Russell Westbrook vs. Patrick Beverley is a pretty straightforward beef. Westbrook arrived in the NBA as a touted lottery pick. Beverley was a stashed second-rounder who bounced around Europe before getting his shot. Early in Beverley's NBA career, they collided ... literally. Beverley lunged at Westbrook's legs, and the resulting knee injury ended Westbrook's ironman streak, ended the Thunder's title hopes, and started several years of medium-rare beef on and off the court.

I admire Beverly's defense and determination but he can be a really annoying guy at court and intentionally injure players

the fact that westbrook is still able to be this productive and an elite athlete speaks volume to his work ethic and dedication but those surgeries are going to catch up real soon. he has already shown signs of decline (though minor if you don't pay attention) and hes 30.

Thunder might have won the Championship in 2013 had Beverly not done what he did, in fact, I'd say they would have. While Miami had beat the thunder both times in the regular season, Oklahoma City was the best team in the West and they had a great defensive player in Serge Ibaka and two major scoring threats in K.D. and Russ. They would've beat the Heat in the Finals, change my mind.

I don’t know if it’s just me but I don’t like Westbrook. He seems super arrogant and from his interviews it seems like he thinks he is better than everyone else. He is self centered, and just doesn’t seem very smart. I could be wrong, but he has lack-luster grammar and is stand-off-ish

Beverley is a garbage person. Can't be in the NBA through talent and hardwork so he decides to be there by being the guy who injures the other team's best player

I like Westbrook as a player, i love his tenacity and passion when playing but he's a statpadder and you cant win a ring with that kind of play.

It’s rare in a beef where one person is unambiguously at fault.

When Beverly played for Olympiakos in Greece he didn't play a lot and was thought to be a mediocre player. I respect him for all the work he has done in order to become a good player in the NBA

Russ has an interesting way of dressing himself down. Probably explains why he wants to do it all as a player.

I’m a Celtics fan and I got mad respect for Patrick Beverley, he’s a bulldog, he does what bulldogs do, he’s thirsty for the ball and is ready to do the dirty work.

I have more respect for Harden than I do for Beverley. That's how bad Beverley is. He's worse than James Harden.

Ultimately if you hate the GSW after KD slithered there, then you should hate Pat Bev too because if Russ ain't injured for those playoff runs

The fact no one has fired off on Beverley just shows how soft these boys are. Let Beverley pull that stunt in the 80s or 90s

Russ no rings, Harden no rings. The only one that has is Durant. He was the only one at the heist of the Sonics. If you don't believe in curses, start........................

Why NBA can let Beverley to do such Unnecessary Roughness Conduct in NFL again and again? NFL doesn't allow any defensive move under a quarterback's knee, does it? Why NBA can ?
