Dillon Brooks, the Memphis Grizzlies player, has a reputation for being outspoken both on and off the court.

In his most recent remarks, Brooks commented on the need for veteran leadership in the Grizzlies team, which has been facing some challenges lately.

Some of the team's players have called for more experienced players to join the team and provide guidance.

However, Brooks did not seem enthusiastic about the idea of bringing in veteran players.

In fact, he questioned who the team could even sign, mentioning Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard as examples of players who are trying to make a comeback and may not be interested in mentoring younger players.

Brooks cited Udonis Haslem as an example of a true veteran player who is willing to take on a mentorship role.

While Brooks' comments do have some validity, they also highlight his tendency to speak his mind without necessarily considering the impact of his words.

It is possible that his comments could be seen as disrespectful to players like Carmelo Anthony and Dwight Howard, who have had long and successful careers in the NBA.

It is also worth noting that Memphis Grizzlies have been dealing with a number of issues this season, including injuries and suspensions.

Some of the team's players, including star point guard Ja Morant, have been involved in controversies.

The need for veteran leadership in the locker room is understandable, but it remains to be seen whether the team will take action to address this issue.
