Dillon Brooks Reignites Rivalry With LeBron James Ahead Of Lakers Matchup: "I'm Ready To Lock Him Up"

Dillon Brooks is ready for another LeBron James matchup after their rivalry in the 2023 Playoffs.

Dillon Brooks and LeBron James had their fair share of moments in the 2023 Playoffs, 

with Brooks instigating James through on-court antics and media comments to get an edge in the series.  

Ahead of their first matchup of the 2023-24 season, Brooks has declared his intention of making it a hard night for LeBron.   

"I'm ready to lock him up. He's shooting the ball well and playing well. I'm just there to make him tired, make him get into that fourth quarter early."

After starting the season 0-3, the Rockets have gone on a run of three straight wins. 

Beating the Hornets isn't the highest bar, but beating the Kings in consecutive games and holding their electric offense to under 100 points in both games shows they can be a problem in the West.  

The Canadian swingman looks at home with the role of being the primary wing stopper.
