Minnesota Timberwolves' Patrick Beverley fined $30K for 'egregious use of profanity'

Apr 14, 2022

Patrick Beverley's trash-talking to the LA Clippers cost him $30,000 after the Minnesota Timberwolves point guard was fined by the NBA for "egregious use of profanity" in postgame comments to the news media and on social media.

Beverley was emotional after Minnesota's come-from-behind 109-104 play-in win over his former team. He talked trash to the Clippers during and after the victory that clinched the seventh seed in the playoffs for Minnesota on Tuesday.

"Take they ass home," Beverley said of what he told his old teammates at the end of the game during his postgame media interview session. "Long flight to L.A. Take they ass home. It's deeper than that for me. I gave my blood and sweat and tears to that organization. You guys know the story.
