Things got a little bit crazy during the LA Lakers' game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Friday night at Crypto.com Arena. Shannon Sharpe, who was in the stands, got into it with several Grizzlies players and Ja Morant's father, Tee Morant.
At the end of the first half, Dillon Brooks could be seen jawing with Sharpe. The NFL legend didn't appreciate what Brooks said and told him to come over. Steven Adams then approached Sharpe as coaches and officials restrained him.
Sharpe also started talking to Ja Morant, so his father, Tee, had to get involved. Security came in to separate all parties involved. Before the start of the second half, Mark Jackson and Mike Breen revealed on the ESPN broadcast that no one was thrown out of the game or arena.
Here's the video of the altercation:
As usual, fans went wild on social media, with the incident between Shannon Sharpe and the Memphis Grizzlies going viral.
