Following their epic overtime win against the Minnesota Timberwolves in the Play-In clash, the Los Angeles Lakers are now preparing for their upcoming NBA Playoffs matchup against the Memphis Grizzlies.

LeBron James has already done his research on their opponents and is keeping an eye on Dillon Brooks, who was at the center of a highly-controversial incident involving Shannon Sharpe a few months ago at the Crypto.com Arena.

Despite being Public Enemy No. 1 for LA fans, LeBron is not taking what Brooks brings to the table for granted.

According to LeBron, Brooks is not someone to be disrespected as he can make shots.

Brooks himself has said that he is not afraid to go up against LeBron and the Lakers in the opening round, which has drawn the ire of Lakers fans.

However, James has decided to kill Brooks with kindness rather than let him get in his head, knowing that he has been through it all in his career.

The opening game between the Lakers and the Grizzlies will take place on Sunday, with Memphis hosting the contest.

Despite being the favorites, Ja Morant and the Grizzlies should not underestimate the Lakers, who are more than happy to take on the underdog role.

With LeBron's leadership and experience, the Lakers have a good chance of making a deep run in the playoffs.

Fans are eagerly awaiting this exciting matchup, and it is sure to be a highly entertaining series.
