Russell Westbrook and Patrick Beverley's beef includes knee injuries, Jay-Z quotes, and baby cradles

  • Published on:  12/13/2018
  • 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.
