Los Angeles Lakers eliminated the second-placed Western Conference side, Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of their NBA Playoffs 2023 on Friday night and the Lakers legendary forward, LeBron James didn't hold back after the victory as he ripped into Memphis forward Dillon Brooks with his brutal tweet on Saturday.

LeBron James-led Lakers defeated Ja Morant's Grizzlies by 40 points in game six of their first-round playoffs at the Arena and will now face the winners between Golden State Warriors and Sacramento Kings in the Conference semifinals.

After winning their playoff series against the Grizzlies, the four-time NBA champion took to his official Twitter handle and posted a brutal tweet taking a sly dig at Brooks. Earlier, Brooks made many disrespectful remarks about the NBA's all-time leading scorer and 'King' James responded in a savage way. James wrote, "Unlike you little 🤬I'm a grown ass man.  Big shoes to fill 🤬, grown ass pants.  Prolly hustled with your pops, go ask your parents.  Its apparent you're staring at a legend.  Who, put a few little 🤬in the they place before.  Trying to eat without saying they grace before! 🤫👑"

After winning game 2, Brooks called LeBron "old" and said, "I don't care, he's old. You know what I mean? I was expecting him to do that game four, game five. He wanted to say something when I got my fourth foul, he should've been saying that earlier on. I poke bears, I don’t respect no one until they come and give me 40. I pride myself on what I do."

LeBron took to his Instagram handle and posted a series of pictures after the win, and wrote, " If you ever see me fighting in the forest with a Grizzly bear, HELP THE BEAR 👑 "

Eventually, the Lakers won the series 4-2 and defeated the Grizzlies by 40 points in their sixth game on Friday to advance to the Conference Semifinals.
