Chandler Parsons thinks there are no hard feelings between LeBron James and Patrick Beverley after Beverley hit James with the "too small" celebration. After scoring over James with a minute to go and sealing the Chicago Bulls' win over the Los Angeles Lakers, Beverley hit his former teammate with the "too small" celebration.
Beverley, who started the season with the Lakers, was traded to the Bulls prior to the trade deadline. On Sunday, Beverley enjoyed a triumphant return to Los Angeles as the Bulls beat the Lakers 118-108.
Parsons on Beverley's celebration on James
“If anything, it’s pure entertainment, right? It’s comedy.
He played as well as he can. Knowing him and knowing the guys, it’s nothing personal. It’s not like LeBron or any of these guys in locker room dislike Patrick Beverley. When he’s on your team, man you love him.
He’s just one of those guys, he is an absolute annoyance, he is a pest to play against but you want him on your team. And things like this, this is hilarious and the timing is perfect. He is probably a partner and has a deal with Charmin.
But just the idea that he’s calling them soft and everything he said about going in there. And it didn’t end well in there. He’s been very vocal about his time in L.A. and this was a dream scenario for him. he kind of hurt their chances slightly, they went to their place where he used to play, got the win," Parsons said on FanDuel TV, per TalkBasket.
Beverley is well-known as one of the biggest trash-talkers in the game. On Sunday, it was evident that he was very determined to get a win over the Lakers. In the end, Beverley had a good all-around performance as he scored 10 points, four rebounds and five assists.
