The Los Angeles Clippers have everybod’y attention right now after an incredible meltdown that saw them blow a 3-1 lead against the Denver Nuggets, playing poor basketball in the second half of Game 7, the most important game of the series.
A lot of the criticism was aimed at Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, the biggest stars on the team, but there is also one guy that talked a lot before and during the season about his team, showing impressive confidence ahead of the 2019/20 NBA season.
Patrick Beverley was the happiest man alive when he found out the Clippers have gotten Leonard and George, going to tell everybody this year’s title belonged to the Clippers.
First, he went to knock on James’ door while they both were in a hotel in Las Vegas.
“It is pretty much over for you guys now,” he told LeBron last summer.
Moreover, when the season started, he raised the bar and made a bold claim against one of the most dominant players the league has seen in recent years, Stephen Curry. During a win against the Warriors in October 2019, Beverley was very confident about his team’s chances this year and the next five.
Last week, too, Clippers guard Patrick Beverley was captured on video taunting the crowd at the Chase Center, the new $1.4 billion arena the Warriors have opened in San Francisco, for leaving the game early during L.A.’s blowout win.
“Hey, hey, hey, hey,” Beverley shouted. “Where you all going? Where you all going?”
And Beverley hounded Curry throughout the game. With 1:28 to play in the second quarter, Beverley forced Curry into a turnover, turned and jawed at the Golden State bench. Beverley then squared off with Curry at the other end of the floor and began talking trash.
“You had the last five years,” Beverley told Curry, according to a source. “The next five years are mine.”
