Flip and find out about the sports feud between Rockets’ Trevor Ariza and Salah Mejri, of the Dallas Mavericks…
Them’s fighting words!
Of course, Ariza then exchanged words with Mejri, picking up his second technical foul of the game. Ariza was ejected from the game.
From there, things only heated up, getting to a serious level when Trevor Ariza got dressed and decided wait out front of Salah Mejri’s locker room doorstep.
Here is what our source has revealed:
Ariza and two body guards walked down to the Dallas Mavericks locker room. Reports say he was eventually joined by teammates Patrick Beverley, James Harden and Eric Gordon. Nothing much went down, however, because Dallas police officers were already stationed outside the locker room as part of their regular detail. The officers monitored the situation and made sure it did not escalate into anything physical.
Mavericks guard Deron Williams came out of the Mavericks locker room to try and calm Ariza down at one point. An angry Trevor Ariza, eventually left without further incident.
Salah Mejri denies saying anything to Trevor about the Ariza’s family. Normally Ariza is said to be an even tempered man, unless someone really offends him or pisses him off.
It sounds like it could either be a misunderstanding or Salah Mejri did say something, but he’s too much of a coward to admit his wrongs.
What do you think? Did Salah Mejri say something offensive? Did Trevor Ariza twist things up and misunderstand Salah?
