Patrick Beverly has been trolling the crap out of Kevin Durant, but for some reason, he’s not about to act that way towards Steph Curry.   

“I ain’t gonna come at nobody and I know he’s a hitter,” Beverley explained on the “Knuckleheads” podcast with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. “Ain’t no need to talk to him. I know what he brings. I’m locked in. I’m watching him.

“I ain’t gonna go out there and talk trash to Steph Curry — Steph Curry gets 30 shots a game. Some people you pick your battles with. Steph Curry see me (not talking) and then he’s like, ‘Oh, what’s up with Pat? Oh, he locked in.’

“So it’s just different approaches with people.”

Beverley was then asked to list some of the toughest players to guard.

“Dame (Damian Lillard), he’s up there. He’s tough,” Beverley said. “He’s cold within the offense they run, too. He’s got the ball but everything ain’t for him. You put Dame in Golden State or put Dame in a Houston Rockets type of offense … I think we’re only getting a little bit of a taste.

“Kemba (Walker). Gotta put Russ (Russell Westbrook) up there because you don’t know what you’re gonna get from Russ. He can go cold for five games and then you play him and he hit five threes.

“I’d put them three for sure.”

So Steph is a heavy hitter, but not one of the three heavy hitters toughest to guard. 

Patrick Beverly is being talked about way too much this postseason.
