DeMar DeRozan appears to still have beef with Dillon Brooks following their altercation earlier this season.

While appearing on "The 25/10 Show" podcast, DeRozan discussed his on-court scuffle with Brooks, making it clear he isn't fond of the Houston Rockets forward.

"I'm not going to lie, I just don't like him," DeRozan said. "And for two, don't walk up behind me, that's rule number one. Don't walk up on no man behind him when his back's turned."

The scuffle between DeRozan and Brooks occurred during the Rockets' 127-117 win over the Chicago Bulls on March 21. DeRozan had just knocked Rockets guard Jalen Green to the ground when he was confronted by Brooks, leading to both of them being ejected from the game.

DeRozan, 35, is set to become a free agent this offseason but has expressed a desire to return to Chicago.
