Patrick Beverley responds to Clippers superstar treatment report: ‘Fake news’
Patrick Beverley was quick to dismiss Thursday’s report about supposed issues within the LA Clippers organization.
The veteran guard responded to The Athletic’s piece alleging how Clippers players have struggled with the preferential treatment that the team has shown to new stars Kawhi Leonard and Paul George. Beverley called the report “fake fake fake news” in a tweet.

The 31-year-old Beverley was one of the players mentioned in the piece as being somewhat close with Leonard, so he may not necessarily speak for the entire locker room. Still, he obviously feels strongly enough about the picture that the story appeared to paint.
Through it all, the Clippers are 31-14 on the year despite still figuring each other out and having to deal with a lot of injuries. Thus, the more worthwhile storyline may instead be what moves they make ahead of the trade deadline.
