    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

    P. Beverly went to Marshall.
    White Sox - Southside
    Cubs - Northside
    Bulls/Blackhawks -Westside

    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.

    Mr. Wilbourne, mention the non-call foul on #30SC while shooting a 3ptr, trapped btwn 2 defenders & contact in the air?? Just say all the non-calls for both teams.

    Would you like to be, in Patrick Beverly position? The sacrificial lamb trying to contain the best player in the NBA. Kevin Durant. Agree or Disagree? Just curious.

    If Patrick Beverley, played against James Harden. Would James Harden get ejected from the game? Or just Patrick Beverley? I believe Patrick Beverley would be the only to get ejected from the game.

    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

    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
    LA Clippers 5 months ago +1

    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 5 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!!!

    All the Clippers had to do was win that Lakers game and we would be the 6th seed facing Portland today. Stupidity.
