Patrick Beverley had some battles with Stephen Curry during the playoffs when Beverley was with the Los Angeles Clippers. At one point, the veteran guard supposedly told Curry “the next five years are mine.” Of course, Beverley claims that never happened.
The Warriors had made five straight NBA Finals appearances before the Clippers blew them out early in the 2019-20 season. Sean Deveney of Heavy.com reported at the time that Beverley talked some trash to Curry during that game, telling the two-time MVP, “You had the last five years, the next five are mine.” Curry is said to have laughed and replied, “Aren’t you 31?”
With Beverley having been traded this week (twice), Josiah Johnson decided to mock him over the alleged exchange.
