I’m not a fan of Minnesota Timberwolves star, Pat Beverly. I don’t think anyone should be a Pat Beverly fan.
He’s crass, petty, and at times plain out childish, with his antics on the court that includes everything from rough play to mocking his competition during free throws.
But myself and apparently ESPN recognize that he moves the needle with the basketball viewing audience. He spurs social media engagement. And he demonstrated that again on Monday morning, trending #1 on Twitter with his remarks on the NBA playoffs, that included the favored Phoenix Suns getting booted last night by the Dallas Mavericks.
Let’s go to the Tweets.
Pat Bev just now on ESPN:
"Do i go to bed at 10 pm the night before playing Chris Paul? .. Hell no.
But if i'm playing Steph Curry tomorrow, i'm going to bed at 8 o'clock. Telling my girl not to call me!"

Pat Bev had to go on air, took a break out of his Cancun time to ensure niggas were held accountable for last night. LMAO. CP3 won't want him at his funeral.

Pat Bev on @GetUpESPN: "CP can’t guard anybody man. Everybody in the NBA know that. You know those cones in the summer that you dribble around? What does the cone do? Nothing. He’s a cone… It’s just that y’all don't want to accept that. Give him the Ben Simmons slander."

Nah Pat Bev really went on Get Up in a white collar shirt, black pants and his game shoes to slander Chris Paul 😭😭

Pat Bev: “Ain’t nobody worried about Chris Paul when you play the Phoenix Suns.”
Pat Bev also adds that Chris Paul “can’t guard anyone.”
This dude needs to be hired by ESPN the day he retires.

What do you think of the one fans call “Pat Bev”. Do you enjoy his analysis on ESPN TV? Should they bring him on when he’s through playing?
