Shannon Sharpe has the gift of gab, his hall-of-fame career for the Denver Broncos has only been matched by his superstar sports talk prowess.

While sitting courtside at the Los Angeles Lakers game on Friday, he got into it with the entire Memphis Grizzlies. The streaking Memphis team took a break from basketball to bark at the former tight end. It all started when Ja Morant and Dillion Brooks started barking back at Sharpe who apparently was telling the Grizz they’re too small to guard LeBron James.

Here’s ESPN’s video of the incident which includes Steven Adams and Ja’s father Tee Morant.

Sharpe told ESPN’s McMenamin after the skirmish that Memphis didn’t want his problems.

Sharpe was allowed back into the game and his seats after briefly being escorted out of the contest.

The Nuggets won on Friday to stay atop the west with the Grizzlies trailing just behind.
