Draymond Green has a message for Patrick Beverley after postgame meltdown

Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green, infamously known for his own on-court antics, shared a message for Patrick Beverley on his podcast in light of Thursday night’s controversies surrounding the Milwaukee Bucks guard.

“Pat, you can’t keep having these moments, man, at the end of these losses,” Green said in Draymond’s Green Show. “You start to look like the kid who’s going to grab the ball and say, ‘I’m going home. I can’t play. We’re leaving here. I’m leaving the park, it’s my ball.’

“Come on, Pat.”

Beverley went viral in the final minutes of the Bucks’ 120–98 loss to the Indiana Pacers for throwing a basketball at a fan behind the Milwaukee bench, twice.

“This opens up a whole different can of worms,” ​​Green said of Beverly’s basketball pitch. “(NBA commissioner) Adam (Silver) is going to have a problem with this one. It’s the closest thing to being in the stands. That’s off-limits to us.”

After all that, Beverley dug himself into another hole in the Bucks locker room. He refused to answer a reporter’s question because she didn’t subscribe to her podcast and asked him to stop the fuss around her locker.

“In fact, I try to take the complete opposite approach because I really appreciate the NBA supporting podcasts the way they do,” Green said.

Beverly will be an unrestricted free agent this offseason. If the 35-year-old finds a new home in the NBA in the coming months, he will likely serve a suspension for his antics Thursday to open the season.
