The Indiana Pacers eliminated the Bucks by winning Game 6 on Thursday night. They won the series 4-2 and will be facing the New York Knicks in the second round. In doing so, the Pacers took down two players that Indiana fans hate, Bobby Portis and Patrick Beverley.

While Portis was ejected in Game 4 after getting into it with Andrew Nembhard, he was not the issue in Game 6. After this game, it was Beverley who was the clown. As the game was winding down, he decided to throw a basketball multiple times at Pacers fans behind the bench.

The worst part about that is what set him off. According to Shams Charania, it was a fan saying "One, two, three, Cancun!" as the Bucks were breaking the huddle toward the end of the game. If that's what set him off, he's softer than anyone though.

This issue is unacceptable. He will be fined and likely suspended. That behavior alone is enough to get all NBA fans to hate him. What he did after he got back to the locker room and when he was talking to the media just carved it into stone that he's public enemy number one.

Patrick Beverley disrespects reporter after loss to Pacers

While speaking to the media following the loss, Beverley was asked a normal question by an ESPN producer. Instead of answering the question like a normal person, he proceeded to tell her that since he doesn't subscribe to his podcast, she can't interview him.

How much of an absolute clown do you have to be to do something like this? This guy thinks the world revolves around him and that he's somehow above everyone. He's a complete joke. If he didn't lose a bunch of fans before the ball-throwing incident, he definitely has now.

Perhaps he's acting like this because he knows his career is over. He's going to be 35 in July and has never developed a jump shot. He has a reputation as a dirty player. If he's doing stuff like this after games, teams might not think he's worth it to keep on a roster.


What's worse is that Beverley tried to make excuses on social media for his behavior. This man needs to be sat down and told what he did was wrong on multiple fronts. I hope I don't see him play in the NBA again for multiple reasons.
