Patrick Beverley got his revenge.

Patrick Beverley is one of the best pests in the entire NBA. Although he is far from the best player, he knows how to get under people's skin. Moreover, his podcast gives him the ability to go after players, officials, coaches, and pretty well anyone he wants. Needless to say, Beverley is someone who has actually made quite a few headlines this year, despite his lackluster player. That is especially true as it pertains to the Lakers and his subsequent signing with the Chicago Bulls.

On Sunday, Patrick Beverley was given the opportunity to exact revenge on his former team. Both the Lakers and the Bulls are trying to make the playoffs, and with the Bulls headed to Los Angeles, Beverley wanted to throw a wrench in the Lakers' plans. In the end, that is exactly what happened as the Bulls came out with the victory. This was LeBron's first game back from injury, and it wasn't exactly all that productive. Additionally, Beverley added insult to injury by hitting James with some top-level disrespect.

Patrick Beverley Has No Chill

In the video above, Beverley comes in on LeBron and scores a lay-up. Subsequently, he stares down the Lakers star and hits him with the "too small" pose. Coming from Patrick Beverley of all players, it was pretty hilarious. Although, if you are LeBron or a Lakers fan, it was anything but funny. In fact, it was pretty embarrassing given the circumstances. At this point, however, you have to hand it to Beverley for always being so confident, no matter what. He's a guy you love to have on your team, but hate to play against.

Despite the loss, the Lakers are still in the mix for a playoff spot. They will likely have to go the play-in route, although so will the Bulls. That said, the Lakers have some experienced players which will definitely make things easier. As for Patrick Beverley, he will continue to be a pest, and we're excited to see his antics as the season goes on. Let us know what you think about all of this, in the comments below.
