    I have not seen much in terms of dirty play from Brooks to call him a dirty player out right, but that play was absolutely atrocious. This is a lot of energy defensively at the guard position they will miss.

      Absolutely no place for what Dillon Brooks in the game. Absolute disgrace,but let’s not act like Draymond Green isn’t always doing something dirty. One can argue the Dubs are a ring short because of Draymonds dirtiness!

      How is he a dirty player? Does he have a history or throwing shots

    What are the chances that Dray flat out murders Ja in game 3?
    Because as bad as losing GP is I think they would lose Dray for the series

      @Anthony & Tia Parker nope but could have

    • MaxTmoney

      May 4, 2022 at 5:17 pm

      @Anthony & Tia Parker in that case green is a dirty player

    • Anthony & Tia Parker

      May 4, 2022 at 5:29 pm

      @MaxTmoney but he didn’t. Point is he DID NOT. There is no “shoulda, coulda, woulda.” Bruh. Dray DID NOT injure their player. & Brooks DID. That’s all their is to it. Stop making excuses for that unathletic piece of trash Guard on your favorite team my guy. Both plays were Fucked up but let’s be real here. One player grabbed a jersey and tried to make sure the fouled player didn’t get injured, the other didn’t even go for the ball, swiped at the head, and didn’t even attempt to try and make sure that the player he fouled didn’t get injured. Two different scenarios. Again both Fucked up but still different. FOH with the deflections from Brooks and his negligence.

    • Anthony & Tia Parker

      @MaxTmoney Also, Green didn’t get anybody injured in this series or other series.

    This seems personal. They balled against each other in college. Brooks from Oregon clucks and Payton ii from Oregon State. Payton got the best of him in college.

      You’re confusing Dillion Brooks with Tyler Dorsey and Dylan Ennis. They didn’t even guard each other. Nice try.

    Warriors in 6 maybe 5

    Brooks should be suspended till GP2 heals ..what he did was with malice ! The incidents last night including not calling a loose ball fouls reflects poorly on the TEAM, COACHING AND OFFICIATING! They’re DIRTY ! It takes a person years to build a solid reputation…it only takes one incident to ruin one’s integrity. The media shouldn’t be ignoring these issues…especially since the NBA is drafting younger players who had to time to mentally mature and still play with a street mentality…it’s your duty as the media to keep a higher standard of play..how many of these young guys grew up with strong father figures like Gary Payton or Steph?

    Dang, I hate seeing players get hurt like that, especially as it seemed intentional. Warriors have to win this series now. Teach these young cats how the champs do it. Don’t be surprised if GP senior calls in a few favors for some off the court retaliation, ijs. But on the court, Klay gotta shoot MUCH better tho. C’mon Klay, we need you! I’d use more Pool party / Wigs, Steph and Draymond together.

    • Bruh Band

      yeah because as long as this series many warriors player will be injured this series that’s why i want this to be fast warriors in 5💚💚💚💚

    Dillon Brooks has already have a couple of these. The dude is dirty af and this is one of the worst plays I’ve ever seen. Huge windup and follow through directly to his head without even going for the ball. For god shake, the man didn’t even jump, he just swiped. I hope he gets kicked out for the whole series

  22. Elijah Brooks

    May 4, 2022 at 11:01 pm

    I have seen brooks play the past two years and he has comes off as arrogant and obnoxious. Now, he dirty too.

    Stephen A got flashbacks of Julius Randle and RJ Barrett when JJ said force him right cause he only drives left.

  24. Jose Caballero

    Brooks,suspended or not,should nor go to San Francisco for the next two games,Gary Payton father will be there and we all know how The Glove may react..

    It more so affects GP moving forward, had to work hard to get to where he is. Yes he’s the only one that can check JA but GS shot horrendously bad from 3 and only lost by 5. Memphis could easily be down 2-0
