Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but behind the scenes there has been a bit of a back and forth between Tyrese Haliburton and Patrick Beverley.
And at first, this seems like two players who shouldn’t even be in the same conversation. I mean, Beverley is a perrenial journeyman while Haliburton is an ascending superstar. But we all know who Patrick Beverley is, a player who likes to talk enough to make headlines and never back it up.
Well the back and forth has been quite entertaining and on Sunday afternoon Haliburton had the last word. Here is the complete back and forth between the two players.
