The Los Angeles Clippers are filled with talented players who aren’t known for being the most outspoken of individuals.
That’s why point guard Patrick Beverley tends to capture tons of headlines. The hard-nosed veteran has never been one to keep his feelings and opinions to himself.
His more recent exclamation, which took place on social media, was directed at former NFL star and current sports pundit Shannon Sharpe.
Beverley’s most recent caption-grabbing incident took place during a recent game between the Clippers and Portland Trail Blazers.
With the game on the line, Blazers star Damian Lillard missed two free throws.
Beverley took it upon himself to talk trash to Lillard while sitting on the Clippers bench due to injury. Multiple players on the Clippers bench could be seen hollering with laughter after Beverley’s display.
While he certainly knows how to get his teammates going while sitting on the bench, Beverley isn’t particularly known for great production while he’s on the court.
So far this season, the veteran guard is averaging just 7.9 points, 5.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game. With that in mind, he is considered one of the top defensive guards in the league.
Whatever Beverley said to Lillard, it certainly motivated the star guard.
In his next game out after losing to the Clippers, Lillard dropped 51 points in a 124-121 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.
