LaVar Ball fires back at Patrick Beverley for trashing Lonzo

LaVar Ball fires back at Patrick Beverley for trashing Lonzo

Patrick Beverley is a grinder.

After being ruled academically ineligible prior to his junior at Arkansas, the Los Angeles Clippers guard played a year in the Ukraine before entering the 2009 NBA Draft. Beverley was drafted 42nd overall by the Los Angeles Lakers, but traded to the Miami Heat in exchange for cash considerations less than 24 hours later. He spent the next three seasons trying to scratch and crawl his way onto Miamis active roster via Summer League stints and tours in both Greece and Russia.

Beverleys career changed forever when the Houston Rockets signed him to a multi-year deal in January 2013. Though originally slated to split time between the D-Leagues Rio Grande Valley Vipers and the Western Conference franchise, he quickly emerged as a rotational fixture for Houston, even garnering a double-double in his first career start during a playoff game against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Ever since, Beverley has been honing his reputation as one of basketballs best perimeter defenders.
