On the latest episode of his podcast, the Pat Bev Pod, Milwaukee Bucks guard Patrick Beverley made it clear that he's currently dealing with an injury.

Beverley says he injured his right wrist before Milwaukee's recent win over the OKC Thunder and will require surgery that will sideline him for three to four months. Yet, he appears intent on holding off on that for the moment, showcasing his toughness and desire to win with a fiery quote on the podcast.

"I've gotta get me a championship this year. Straight up. Have to. Like have to. I have to. Put some spit, put some dirt on it. Story is not over. Got work to do. I don't want to hear none of that sorry s*** neither... No f****** excuses. Go get it done, Pat."

Amid injury, Bucks' Patrick Beverley shows desire to win with profanity-laced quote

Anyone who has ever heard a Patrick Beverley quote should not be surprised by this. The guard has always been one to wear his heart on his sleeve, and he's certainly not going to be bashful about his emotions on his own podcast. Right now, his only objective is to win with the Milwaukee Bucks, and he's going to do everything in his power to continue playing and making an all-around impact.

From the moment he set foot in Milwaukee following a 2024 NBA Trade Deadline deal with the rivaling Philadelphia 76ers, Beverley's impact on this team has been clear as day. Not only has he brought his trademark defense and intensity, but he's also given the team a second-unit leader who has helped elevate the play of others, particularly fellow former Arkansas Razorback Bobby Portis.

Moving forward, this injury will likely be under a microscope day by day. Beverley will have to play in some pain, but knowing him, it's a price he's willing to pay if it helps the Milwaukee Bucks reach their ultimate goal of taking home another NBA title, clearly.

All Bucks fans can do is applaud the toughness and willingness to put it all on the line to help the franchise like this. On top of that, this quote and Beverley opting to play through the injury should help rally his teammates, giving them some extra motivation, knowing how much one of their own is putting on the line by electing to play through this wrist injury rather than get it fixed immediately.
