Veteran NBA fans often complain that there are fewer trash talkers in the modern game. But the modern version of the Memphis Grizzlies are on a one-team mission to change this. Their young roster is amazing at annoying their opponents and Brooks led the way. He’s one of the best trash talkers in the sport today as his opponents including Draymond Green can attest.
Brooks successfully got under the skin of big names like Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving. His critics will say that he doesn’t belong in the same category as these athletes. Nonetheless, every team should have a player like Brooks who will disrupt opponents. Brooks drives them crazy but sometimes he goes too far (via The Mirror). And the Grizzlies apparently think so too, as they recently announced Brooks would not be returning to the team for the 2023-24 season.
