Danny Green belittles Patrick Beverley’s defense, PatBev burns him in his response

Danny Green joined Damian Lillard and Matt Barnes in defending Chris Paul but calling Patrick Beverley out for his defense is a stretch. PatBev burned him in his response on Twitter.

Danny Green hopped in on the PatBev hate train, calling him out for his defense. The Minnesota Timberwolves guard burned him with proof of his elite defense.

If you're going for Patrick Beverley's head, you better not miss because he would come back and haunt you for it. Danny Green hopped in on the PatBev hate train, calling him out for his defense. The Minnesota Timberwolves guard burned him with proof of his elite defense.

You're not stopping Luka either

Beverley started the fire when he lambasted Chris Paul and his defense publicly. After that, many NBA players came to defend CP3. Damian Lillard questioned what Paul did to Patrick to deserve such hate. Matt Barnes chimed in and said PatBev isn't the man to be criticizing a future Hall of Famer. And now, Danny Green joined in the conversation and called out Patrick for his defense.

"People target you too, Pat Bev. You ain't playing no f***ing defense out there. You ain't stopping Luka. It's time and time again I see Luka call you a** "little man" and "he's too f***ing small" and go right at you every chance he got. When you play Luka you're a cone, too."

Green gave him the PatBev special. Safe to say, many NBA defenders become cone when guarding Luka Doncic with his heft, pace, skills, and shooting. Danny then added more context why the defensive guard should stop attacking CP3.

"Calling somebody a cone is disrespectful, bruh. I don't care. Target and cone are two different words, bro. He said he can't guard. Chris Paul is a ... nine-time member on the All-NBA Defensive Team. Yeah they targeted him, but s**t there's been times when Pat Bev's been targeted too, are you kidding me? Pat Bev, you're not stopping Luka either. There's not many people on the planet that are stopping Luka."

You can call PatBev dirty with his hustle plays or hardnosed defense that is borderline physical assault, but he plays defense. And the defensive specialist quickly reminded Danny Green of his reputation with hard stats.

PatBev responds to Danny Green

It did not take long for the 10-year veteran to answer the Philadelphia 76ers forward's allegations. Instead, Beverley posted stats on his Twitter showing he is the league's best defender when nearest to the offensive player. In fact, Giannis Antetokounmpo is only second behind PatBev in this category.

Defense is Patrick's calling card. Danny Green is correct that Beverley had been targeted, too but calling him out for his defense is wrong in the same way that the Wolves guard disrespected CP3 by calling him a cone. Paul played poorly towards the end of the Mavs-Suns series and should be called out for it. Beverley's disrespect for a future Hall of Famer is unwarranted.

If we're sticking to facts, Chris Paul had seen better days as a defender but not now at this stage of his career. PatBev is an elite defender, but he's also been targeted in the past. This whole NBA vs. Patrick Beverley is that nice distraction we never knew we needed. Something tells us this won't be the last we're hearing from PatBev and other players.
