LaVar Ball Claps Back At Patrick Beverley

LaVar Ball Claps Back At Patrick Beverley”

Blake Griffin had 29 points and 12 rebounds, and DeAndre Jordan finished with 14 points and 24 rebounds to lead the Clippers.

While Ball may have most of his success in other players' shoes during the summer league, he said he was going to play in the Big Baller Brand shoes and he did just that.

And that's exactly what happened in the Clippers' 108-92 win, with Ball limited to 3 points, 9 rebounds and 4 assists on 1-of-6 shooting.

But Beverley tried to intimidate Ball verbally as well.

In Toronto, Jonas Valanciunas scored 23 points and grabbed 15 rebounds, C.J. Miles came off the bench to score 22 points and the Toronto Raptors defeated the Chicago Bulls 117-100 in the opening game of the season for each team.

Beverley said after the game that shutting Ball down was the best way to "welcome his little, young ass to the National Basketball Association".

"I just had to set the tone", Beverley said to reporters. He has to be ready for that. The fact that he was able to hold Ball scoreless on almost 30 plays, as well as limiting the assist opportunities, truly showed how much of an impact Beverley can make on defense. According to ESPN's Marc Spears, Beverley said, "Bring him out on the court with me and I will tear his [expletive] up".

Maybe nobody else will care quite as much about humiliating LaVar Ball by shutting his son down on the court, but Beverley raises a good point.

"He's got to find out what's in the kitchen cabinet".

You'd think a performance like that would quiet loudmouth LaVar for at least a few hours, but that didn't happen.

But he had no trouble finding words to shoot back at Beverley.

"Yeah, you shut the m--f-- down", LaVar said. "And your check still ain't going to go no higher than what it is". You can get him better with the film time and the coaching. He played all past year and nobody said nothing about him.

Of the five starters from a season ago, Luol Deng and Julius Randle are the only two players still on the roster, but neither looks to be in the first-choice five for Walton. Because Lonzo's name is attached to it ...
