Dillon Brooks says he's "ready to lock up" LeBron when they meet on Wednesday

Dillon Brooks isn't done poking the bear just yet. He did it with LeBron James during the first-round playoff matchup between the Grizzlies and the Lakers last season, calling him, among other things, "old." LeBron responded by averaging 22.2 points and 11.2 rebounds per game while shooting 61.1% from the field against Brooks' defense.

On Wednesday, LeBron and the Lakers face off against Brooks and his new team, the Houston Rockets, and Brooks has taken a jab at LeBron once again.

Houston (3-3) has been playing strong defense this season, and Brooks is a part of that.

The Lakers' offense has been unreliable, ranking 25th in the league, and the team is frustrated that LeBron isn't getting calls they believe he should be getting. In pursuit of this, the league sent a compilation of no-calls on their 38-year-old superstar, particularly against the Heat on Monday, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

What's notable about this is that the Lakers leaked this information. Teams often send video clips to the league (especially during the playoffs), but the leak from the Lakers is a sign that they are trying to get into the heads of the referees and plant a seed. It's not much different from a coach getting a technical foul for complaining about officiating during a playoff series.

LeBron also chimed in on the conversation after the league's report on the last two minutes of the game was discussed.
