Patrick Beverley must have been the most frustrating Milwaukee Bucks player after the Indiana Pacers delivered the final blow and handed them an early first-round exit in the Eastern Conference playoffs. After the Game 6 loss, Pat Beverley spoke to reporters after the game, causing a scene that has now gone viral on social media. 

Patrick Beverley, while speaking to reporters in the locker room, denied ESPN’s Malinda Adams the chance to interview him because she hadn’t subscribed to his podcast. He went as far as requesting that they move away from the circle of other reporters present in the locker room. 

You subscribed to my Pod?… You can’t interview me then. No disrespect…Get that mic out of my face, please?… Can you move that mic please or just get out of the circle for me please ma’am?
Patrick Beverley’s conversation according to Alex Golden

While it’s not clear if it was the emotions surrounding the early playoffs exit for the Milwaukee Bucks or just about his podcast, Pat Bev has created an aura of notoriety among basketball followers. Before the altercation with the reporter, he was involved in a court controversy where he threw a ball at a fan. 

Furthermore, there’s no questioning his passion for the game, as he brings a different kind of hustle to any team he plays for. Thus, it’s only normal for the veteran point guard known for his defensive acumen to act defensive when it comes to the podcast he also holds dear. 

Patrick Beverley’s shot at Tyrese Haliburton backfires

Pat Beverley made a controversial statement directed at Indiana Pacers Tyrese Haliburton after they both met in Game 4 of their playoff series, where he questioned the importance of Haliburton’s assist numbers. 

Furthermore, he dismissed the Pacers’ point guard when he said anyone could rack up assists and ended up having a great game himself, where he recorded 13 points, 12 assists, and 4 rebounds. Beverley’s gameplay was vital to the Milwaukee Bucks’ victory and forcing Game 6. 

However, Tyrese Haliburton in the course of the five games during the series averaged 15.8 points, 9.2 assists, and 5.8 rebounds. And with the Indiana Pacers eliminating the Milwaukee Bucks, it appears Haliburton had the last laugh.
