Ex-football player clashes with Memphis players while watching NBA
Shannon Sharp (55), a former football player and broadcast commentator, was caught up in a commotion while watching an NBA game.
According to local media such as ‘ESPN’, Sharp collided with the Memphis players while watching the match between the Memphis Grizzlies and the LA Lakers held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, California on the 21st (Korean time).
According to the video reported by the local media, it was quite a commotion that the bodyguards had to stop. After the buzzer sounded at the end of the second quarter, Memphis players including Stephen Adams, and Ja Morant’s father, Tee Morant, got into an argument with Sharp.
In a later interview with ESPN, Sharp said that the fight started after he told Memphis player Dylan Brooks that he was “too small to stop LeBron,” and then exchanged swear words. He said that the Memphis squad did not want the fight to escalate and neither did he.
Sharp, who left the court under the guidance of a bodyguard, returned to his original position after halftime. He even appeared to reconcile with Tim Morant after the third quarter ended.
Morant told ‘TNT’ that there was nothing wrong with his relationship with Sharp. “It was just two guys from the South talking trash and cheering for their team,” he said. 메이저놀이터
On the other hand, the Lakers won a dramatic 122-121 match that day. The Lakers, who had been trailed by 13 points in the third quarter, reversed the score to 122-120 with Dennis Schroeder scoring a layup shot followed by a steal with 7.6 seconds left, as well as an additional free throw due to an opponent’s foul.
Memphis missed a chance to tie the game with Morant’s floating shot missing with 2 seconds left in the game, and Brandon Clarke missing 1 of 2 free throws from an opponent’s loose ball foul.
Russell Westbrook led the team with 29 points, LeBron with 23 points and nine rebounds, and Schroeder with 19 points, eight rebounds and eight assists.
In Memphis, all starters scored double digits, with Morant scoring 22 points, Clarke scoring 20 points and 10 rebounds, and Adams scoring 16 points and 17 rebounds, but unfortunately missed the victory.
