Patrick Beverley of the LA Clippers continues to prove that his competitive nature extends beyond the basketball court and into his everyday life.

If you think Patrick Beverley is a menace on defense for the LA Clippers, you should see him hit the boards.

We don’t mean rebounds, we’re talking about board games.  The Clippers guard recently posted video to his Instagram of himself dominating a home game of Monopoly with friends. Swish Daily has a compilation of the footage available on YouTube.

The classic Hasbro board game tasks players to buy property, collect rent, build hotels, and ruthlessly bankrupt their fellow players. It has a reputation for getting pretty competitive, and even starting some fights between competitors.

Sounds like it’s right up Beverley’s alley.

Beverley boasted in his videos about how much property he amassed, and how much money he was owed by his opponents. He doesn’t let up one bit, and trash-talks them as they pay up for landing on his properties.

“I beat everybody. Y’all stop playing with me, man” Beverley taunts as he films himself dropping stacks of Monopoly money onto the board after his victory.

Beverley also recently competed in the NBA 2K tournament on ESPN, where his top-of-the-line trash talking was the highlight of the first round of the competition.

He didn’t have as much luck in the video game world as he did at the board game based on the streets of Atlantic City. Beverley lost in the semi-finals of the 2K tournament to Deandre Ayton of the Phoenix Suns.

dark. Next. NBA should have NBA 2K tournament on All-Star weekend

Clippers fans don’t have to worry that their starting guard is spending too much time sitting around playing games during the break in play. He says he’s also “working out like a madman” during the quarantine.
