Social Media Buzz: NBA world reacts to Dillon Brooks’ dirty play vs. Donovan Mitchell

At this point, former Oregon Ducks forward Dillon Brooks has made a name for himself as one of the more controversial figures in the NBA. As one of the key players for the Memphis Grizzlies, it’s not uncommon for Brooks to be involved in some dust-ups throughout the season.

On Thursday night, Brooks might have been in one of the biggest scuffles of his career, getting into it with Cleveland Cavaliers’ star Donovan Mitchell, leading to both players being ejected from the game. The play that led to the scuffle on the court appeared to come after Brooks when to the ground and flailed his arm, catching Mitchell with a fist to the groin area.

By all means, it did not look like a clean play, to say the least.

As you would expect, with a villain in the NBA committing an act like this on the court, the Twitter world went wild. Here are some of the best reactions after the incident.
