    Patrick Beverley isn't from the southside, he is from the westside of Chicago he went to Marshall high school on Kedzie and Adams. I wish he was born earlier to play in the real nba in the 1980's he was interested in sports not gangs,he's saw it all. He's not feared on the court,i'm not talking fighting i'm talking about what he does that's defense playing basketball he's a westside ruffrider he play defense whether you like him of not. Derrick Rose is from the southside from Simeon high school, us westsider wanted Marshall to win and they lost. We love Derrick Rose like we love Patrick Beverley . Those two young men was fun to watch,we have Chicago love for them and Iman shumpert,Evan Turner and Anthony Davis

    People concluding that Beverly is smart from this don't know WTF they're talking about. This is what he does. As a fan of basketball, I love it. But provocation and annoyance are his bread and butter. The "smartness" came years ago when he figured out that this is his in in the NBA. Nothing new here. As for KD, we'll see if he can really control himself. If he can, he won this psychological game with Beverly. If he can't, Beverly won.

    Beverly is trash.. he doesn’t play basketball he plays trash and dirty because he has no real skill... he should have been thrown out the league when he destroyed Westbrook’s knee on a dirty play... one of these days karma gonna catch up to bev, either that or a two piece... funny how Beverly doesn’t try his dirty plays on player who will puts hand on him...

    This is actually a dumb idea. Kd doesn't have to take over in this series like he did last year. The warriors can just give the ball to curry and make him go off. Making him "slow down" Durant does nothing. He still going to drop 20 on him. Put bev on curry so he can shut him down. Advise from a warriors fan

  • LA Clippers

    I love Pat Beverley but not the expense of keeping him over the chance to get KD, Kawhi, or any other star. We're NOT going to win games from Pat's big mouth.

  • LA Clippers

    Pat is 6'1 and skinny. Someone like Steven Adams can injure him very easily. He needs to stop being a pest like Rob Pelinka and Rich Paul and just play basketball. Shut up and dribble!

  • LA Clippers
    LA Clippers 2 months ago +1

    Pat needs to just play. All his talk is just to camouflage that he lacks real talent. We need KD or Kawhi's talent more than we need Bev's scrappy attitude with mediocre talent to take us to the next level.

    • Gail Aldea

      But his team need him to eject, distract or injure key players of opposing team. Beverly value is far more bigger than their most talented player as he will take out the shooting capacity of his opponent star players, so clippers ultimately wins!!!

  • Tigerex966
    Tigerex966 2 months ago

    I said this before, the way to beat Golden state is to go after KD, Cousins, and Green and get them to add up those techs and get ejected, maybe a whole future game, and KD fell for it, luckily they had a big lead at the time.
    COusins wanted to but, but kept his cool because a max deal is lost if he goes crazy and they lose a game, Green will not get a max but millions will be lost if he has to sit out a game and they lose when contract talks come up.
    KD does not have to worry about anything he gets max win or lose championship or not if he gets a technical or ejection, he has no worries.
    So he is the one to focus on for other teams to get him ejected.

    Man, I don’t think Amir is wrong, IF he was really checking on his ill daughter. No occupation comes before your child. Being a father is your first occupation if anything. Do I feel like he should be fined? No, but at the same time, I know the NBA has it’s rules & they can’t really lift their foot off the rules for one person. I’d just run with the consequences as a man & move on.

    You do have to wonder about Rivers's strategy. Everyone says the Warriors got lucky in 2015 that Curry didn't have to face Beverly who was hurt (as well as Conley and, for most of the series, Kyrie) but Doc Rivers is deliberately stopping Curry from having to face Beverly in 2019 so that Beverly can, what?, hold KD to 23 points on 16 field goal attempts?
