After the Lakers eliminated the Grizzlies, Austin Reaves felt happy. Austin Reaves will remember the Los Angeles Lakers' first-round rout of the Memphis Grizzlies in 2023.
Reaves said it felt wonderful when the Lakers silenced the Grizzlies in the playoffs. Memphis left in six games.
“All of Memphis talks s**t. Reaves told the Full Send Podcast that beating them in the playoffs felt fantastic.
Austin Reaves' brutal take is unavoidable. The Grizzlies talk a lot for a team that hasn't played yet.
Thus, many players and teams dislike them. It also gave other fanbases more reason to despise them.
Since Dillon Brooks is gone, the Grizzlies may change in 2023-24.
As every NBA fan knows, Brooks poked LeBron James in the playoffs, motivating the King to win.
If the Grizzlies keep trash-talking, expect their opponents to be twice as hungry. Austin Reaves and the Lakers should feel that way when they meet again.
