After losing the Sun Blowout in Game 7 to the Dallas Mavericks, Patrick Beverly took Chris Paul from his trolling Twitter to ESPN for slander on all televisions.
Patrick Beverly has always been the most frustrating opponent for most players (and fans) in the NBA. He doesn’t give up, he goes under your skin and he always talks rubbish.
Throughout 2020, we’ve seen his trash-talking reach new heights when he clowns Dame Lillard for joking around with his team going to Cancun.

Cancun Jokes pushes Bev back and forth as he is sent home soon, his Cancun cloning ends quickly. Now, his latest nemesis seems to be none other than Chris Paul aka CP3.
Patrick Beverly has received a one-game suspension without pay for pushing Chris Paul in Game 6.
Beverly will miss the first game of the 2021-22 season in which he is available to play.

Paul and Phoenix Sun NBA gold is on the rise. They have improved from season to season and have been picked by many because it could win this whole year.
Hold the yale, let’s see who pulls and pulls the fake and moves under the coconut

The Dallas Mavericks had other plans and sent them home in a 30-plus point blowout game last week: the worst final rate in history. Social media CP3 and Patrick Beverly erupted with elite slander just before the start of the fourth quarter.
Why is he more deserving of what you deserve? https://t.co/Y0t0Sxbabu

The next day, Pat Beve was bright and early on ESPN with some extreme hatred over CP3. The scandal was so intense that there seemed to be no commercial break. To make matters worse, he appeared on the entire slate of ESPN’s shows and slandered CP3 throughout a full-day television slot.
Pat Beve is rolling out so many bunkers that First Tech won’t even go commercial they will just return all the sponsors.

There were so many crazy things Patrick Beverly said online that we could stay here all day. To avoid this, we will only reflect on some wildlife. One of them is the comparison of CP3 with a traffic cone.

Patrick Beverly even gave his opinion on guarding Chris Paul, claiming the night before the game that he could drink wine, go out and enjoy the city. However, if he has to play with Steve Curry the next night, he’s trying to get in bed early for his upcoming job.
“Do the NBA guys go to bed early the night before the Phoenix Suns game? Hell no.… I’m going to Steak 44. I have a nice little wine for me … Steff Curry? I’m going to bed at 8 o’clock.… Mom, me Don’t call, my daughter, don’t call me. “

Of course, the reaction to slandering Chris Paul on Patrick Beverly Live TV happened online, but it first started on television. Matt Burns first called Pat Bev during his own show and couldn’t believe the disrespect and people allowed it.
“There is a fine line between being critical and being disrespectful. And I think what Pat Beverly did to Chris Paul today was utterly disrespectful and out of line.

I can’t imagine anyone putting my biggest hater on national television in less than twelve hours of my fall https://t.co/28CWsiK8yo

Yesterday’s blowout gave us all so much unity. Defamation CP3. Booker’s slander for the clip is about twice as much in the 3 year open gym, laughing with Pat Bev (about 5 minutes) and now together slandering Pat Bev. And it’s only lunch time on the West Coast. Heartbreaking
