  • The famously outspoken Patrick Beverely was a guest at ESPN’s NYC studio on Monday morning.
  • The Timberwolves guard literally bounced from show to show to talk smack about Chris Paul.
  • While on Get Up, Pat Bev compared Chris Paul’s defending to that of a “cone.”

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Patrick Beverley, who has established a reputation as one of the league’s elite defenders despite making just one All-Defensive First Team during his decade-long NBA career, was a guest at ESPN Southstreet Seaport Studios in New York City on Monday and used a majority of his airtime to fire shots at Chris Paul.

Appearing on both Get Up and First Take, Beverley — who already chirped Chris Paul on Twitter last night following the Suns’ pitiful Game 7 loss — fired shots at Paul, saying that, unlike Stephen A. Smith, he *does not* consider Paul to be one of the game’s greatest-ever point guard. He also compared Paul’s defensive abilities to that of a practice cone.

“Do I go to bed at 10 pm the night before playing Chris Paul? Hell no,” Beverley told Mike Greenberg and Stephen A. Smith on First Take. “But if I’m playing Steph Curry tomorrow, I’m going to bed at 8 o’clock and telling my girl not to call me!”

During the Suns’ crucial Game 7, the 37-year-old future Hall of Famer had just 10 points, four assists, and one rebound. To be fair to Paul, though, he wasn’t the only member of the Suns to underperform when it mattered most, as their other two stars, Devin Booker and Deandre Ayton, also had abysmal games. Booker, considered one of the league’s best players, had just 11 points, two assists, and three rebounds, while Ayton had just five points, two assists, and four rebounds.

Following their Game 7 victory over the top-seeded Suns, Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks will head to California on Wednesday night to take on Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and the Golden State Warriors.
