The Minnesota Timberwolves were knocked out of the playoffs, but that didn’t stop Patrick Beverley from being himself. The veteran guard sent out a Tweet Thursday night that reminded the world that his Timberwolves “ended basketball in Los Angeles” this season, after beating the Clippers in the play-in game, and helping knock the Lakers out of the play-in competition.
Beverley signed a one-year extension with the Minnesota Timberwolves during the season, so he’ll likely be back with the team next year. He was instrumental in changing the dynamic of this team and ultimately elevating it to playoff-caliber level. Although their season ended earlier than they expected, it also lasted much longer than expected. While a first-round exit wasn’t the goal, Beverley jokingly appreciates that he and his Timberwolves helped keep the Clippers and Lakers out of the playoffs.
Beverley followed up her Tweet with a reminder not to take Twitter so seriously, seemingly clarifying that her initial Tweet was a joke. While it should already have been obvious by the hashtags, some people are still more focused on the hate than the context. Beverley is no stranger to these enemies, as she has several. Understanding this, he continues to be himself unabashedly, which is part of what makes him so successful.
