Patrick Beverley’s Controversial And Poor Conduct In Game 6 Vs Fans And Reporters


In the heat of competition, emotions can run high, and the line between passion and misconduct can blur. Such was the case with Milwaukee Bucks guard Patrick Beverley during and after Game 6 against the Indiana Pacers. Beverley’s actions, which included throwing a basketball at fans and displaying rudeness towards a reporter, have sparked a conversation about sportsmanship and the responsibilities of professional athletes.

With just over two minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, Beverley, standing near his team’s bench, threw the ball at a group of courtside fans, hitting one in the head. He then asked for the ball back and threw it again with more force. This behavior is not only unsportsmanlike but also dangerous, risking injury to fans who are there to enjoy the game.



The controversy didn’t end with the final buzzer. In the post-game environment, Beverley’s demeanor remained confrontational. When approached by ESPN’s Malinda Andrews for a question, Beverley’s response was dismissive and rude, saying that she can’t interview him since she doesn’t subscribe to his podcast.

This lack of professionalism not only disrespects the media’s role in engaging with players but also tarnishes the image of the team and the league.



The NBA has a history of addressing such incidents seriously, and Beverley’s actions will likely be reviewed by the league. Given the precedent set by past events, a steep fine or suspension could be on the horizon for Beverley.
