Patrick Beverley is like a hungry mountain wolf waiting patiently for the right moment to attack. The moment presented itself when the Dallas Mavericks blew out the Phoenix Suns in Game 7. PatBev’s prey? Chris Paul. And he went for the jugular. Damian Lillard joined the party and defended CP3.

PatBev attacks CP3

Players are fierce competitors on the court but, at best civil friends off it. You may not be close to a certain player but attacking him when he’s down is not the best way to show the competitive spirit. Since the Suns went down in Game 7, Patrick Beverley wasted no time attacking CP3, especially his defense.

"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, give him the PG13 slander. Give him the slander you give everybody."

Understandably, PatBev wanted the same abuse for CP3 that his former teammate in Los Angeles Clippers, Paul George, received when he underperformed in the playoffs. Ben Simmons also got called out for choking in the postseason. Paul has been receiving flak for disappearing in crucial Game 7 in what could be his best and probably last chance to win a championship. However, a rival and All-Star point guard came to Chris’ defense: Damian Lillard.

What CP do to you?

In a series of tweets, Dame fired back at Beverley, asking a question a lot of fans are dying to ask.

“What CP do to you?”

The Portland Trail Blazers guard then claimed the Minnesota Timberwolves guard acts like he’s some big shot player and talks like his word is the law.

“Bra on TV acting like his word law. Speaking on private convos and praying on mfs downfall. This weird behavior smh 🤷🏽‍♂️ … I ain’t got a horse in the race”

Lillard maintains high respect for his fellow NBA Top 75 player. He and Paul had battled numerous times on the court, but he did not let it get to him. PatBev is different. He is a dog, and he’s not playing the game to make friends.

Beverley saw his chance and did not let it slide. His criticism of CP3 is borderline personal now. He knew this might be his last chance to throw every hate he’s been keeping inside all those years that Paul put him in his place in the playoffs. Pat also questioned why CP3 deserves to win a ring more than others.

Paul is a sure Hall of Famer someday. He deserves to win a ring, but he is not helping himself after disappearing in the playoffs. CP3 now has blown 2-0 leads five times. Beverley is attacking Paul now, and he may have a point. It’s best to settle their beef on the court next season. The Wolves vs. Suns game next year is a must-watch.
