Westbrook disrespects Beverly: "He don’t guard nobody, man. He just running around, doing nothing."

James-Harden-Russell-Westbrook-Patrick-Beverly

NBA veterans, mostly 90s veterans, constantly complain players today are too friendly. They miss a competitive edge in the modern NBA. Well, Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverly keep reminding them not all is lost.

Westbrook and Beverly have a long history of not liking each other. Back in 2013, Westbrook tore his meniscus after Beverly lunged for the ball and hit his knee. To make things worse, Westbrook was calling for a time out. That injury sidelined Westbrook for the remainder of the playoffs and most of next season, has he had to have three surgeries on that knee. The annual knee cleanups he has in recent years - that same injury.

Ever since that day, every time the two play against each other, there is drama on the court. From chirping at each other to Beverly lunging at Westbrook's legs again, this is a feud that will last as long as both are in the NBA. Last night we got the latest episode as the Rockets played the Clippers. After the game, Westbrook shared his view on Beverly's defense.

This isn't the first time Westbrook took issue with Beverly's All-Defense reputation, nor it is the first time he has gotten it wrong. Let's look at the facts. When defended by Beverly, James Harden was 0-of-6 with four turnovers - where I'm from that's a lockdown.

Even more so, it is quite funny Westbrook is the one commenting on anyone's stats and efficiency. Just ask Steven Adams how it feels to be rebounding after free throws again.
