Kevin Durant needs to stop beefing with Patrick Beverley - Jalen Rose | First Take

  • Published on Apr 16, 2019
  • Stephen A. Smith, Jalen Rose, Max Kellerman and Mike Greenberg assess the state of the Golden State Warriors after their shocking collapse in Game 2 against the Los Angeles Clippers. Jalen says Kevin Durant needs to take control of his matchup with Patrick Beverley to boost the Warriors past the Clippers, but Stephen A. says he's still not concerned about the Warriors because they have so much talent around KD. Max also addresses DeMarcus Cousins' injury and how it could open the door even more for the Houston Rockets in the western conference.

    I really think the sports analysts spin and spin on the Warriors almost as boringly as the hundreds of news media do spins on the most ignorant and the most arrogant and non-presidential leader of our times! Given Stephen A, Max and the others on the set....they do make some good points in seeing the weaknesses in some teams...but when it comes to playoff times they seem to unnecessarily gang up on the Warriors on purpose...because it is only "their" opinions...apart from percentages and other technical stats on Durant , Steph or any other Warrior on the cannot make a totally objective case for how they will lose against The Rockets!! Stats are what they are and only that! Once any player makes his or her own adjustments on becoming an improved,you have another set of stats based on improvement! One thing I have noticed about teams who are as physical against the Rockets...they end up either winning over them or coming close to beating them! Once a team set back and watch the carnage happening to them on both ends of the floor and NOT adjusting accordingly....those teams will be beaten by the Rockets! They are good and are as hungry as the Warriors are for a 3-peat! It will come down to physical AND mental toughness for both teams when the meet this post season! I will end with this thought for every one...Once the Warriors become "LOCKED IN" AND DIALED IN...there will be nothing but smoke and fire and Rockets will be overcome by all this fire and smoke!!

    By the time the Warriors see Popovich on the sidelines, KD will be on Tech Foul eggshells. I'm not fully sold that Golden State has everything clicking on all cylinders this season.

    Jalen Rose shut your mouth, you weren't that great in the NBA . You been living off the Fab Five. Game three of playoffs, KD HIT 38 points. He cannot be guarded and that is the statement he made Thursday. Hate him if you must but you can't stop him.

    Dude I know mfs are not seriously taking Patrick Beverley's side lol this mf has injured players and the only reason anyone knows him is because he plays dirty. You have to be a special kind of bitch to feel that the only way your team can win is by trying to injure the best players on the opposite team. Come on now. He is trash as a player and he shouldn't be respected in the league at all. Same goes for Zaza. Now if mfs are willing to take Patrick's side over kd just because kd left sorry ass westbitch get over it. That shit was years ago and I dnt blame him. Oklahoma will never win a championship as long as westbitch is on that team because all he worries about is triple doubles. So I salute kd for embarrassing that little insect.

He never spoke abt Patrick McCaw & andre iguadola's injury @all during de playoffs series vs Rockets & we had to handle tht... we still put up digits on them wannabe's making history & becoming de second team in nba history to win game 7 on de road since de 2002 la Lakers...

    When Patrick Beverly went or got Hire by Clippers it was for one purpose to apply his style of duty player that he do against the Warriors .he reflects the style of system that Doc Rivers likes to Coach and that's why Beverly is there .who can say that Beverly will be on there roaster for next season is up to Doc if he stays or go .

    Max Kellerman is an idiot! Yea the Warriors beat the wack ass Cavs in the Championship but Lebron had help...lets not forget, they had K Love, JR Smith, T Thompson, I Shumpert, M Dellavedova, D Waiters, S Marion, M Miller, (K Irving injured), and Mozgov. Yes that was the 2014-2015 Cavs squad. So how the hell was Dellavedova the 2nd best player on that squad? LOL.. It's always some dumb analyst who's probably never played in a true team game to make a stupid comment like that.. Get right, the Warriors wouldve beaten the Cavs in 2016 just like they did in 2015. Lets not forget, if it wasnt for the Draymond Green/Lebron James incident in Game 5, the Warriors wouldve finished these SAME weak ass Cavs in Game 6 but , "CRYBABY ASS" Lebron and the Cavs got Draymond Green suspended for Game 6 and somehow the momentum shifted. It happens.
    Which BTW, FYI, the Warriors didnt have KD....!! Kellerman, stay in boxing, which you still suck at analyzing.

    Molly IS fxcking Maxi-million. Jalen and her are OVER. I am the first to say so and have been. Remember this comment. Screenshot it. Tell your friends you knew way before it came out.. rewatch and track her eyes 👀 and her facials when Jalen talks (disgruntled) when SAS talks (disgruntled) BUT when Max speaks you can see (if talented with women) she is in a state of ADMIRATION noticed this ages ago (sure Max figured her out ASAP). Then go back and look at others. Even when she “puts her foot down” towards a Max point it more as though she is interjecting to “save me” as we all know Max’s “points” it’s saving him from himself ROTFL 😂 but when he is on point, he has been known to crush it at certain times.

    Bogut is better for the Warriors offense than Boogie.
    More rebounds. Less suction. Better screener. Not a better passer, but still a great passer.

    KD is a hybrid of MJ and Bird. He can obliterate he’s opponent all day. He just got Beverley in his head in game one that’s it and now you’ll see who’s the real goat this time.

    Loool everyone worried about KD..KD is not even worried about KD

  • Lit101 - Games and Good Vibes

    Here's what it is. Either Pat Bev is a great defender and threw KD off. Or KD can do whatever he wants and get any shot but chose not to.
    Or KD can do whatever he wants chose not to and Pat Bev was a great defender and got under his skin.
    Either way KD is KD and can't let that happen. Why? Cause he's KD. He was being a bitch and Needs to Be KD. Like he said "I'm Kevin Durant".
    Then why'd you play like LeBron? Why'd you defer? Cause you're up 30?
    Lemme tell you something KD, you had two and-ones trying to get y'all back in the game and the next shot YOU take YOU run down and YOU decided to throw up an iso top of the key 3. It Bricked. Wtf? Drive again. You NEED the bucket. Go grab it, a foul, draw the defense or something. But no, you had something to prove. Gtfo there shut your mouth and play the game. Shoot over Bev. Run through him. Somethin and stop talking. Goddamn.
