Dillon Brooks, the Houston Rockets forward, is all set to face off against the legendary LeBron James in an upcoming NBA matchup with the Los Angeles Lakers. Brooks is raring to go and has vowed to “lock him up.”
History Between Brooks & LeBron
In the past, Brooks and James clashed on the court during a Lakers-Grizzlies NBA playoff series. Brooks didn’t hold back, calling James “old” and claiming that respect had to be earned. Tensions boiled over in Game 3, leading to Brooks’ ejection after an incident involving LeBron. The Lakers ultimately triumphed in the series, and the two NBA players didn’t exchange post-game handshakes.
Brooks Takes On the Media
Brooks, now with a new team in Houston, continues to make waves, though in a more restrained manner. He’s not shying away from facing James again and appears to be fed up with LeBron’s media presence. He commented that he felt LeBron controls the media. He’s all about blocking out the noise and focusing on his game.
Brooks’ Game Plan
Brooks is not just about words; he has a clear strategy to “lock up” LeBron. He plans to wear down James physically, applying pressure by going full-court, bumping him in the post, and relentlessly attacking when LeBron is guarding him.
In this eye-to-eye clash, Dillon Brooks aims to give LeBron James a run for his money, proving that he’s ready to back up his talk on the court.
