Patrick Beverley had some thoughts about Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic overselling foul calls which drew the ire of NBA fans on Monday night.
While speaking to the media after game 3 of the Clippers-Nuggets series, Beverley called out Jokic and compared him to Luka Doncic for the way he flails his arms to “put pressure” on refs to call fouls on his opponents.

It’s really hard to Beverley’s comments seriously considering he’s notorious for overselling foul calls and has been fined by the league for flopping.
Fans responded to Beverley’s comments by instantly posting all the times he’s flopped in the past few years.

There’s even a four-minute highlight video of Beverley flopping on Youtube.
Beverley might want to sit this one out next time.
