NBA veteran Patrick Beverley has openly revealed a household rule of his on the eve of gamedays, amid a late push to reach the playoffs in April with the Chicago Bulls, following his midseason trade from the Los Angeles Lakers.
‘I don’t have sex the night before games,’ said the 34-year-old point guard on the latest episode of his Barstool Sports podcast, before his co-host, Rone, pointed out that it was to keep his legs fresh.
‘I want to have fresh [legs], you know what I’m saying?’
‘Wifey gonna kill me, though,’ Beverley then quipped, referring to his relationship with Iranian-born fashion and beauty entrepreneur, influencer, philanthropist, and interior designer, Mandana Bolourchi.
‘It’s hard, though, because you got a game every other day and s***,’ added the former Houston Rockets, LA Clippers, Minnesota Timberwolves and Lakers player.

Beverley (L) has been dating Iranian-born fashion entrepreneur, Mandana Bolourchi, for a little over a year, according to reports
‘So, when I was in LA… I don’t want to get too deep, but hey wifey.’
Beverley didn’t elaborate on any further details, but briefly paused the podcast to give a quick ‘shoutout’ to Bolourchi.
‘I don’t think people know our history though,’ he said, before hesitating on whether he should explain how he and his girlfriend met a little over a year ago, according to Sportskeeda.
‘Some Iranian backstory that people aren’t aware of?’ Rone asked before Beverley nodded his head in agreement, without spilling the beans.
‘Interesting, because she’s been a very outspoken human rights activist,’ Rone then mentioned.
‘I call her Princess of Dubai,’ Beverley joked, adding, ‘She has three Rolls Royces. I’m lucky. I like to feel like I’m one of the chosen ones. I attract good energy also.’
Per Sportskeeda, Bolourchi owns her own business, which is believed to be named after herself. She’s teamed up with industry-leading fashion brands including ‘Dolce & Gabbana’ and Harper’s Bazaar.
The social media influencer also placed personal investments in real estate and is believed to have an estimated net worth of $5million.

Beverley returned to his hometown, Chicago, to lead the Bulls to a late playoff surge before the regular NBA season ends in April
Beverley also preferred to stay quiet on Bolourchi’s backstory, as not much is known of her life
Beverley started off the 2022-23 season on the Lakers, before being dealt to the Orlando Magic before the NBA’s February 9th trade deadline.
He was bought out by Orlando prior to reaching an agreement to play for the Bulls and has been the team’s good luck charm, going 8-4 since donning his hometown’s uniform.
‘I’m excited about his year, man,’ Beverley said. ‘I’m feeling good. I’m feeling healthy. I’m having so much fun […] I’m so f***ing happy.’
Chicago currently ranks as the No. 10 seed of the Eastern Conference, the last play-in spot. The Bulls hold a 2.5 game-lead on the Pacers, who occupy the 11th seed.
Beverley scored six points in a 109-105 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday. He put in a defensive masterclass, limiting James Harden to only five points, despite his 12 assists.
