Patrick Beverley Celebrated Way Too Early When Kawhi Leonard And Paul George Joined The Clippers: “I Just Won The F***ing Championship.”

Patrick Beverley Celebrated Way Too Early When Kawhi Leonard And Paul George Joined The Clippers: “I Just Won The F***ing Championship.”

The Los Angeles Clippers franchise hasn't had much success in its 52 years of history. While the team has produced some superstars, they have never been able to make their mark in the league, failing to become champions in the Western Conference even.

But all of this was supposed to change in the 2019-20 season. Despite their city rivals Los Angeles Lakers, trading for Anthony Davis, the Clippers were considered the best team in the league.

This was due to the fact that two All-Stars, Kawhi Leonard and Paul George, signed with the team, and the franchise already had some great role players on the side with the likes of Lou Williams and Montrezl Harrell, to name a few. 

Among them there was Patrick Beverley as well. As soon as the duo of George and Kawhi joined the team, Beverley reportedly had an eccentric reaction to the organization bringing in the duo as he jumped up on a table at a 5-star Italian restaurant repeatedly shouting, "I just won the f**king championship."

It's safe to say that the reaction didn't age well. While the team had a great showing in the regular season, the Clippers suffered a meltdown in the 2020 playoffs. Suffering an embarrassing defeat at the hands of the Denver Nuggets, the Clippers blew one of their best chances to become NBA champions. The Lakers, meanwhile, made it worse as they won the championship the same year.

Ever since then, things haven't been much better for Beverley or the Clippers. While the guard has joined the likes Minnesota Timberwolves and now the Utah Jazz, LAC has seen both of their superstars miss significant time due to injuries.

The organization will hope that both Kawhi and PG13 return fully healthy for the next season and can finally show the world why they were considered one of the top teams in the West. Beverley, meanwhile, has a very uncertain future in front of him and might get traded from the Jazz as well. What do you think the future holds for Beverley and the Clippers? Is a reunion on the cards?
