Patrick Beverley’s Funny Rejoinder When Vince Carter Tells Him To Chill

Patrick Beverley

Confession time: we love Patrick Beverley. The guy plays so freakin’ hard and makes it so difficult for opposing ball handlers to get comfortable, there just aren’t many like him in the NBA.* Except, he has a tendency to rub some players the wrong way, and Vince Carter told him to chill last night after Beverley celebrated drawing an offensive foul. Beverley’s response was just about perfect, though. Read More »

Over a decade ago Vince Carter was mentioned in the same breath as Kobe Bryant. It seems crazy now, especially after Kobe’s five rings ran parallel to Carter’s now-five separate teams since leaving the Raptors in the lurch midway through the 2004-05 season (Nets, Suns, Magic, Mavs, and he signed with the Grizzlies last month). But a new mix published a couple days ago by Max Frishberg shows how resilient Carter has been despite his failure to meet somewhat unrealistic expectations after he burst onto the scene as the NBA’s Rookie of the Year during the strike-shortened 1999 season.

Good news: We are still very early into the conference semifinals, meaning there is still a lot more trash-talking to be had, buzzer-beaters to be made and dunks to be slammed for the rest of the playoffs.

Bad news: We are already in May at the conference semifinals, meaning in a little over one month the NBA season will be over. And that sucks. Read More »
