Brooks takes parting shot at Warriors: 'We're young, and they're getting old'
"We're young, and they're getting old," Brooks said after Golden State eliminated Memphis with a 110-96 win in Game 6, per ESPN's Kevin Arnovitz. "They know that we are going to come every single year."
The Grizzlies are coming off a remarkable 56-win regular season. With a budding young core led by Ja Morant, Jaren Jackson Jr., Desmond Bane, and Brooks - the oldest of the group at 26 - they figure to remain in the upper echelon of West teams.
Stephen Curry later shot back at the animated Grizzlies wing.
"He's said a lot of crazy things," the Warriors star told The Athletic's Sam Amick. "He called himself a dynasty already, so you've got to figure. On to the next round. Western Conference finals, we're back. Let's go!"
Curry added that he believes the Grizzlies have a bright future in the league.
"I have a lot of respect for every single guy on the team in terms of how they are built as a group, the individual talent," Curry said. "They have a lot of energy, a lot of potential in terms of winning at the highest level"
