8. Patrick Beverley
Patrick Beverley, who is commonly known as Mr. 94 Feet, has a bond to the city of Chicago that seemingly runs deeper than skin and thicker than blood. This means everything to the NBA star who prides himself for having a blue collar worker mentality.
Now in his seventh year, Beverley has found a bit of a home for himself with one of the NBA’s hottest teams, the Los Angeles Clippers.
It all began in January of 2013 when he made his NBA debut with the Houston Rockets. Beverley earned his nickname over time for the way he aggressively gets after opposing teams at the defensive end.
Among Beverley’s most esteemed accolades include two All-Defensive Team nods and ranking among the top 20 in three-point field goal percentage for one season.
Beverley has posted career averages of 8.9 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game. Prior to the NBA’s hiatus, he was averaging 7.9 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 assists per game.
Beverley was born in Chicago. He attended high school at Marshall Metropolitan High School in Chicago and went to college at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
It remains unclear if Beverley makes for a viable candidate to be inducted as a player into the Hall of Fame. He currently has a 0% chance of making it happen.
