Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors have dominated the past five seasons.
Following the departure of Kevin Durant, Shaun Livingston, and Andre Iguodala, the Warriors have become a shell of their former selves — and people are starting to notice.
In their 141-122 loss to the L.A. Clippers last Thursday, Patrick Beverley delivered a powerful message to the 2x MVP.

Last week, too, Clippers guard Patrick Beverley was captured on video taunting the crowd at the Chase Center, the new $1.4 billion arena the Warriors have opened in San Francisco, for leaving the game early during L.A.’s blowout win.
“Hey, hey, hey, hey,” Beverley shouted. “Where you all going? Where you all going?”
And Beverley hounded Curry throughout the game. With 1:28 to play in the second quarter, Beverley forced Curry into a turnover, turned and jawed at the Golden State bench. Beverley then squared off with Curry at the other end of the floor and began talking trash.
“You had the last five years,” Beverley told Curry, according to a source. “The next five years are mine.”
Of course, Curry did not let those words go unanswered.
To that, Curry laughed and replied, “Aren’t you 31?”
Patrick Beverly reportedly told Stephen Curry “You had the last five years, the next five years are mine.”
Steph’s response: “Aren’t you 31?” 💀

Regardless of Curry’s epic response, it is clear that the Warriors’ days of dominating the NBA are over.
Patrick Beverley is just one of many folks enjoying their downfall.
