Clippers’ Patrick Beverley says he dislikes everybody who isn’t on his team
Throughout the course of his NBA career, Los Angeles Clippers guard Patrick Beverley has earned a reputation as a very competitive player. The veteran isn’t afraid to go up against anyone, or any team, and he’s not someone who lacks confidence.
Beverley usually gets involved in an on-court fracas, and he doesn’t like to back down. According to him, that’s part of his in-game mentality. When he steps onto the court, anyone who is not a member of the Clippers is an enemy.
“Everybody. If you’re not on my team, I really don’t like you. I’m not trying to be an a-hole, arrogant guy. It’s just my demeanor. I respect you, but I really don’t like a lot of players for some reason.”
“If you’re not on my team, you’ll hate it. But if you are on my team, you’ll love it because I’m the guy that’s going to run through walls. I’m the guy is going to look up, down 30, and don’t think the game is over with”
Patrick Beverley has been jawing a lot lately, talking trash against the Los Angeles Lakers and the Oklahoma City Thunder. But that’s just an attempt to psyche himself up, especially since the playoffs are a few weeks away.
Pat is sending a message to the rest of the league that he and the Clippers are ready for the postseason, and whether opposing teams like his style or not, he has no plans of changing it, especially if its working for his team.
