Matt Barnes Slams Patrick Beverley Over ‘Disrespectful’ Chris Paul Comments

Pat Bev knows exactly what he’s doing.

ESPN invited Patrick Beverley to join the morning shows and unleash his inner hater in front of a national audience. Beverley had Chris Paul in his crosshairs and his viral moment came when he told Stephen A. Smith that Paul was a “traffic cone” on defense.

Beverley’s comments were amusing but they weren’t entirely accurate. Matt Barnes noticed this and decided he had to say something during an episode of NBA Today.

Watch below:

Beverley blasting Paul right after the worst loss of the future Hall of Famer’s career is very on brand for Pat Bev.

Chris Paul is not a young man, so no one is taking Beverley’s comments to heart. CP3 is still one of the great ones regardless if he ever wins a ring.

He’ll be placed in the same category as Karl Malone and Charles Barkley..
