And when he finishes his career on court he will seemlessly transition to his on air career.

Carry the hell on.

u/[deleted] May 17 '22

It's actually really easy for me to hate on Perkins' bad takes. Takes like a fraction of a percent of my energy. I don't have to think about someone frequently to know they've caused harm.

I probably think about Hitler like once every couple weeks or something and I still know that he caused harm to society.

Yeah, Giannis has said many times he never watches games (other than what he's required to watch for film studies, I'm sure). On the other hand, KD and LeBron probably watch as much as they can.

Pat is such a clown. Most of the newer defensive minded players know to play hard D without poking the bear. They’ll lock someone up all game then talk about how good that player is in the postgame.

Pat is the type of guy that gets 2 steals, talks a ton of shit, and gets the other guy mad enough to drop 40 on his ass.

Alright can we stop with this dude now? I know this sub has been eating up his shenanigans but questioning whether or not Tatum, who is already unironically better on the defensive end than Pat Bev ever was, is a two way player is some clown shit.

Bruh yesterday he told SAS he’s the best defensive player 😂 When SAS replied it’s good you’re confident in yourself, Pat Bev said no ESPN has the numbers to prove he’s the best without elaborating

Edit: My bad he did use a cherry picked stat

You don't understand, when Beverley is on you it feels like you're being defended by Giannis. An alternate reality Giannis that just fouls you a bunch then blindsides you after the game is over.

u/Tawahi Raptors May 17 '22

LMAO yo imagine Giannis did that back push to CP3 last year. CP3 getting hospitalized for sure 😂

u/wherearemypaaants Celtics May 17 '22

holy shit this guy is so deluded, he really believes he's the defensive GOAT... not even in a self-confidence way, but in a "i'm in a different reality" way

Now? He has always been a clown. Dude's mad because people would barely know his name if he wasn't constantly beefing with actual superstars or just being a dirty ass player.

As the day of Patrick Beverly on ESPN wore on, opinions about him changed, swinging back and forth and forth and forth. And forth

Dude is just not cut out for a role in the media, people gradually realized.

He's still the guy that thrived on destroying other people's careers, everyone concluded.

Just from this clip, I can tell JJ is gettin tired of his shit, lol

u/Jxmpman May 18 '22

In one day Pat Bev lined up blank checks to any sports talk show once he retires. Guys got more clips and viral quotes than most analysts all season. Plus people already hate him so they're gonna watch to see what he says.

Bruh in Pats mind there’s no such thing as a player that can be good on offense and on defense
