The game between the Los Angeles Lakers and the Memphis Grizzlies got pretty heated on the sidelines. A fight broke out between NFL veteran and analyst Shannon Sharpe and the entire Grizzlies team at half-time. However, the momentum quickly shifted from that to a heated argument between Sharpe and Tee Morant, Ja Morant’s father. Now even though, the two ended their beef right after the game, longtime Lakers celebrity fan Snoop Dogg may have reignited an old beef between LeBron James and the Memphis Grizzlies. 

During last year’s campaign, LeBron James and Desmond Bane had gotten into it during a game between the two teams. Bane had just converted an and-one and felt confident enough to trash-talk ‘King James.’

The game ended with the Grizzlies taking home the win, 127-119, but it wasn’t without an effort from LeBron James as he was arguably the only one putting up a fight. James was the only starter who had scored in double-digits in that game against Memphis.

Now with another scuffle taking place during the Lakers-Grizzlies game recently, Snoop Dogg may have been adding fuel to the fire. Snoop Dogg went on to his official Instagram account to highlight the year-old scuffle between James and Desmond Bane.

Though the legendary rapper only captioned the video, “Wow,” fans had other opinions in mind. One fan commented, “Kids these days.”

Another fan commented, “LeBron get his feelings hurt? Kobe would’ve welcomed that trash talkin and talked sh*t right back and made them cry. Glad Bron got his dunk in, but he’s gotta stop being so sensitive.”

“LeBron is too mentally sensitive which is why I don’t think he would’ve been the dominant player he’s been today back in the 80’s & 90’s. They would’ve had him for lunch Regardless, they lost the game and everyone knows the best way to shut someone up is to WIN!!! Lol.”
