Pat Bev broke his own free agency news. Why that’s cool

Patrick Beverley is making bank by announing and analyzing his own career moves.

When Bev signed with the 76ers he gave the news to his podcast cohost Rone, and Rone tweeted it out 10 minutes before ESPN’s Woj or Shams could do it.

He was a second tier NBA free agent, but somehow I found myself listening to and enjoying the play-by-play of how he made the decision.

When a notorious fake news NBA account made up a Pat Bev quote, he retweeted it and squashed the rumor, letting fans know he only speaks thru his own podcast.

I love that and hope more athletes start podcasting and owning their narrative.
