This isn't the first incident Patrick Beverley has had with fans in Oklahoma City. The Rockets guard ran into Thunder guard Russell Westbrook during the 2013 playoffs. Westbrook injured his knee during the play and several fans have reacted angrily since then. But a ballboy went on twitter and threatened to kill Beverley.

Older NBA players may lose their foot speed but they make up for it defensively by being quicker of mind & in right position. Know the game.

Small, but good update on Steve Kerr. Heard he was feeling well enough to watch film with coaches today and wanted to get to practice after

Here's Patrick Beverley's opening statement to the media on the $25,000 fine: "If the NBA won't or help protect players in situations with fans, I'm okay with the hazing, I'm okay with the boos, I'm okay with the other fans rooting for their team but I'm not okay with the blatant disrespect. When I'm on the ground, after a foul, and a fan yelling after me, 'FU Patrick Beverley FU Patrick Beverley, FU Patrick Beverley', waving a clapper in my face, I'm not comfortable with that. So if the NBA won't protect the players in that manner, I feel the need as a man, as a grown man who has children, who has morals, stand up for the right thing. I have to protect myself and I felt like I didn't do anything out of the ordinary. I felt like I addressed him and (said), 'At the end of the day this is a basketball game this is a game, I'm a grown man, your a grown man, let's keep it professional.' Just like that. There's no need for plant disrespect, and that's all."

Listening to Cavs-Pacers on the radio & they keep referring to "Earl Smith" & I can't tell if it's an attempt to be clever, or disrespectful
