An old quote from Russell Westbrook went viral on Wednesday night after news of Patrick Beverley’s reported trade to the Lakers.

A few reports said that Beverley was being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers for Talen Horton-Tucker and Stanley Johnson.

Instantly, everyone made the same joke about Beverley suddenly becoming teammates on the Lakers with his longtime nemesis, Westbrook.

In the same vein, a 2019 quote from Westbrook about Beverley was recycled and went viral.

Yeesh, that was a harsh quote from Westbrook. Now the two are supposed to put their beef aside and become teammate? That won’t be easy. Westbrook carries a chip on his shoulder and isn’t one to easily let things go.

Best of luck to the Lakers on having these two work things out.
