The NBA season was on the brink of getting cancelled this week following the police shooting of Jacob Blake.
NBA players had discussions about whether or not to resume the season before they ultimately decided the playoffs would continue.
Roberts was trying to explain the financial ramifications of not returning to play but was interrupted by Beverley.
The Clippers guard reportedly told her, “No, I pay your salary,” when she asked if she could continue.
Beverley addressed those comments on Friday. However, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. isn’t believing that Beverley made the reported comment.
Zero chance I believe this… I would hope all the players understand that without Michelle, our league wouldn’t be anywhere near where it is today.. One of the most impressive people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting https://t.co/VYjsfNF4I4

Whether Beverley did or not, it seems the situation is resolved.
Spoke to some players who say that Pat Bev and Michele Roberts did have a ‘moment’ – but they spoke to each other yesterday morning and it has been completely resolved.

Regardless, Roberts clearly has an important position and players like Nance Jr. appreciate all that she does.
