By now everybody knows that the Memphis Grizzlies dumped Dillion Brooks Tuesday to no one’s surprise. After trashing LeBron James and the Lakers, Brooks couldn’t back up his talk.

Many feel like his trash-talking of James especially fueled him and his team to bury the Grizz in this series, which they lost 4-2.

So now that Brooks is gone and is a free agent many are questioning if the NBA star will even be picked up by another team.

Shaq doesn’t seem to think so. He believes that Brooks is done in the NBA for not only his trash talk but his bad play.

“He didn’t play well enough to be acting like that. Now he’s going to be out the league, or he needs to check himself before he wrecks himself,” Shaq said. “Who’s gonna sign him?

“He’s not athletic, he ain’t jumping out the gym and his jumper ain’t like that,” he said.

It’s one thing to trash-talk one of the greatest NBA players of all time but it’s another when you can’t back up your words or don’t have the courage to face the music when you fail.

A lot of people were glad to see Brooks go after LeBron, but the King proved why he is still King of the NBA and why Brooks is still a peasant.
