Coming out party?
Had a solid game last game with 11pts, 4boards, 4ast, 2stls
Tonight already has 7pts,4boards, 4ast, 1 stl in the first half
I love how he got under Westbrook's skin and didn't hesitate to return the favour after getting the ball stolen from him.
Westbrook is a hell of a player but I get tired of him trying to be a tough guy.
Me 2 Pat Bev is tough, very very tough and has the heart of a lion.
The NBA has a ton of talented PG's in the league starting, but the back ups are becoming pretty good as well:
Beverly 9pts, 6boards, 5ast, 1stl, 1to in his first start of the playoffs.
He's played very well in the first half, not to mention frustrating Westbrook
Westbrook is so damn annoying. He celebrates made shots more than Nate Robinson. He thinks he's about 100% better than he is. He thinks he's tough. And every time they lose it's usually his fault.
It didn't cost them tonight, but I'm pretty sure it will at some point. If he was humble and actually recognized his strengths and weaknesses the Thunder would be a lot better.
Yeah 16, 12 and 6 is pretty good.
The Rockets are better win Beverly on the floor than Lin.
He's come a long ways after getting cut by the Heat back in 2010
Long, athletic players who went overseas, found success there and came back seem to be good bets.
Patrick's come a long way since HS. In HS he was nothing but a skinny, long-armed chucker who liked to get up and down the floor. I remember him being a huge scorer in HS. I'm talking like 35 ppg. He's become quite the defender though and has a much better all around game. He's not a pure point but he can stuff the stat sheet because of his activity.
Rockets got him locked up in a three year contract for $1.9 million . . . total. That is counting this year where he is making $281,000. Bargain!
I've been high on him, as a defender, for a few years now. After leaving school early, going overseas he's come a long way. I'm glad to see him making the most of his opportunity in the league.
Did any of your guys see his documentary of when he was in high school?
Yea, that documentary made me respect him a wholllleeeee lot more, very very good piece.
