Markieff Morris Lakers
Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Don’t mess with my LeBron James. That’s what new Los Angeles Lakers forward Markieff Morris said to Memphis Grizzlies wing Dillon Brooks on Saturday night.

Brooks committed a clean, hard foul on James in the paint. Morris took exception and was called for a technical in the process.

Don’t as much as breathe on King James. That’s the message Morris is sending to his new Lakers teammates and those going up against them this season.

Is it a bad look? Possibly. However, Morris will likely get a couple brownie points from James for his actions.
