Pat Beverly Michele Roberts

Patrick Beverley has a verbal altercation with the executive director of the players’ union

During one point in Wednesday’s league-wide players meeting, Michele Roberts asked to have the floor to discuss the financial ramifications of going on strike for the remainder of the playoffs.

As Roberts was going over the numbers, sources tell Chris Haynes of Yahoo! Sports that Patrick Beverley abruptly interrupted her and stated he disagreed with her logic.

Roberts reiterated that these were potential financial losses the players would suffer and Beverley interrupted her again.

Roberts asked politely if she could continue with her point, and Beverley responded, “No, I pay your salary,” sources said. 

Chris Paul, Udonis Haslem and others intervened and told Beverley that disrespect would not be tolerated. 

Pat Beverley is apparently an off the court troll too.
