    I'm going to have to disagree, the Clippers uniforms look like a D-League or Summer League uniform.

    More miraculous than gross to be honest, I would lie if I wasn't hoping he'd have an MIP type of season.

    He took a discount with the promises of playoff contention and NBA family only to be shipped off to an NBA wasteland a year later.

    Loyalty's everything until it's Business.

    He had an opportunity here for 3 years as the starting PG. He struggled to score 10 points and average more than 3.5 assists per game. You would've been hard pressed to find a worse starting PG a couple seasons ago. Harden running the point and MDA's system masked a lot of Bev's weaknesses last year.

    Not a popular choice but I DGAF. Miss Bev?

    He couldn't pad his stats even if he tried. He did play his heart out though. It's unfortunate he seemed to always be injured during our most critical runs. I want him to succeed in LA but I think he'll struggle.

    I'll root for pat except when he's playing the rockets. What are you supposed to say if you are him? Of course he is gonna be an optimist and believe in himself and believe that everything happens for a reason and that he has a better opportunity now.

    What should he say "oh crap this sucks, I can't play by james anymore. My career is over. I'm not that good"?

    What offensive system will Doc run now that his assistant coach is in Houston? He's so used to having players that either create offense (McGrady, Pierce) or run the entire offense (Paul, Rondo) that it'll be interesting to see what he's going to do with limited options.

    If you're in this thread taking cheap shots at Pat Bev, then you need to STFU and get outt ahere.

    Dude was a consummate professional who put winning and sacrifice above team stats. You can't judge players like Bev by scoreboard watching. Scoreboards don't magnify very key hustle plays and offensive boards or steals down the stretch

    Pat is everything right with America.

    He grew up in a very violent and crime ridden area.
    He could have dropped out of school or given up... he didn't.

    In college he received a bad break. He could have quit basketball and been bitter for the rest of his life... he didn't.

    He couldn't get a job playing basketball in the USA. He could have given up, instead he went all the way around the world to Russia. He could of quit.... he didn't.

    He busted his butt, realized if he defended and learned how to hit open 3's, he could play in the NBA. He looked for shooting help and went from a horrible 3 point shooter to a good one in Russia....

    He came to the NBA and busted his ass everyday at practice and in games. He never rested on his laurels and no matter what happened he had his teammates backs, competed hard and kept an optimistic attitude.. he DESERVES all the success he has had. He is a warrior as a person and a really good human being.

    I think he has some limitations as a playmaker that were masked by Harden..... but if anyone can surprise, it is the guy that has already overcome bigger hurdles.

    I am ecstatic about the Chris Paul trade, but will always root for Pat. Like someone that knows him well told me; "That is a really good dude."

    I loved Bev's energy too, but I heard part of the reasons he was traded was that he wasn't happy with his contract anymore. He wants Harden money, for being as good defensively as Harden is offensively. It wasn't an issue where he was being actively shopped, but it was easier to part with him knowing that - if that makes sense.

    Well he's definitely going to be relying alot on Blake. Love the guy but he sure as heck wasn't an offensive mystro.

    Totally understandable Beverley wasn't happy with his contract, arguably on the cheapest contract in the league for a starter and when you look at how well he performed relative to his monetary value. I'm actually excited to see him lead a team and handling the ball more. However, I doubt with Teodosic coming over that he's going to be the starting PG which would be a damn shame for him..I would understand if he demands a trade to a team where he can start.

    @ch44 I know you are considered an insider, but that doesn't sound like Pat or taken out of context. He wants Harden money? If he said it it was probably just pointing out that he's busting his hump on defense while Harden is not and is just as important to the team, which he was on defense.

    @tycoonchip Yeah, though could be that Doc will trust him more to make plays and MDA, Harden or a combination probably did not give Beverley enough responsibility to lead and win games. That sole responsibility rested on Harden's shoulders and I can understand Bev wants to see what he can do as the main ball handler.

    Bruuh that's what Teodosic is for and he's the best at it.

    You're a Lin fan still salty. First off, Hardens been the real PG of the team for years. So "the worst starting pg" argument died where it started. Bev's role was to play defense & knock down 3's, and he did it fantastic. The fact is he's a better NBA basketball players than Jeremy Lin
