PatBev to the Lakers? The bad blood between him and Westbrook goes back a decade. And today he’ll take a few of Westbrook’s minutes? That is much better than WWE. It’s now “SideShowtime.”

It’s still possible the Lakers deal Westbrook prior to the year tips off in October. It wouldgive them some much-needed financial flexibility because they attempt tocontinue reshaping the roster around James and Davis after adisappointing 2021-22 campaign.

Yet, new Lakers head coach Darvin Hamhas reiterated on multiple occasions he’s thrilled about theopportunity to utilize the nine-time All-Star, so a trade isn’t alock.

“I’m excited as hell to possess RussellWestbrook on we,” Ham said in July.

So it is not unthinkable that Westbrook and Beverley will undoubtedly be teammates to open the growing season, and thatwould likely provide NBA Twitter with a lot of entertainment.

Their animosity goes back to 2013, whenever a collision between your pair resulted in Westbrook suffering a season-ending knee injury, per Nick Jungfer of Basketball Forever.

They engaged in further in-game confrontations in 2014, 2017 and 2018.

The fiery competitors continued to switch words through the years, both on / off the court, including several Beverley posts on Twitter earlier this season.
