Michael Beasley thinks his NBA 2k12 rating is a bit on the …. high side.

Usually when an athlete hears about their video game rating, they think it’s absurdly low. After all, having that kind of ego is central to their ability to step up and make plays. Don’t get it confused, that’s not always a good thing, especially when it comes to Michael Beasley. (Clang.) But surprisingly, in an interview with where he acknowledged his little mush-face incident, he wasn’t upset with his 78 rating. In fact, he didn’t think it would be that… high. (Yeeaaaaaahhh.) 2K12 ratings leaked early, you got a 78 how do you feel about that?

MB: That’s higher than I thought.

Well, hey, Bease, glad you can be honest with yourself. Maybe think about that the next time you’ve got that 18 footer with two defenders closing and Kevin Love‘s in the corner screaming “I’m open. I’m open. For the love of God, I’m open.” Just a thought. You know, thinking outside the box.

    type-o Beasley actually said “I’m higher than I thought.”

    Honest Mistake

    I guess I have to come to Beasley’s defense here. I thought his rating would be higher. I mean, his “Hurry the **** up and shoot that ****” rating must be, like, 156. But on the other hand, that might get weighed down by his -48 pass rating.
