Shannon Sharpe and i moranthis father, teegot into a heated altercation at the Laker game Friday night…with both sides having to be broken up before they could finally make amends.
It all went down during the first half of the Lakers’ home game against the Memphis Grizzlies at the Crypto.com Arena… when the focus shifted from the field to the crowd.
Memphis guard Dillon Brooks and the FS1 commentator – who had seats on the court for the game – had been bouncing back and forth during the game…when Dillon’s teammates Stephen Adams and Morant entered the picture.
You can see Adams barking at Sharpe… while everyone else tries to restore some semblance of order. As chaos ensues, Shannon and Tee also got into a war of words.
In the video, Shannon appears to yell “I bet you don’t” at Tee multiple times as staffers, security, and umpires stand between them.
Shannon was then escorted out of the seating area into the tunnel.
After the commotion, Shannon spoke to ESPNs Dave McMenamin at halftime and said it all started after telling Brooks he couldn’t keep watch LeBron James.
“I said he was too small to guard LeBron. He said, ‘F*** me,'” Sharpe told Dave. “I said, ‘f*** you back.'”
Sharpe claims that Brooks then came after him…followed by Ja and his father, which led to him reacting the way he did.
“They didn’t want this smoke,” Shannon said. “They’re doing all that talking and jockeying, and I’m not doing that jockeying.”
“I wanted everything they had. Don’t let those fools fool you now.’
The good news – it looks like the cooler heads had the upper hand… as Shannon and Tee were spotted courting each other later in the evening.
