharpe’s controversial statement on ‘Undisputed’ a year ago caught the attention of the NBA world. After the statement, Sharpe is now being called out for hypocrisy on Twitter
