Michael Beasley

  1. Derrick Williams thought he should have been No. 1 pick

    Nov 1, 2011, 5:21 PM EDT

    Derrick Williams

    The quote below can be taken out of context, as ego run amok. And it shouldn’t. Derrick Williams — the Arizona star who No. 2 overall to Minnesota in the last NBA draft — said what I would want any No. 2 pick to say. He said he thought he should be No. 1. You…

  2. Beasley sues AAU coach, former agent in one ugly mess

    Michael Beasley

    College recruiting is an ugly, dirty business. One most basketball fans just try to ignore it because, well, we love the game and don’t like to see its reputation sullied. But a lawsuit filed by Timberwolves forward brings it all out in the open, as reported by the Washington Post. In September Joel Bell, Beasley’s…

  3. Video: Top 10 plays from Kevin Durant’s charity game

    Oct 24, 2011, 10:23 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant, LeBron James

    Kevin Durant gave the fans in Oklahoma City what they have been dying to see — a huge game from Michael Beasley. No? Well, Beasley did have 56 points in Durant’s Sunday charity game in Oklahoma City, showing that when he plays in a game with no defense he can score (he was almost scoreless…

  4. No All-Stars showed up for Michael Beasley’s All-Star Classic

    Oct 23, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    From the department of “Aw, sad panda” comes this element regarding Wolves forward Michael Beasley. Beasley had organized a charity event in Minnesota, billing it as the “All-Star Classic,” promoting it as including Kevin Durant and Kevin Love along with John Wall and No.2 overall Timberwolves pick Derrick Williams. One problem. They didn’t show. From…

  5. Beasley is doing ballet. Oh, and he hired a PR firm to help his image.

    Oct 21, 2011, 11:15 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley is working on a transformation. Of himself, of his image. It’s going to take a lot of work. And a lot of time. He was arrested this summer for marijuana possession and pushed a guy in the face in a New York street ball game, two things that didn’t help the cause. But…

  6. Observations from Drew/Goodman payback game

    Oct 10, 2011, 9:10 AM EDT

    John Wall

    It was fun. At the end of the day, that’s all you can really take away from the Pyramid on the Long Beach State campus and the Drew League vs. Goodman League rematch. John Wall and Kevin Durant and Nick Young had monster dunks. There were 195 points scored. Fun is all it should be.…

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

    Oct 2, 2011, 7:32 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    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…

  8. Apparently Michael Beasley’s wrist is not broken after all

    Sep 1, 2011, 9:21 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    In the future, we should note even the most reliable reports out of China need to be taken with grains of salt. One of those reports was that Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley likely fractured a wrist while in a tournament in China. Turns out there is no fracture, tweeted ESPN’s Ric Bucher. Report on Michael…

  9. Paul Pierce says he did not have an asthma attack in China

    Boston Celtics forward Paul Pierce reacts to a call by the officials in Boston

    We brought you the report out of China Wednesday that both Paul Pierce and Michael Beasley suffered an asthma attack during a recent tournament where they had to play in a smoke-filled arena. And by smoke filled we mean cigarette, as in the fans are all smoking in the arena. But Paul Pierce says that…

  10. They allow smoking in Chinese arenas? Bad idea.

    Aug 31, 2011, 1:50 PM EDT

    Paul Pierce

    September 1, 1:51 am: Paul Pierce went to twitter today to deny the report of him having an asthma attack. Pierce says he does not even have asthma. It’s unclear about Beasley — well, he did fracture his wrist, but we don’t know about the asthma attack — so take that with a grain or…

  11. Winderman: Beasley injury could give other players pause

    Aug 29, 2011, 12:46 PM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves v Boston Celtics

    The NBA-headed-overseas movement appears to be at a waiting-to-exhale moment. For weeks, the “What if?” scenarios of the supposed mass migration were ones mostly reduced to whispers. What if an NBA player is injured overseas? What if such an injury impacted an existing contract? What if overseas insurance doesn’t cover every eventuality? According to a…

  12. Michael Beasley may have broken wrist in China

    Aug 29, 2011, 11:06 AM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Reports out of China are a little sketchy, but it could be bad news for Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley. First there is this tweet from Rijay Wang (via Hoopshype): Report: Michael Beasley suffered wrist injury in Sunday night at China Championships, had to get wrist re-examined, possible wrist break. Here is the link to the…

  13. Video: Brandon Jennings goes off his defender’s head

    Aug 8, 2011, 9:28 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Atlanta Hawks, Game 7

    I used to think the pass between your opponent’s legs was about the most embarrassing thing that could happen to a guy. Well, that or being in Blake Griffin‘s way on a fast break. But Brandon Jennings has upped the ante. This video is from Dyckman Park in New York, where pro/am games run in…

  14. Video: Michael Beasley can’t guard Kevin Durant

    Aug 5, 2011, 8:31 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Dallas Mavericks - Game Two

    We bring you one last bit from Dyckson Park in New York City Thursday night. That’s the place that brought you Michael Beasley being a fool and Kevin Durant being a little slow on the help defense rotation and paying the price. Here is Beasley trying to guard Durant (and Beasley gets no help defense).…

  15. Video: Kevin Durant gets dunked on in New York City

    Aug 5, 2011, 2:43 PM EDT

    NBA basketball player Kevin Durant of Oklahoma City Thunder is greeted by fans as he arrives at a commercial event in Guangzhou

    Everyone, we’d like you to meet Geoff Mcdermott. East Coasters may remember him playing for the Providence Friars, you will now remember him as the guy who dunked on Kevin Durant at Dyckman Park Thursday night. To be fair, KD rotated over late and there wasn’t much he could do. The fact he rotated over at…

  16. Report: Lakers Barnes hits opposing player during game

    Aug 5, 2011, 10:38 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v San Antonio Spurs

    Move over Michael Beasley, you’ve got company. There are multiple reports that in a San Francisco pro-am game Thursday night Matt Barnes hit an opposing player during the contest. Sam Amick of Sports Illustrated tweeted about it, there were other mentions on twitter and Black Sports Online told us they heard the same thing from…

  17. Fan shoved by Beasley calls him a “bad sportsman”

    Aug 5, 2011, 10:18 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley remains a class act. The 6’10” forward pushed a fan in the face at Dyckman Park in New York City Thursday night, during a game between Beasley’s team and a Kevin Durant team (Team Nike, actually, and the shoe giant marking folk were there filming). The New York Daily News writers were there,…

  18. Michael Beasley pushes fan in face at exhibition game

    Aug 5, 2011, 1:38 AM EDT

    Michael Beasley

    Big time organized streetball games are rowdy. Loud and raw. The crowd is into it, and not in the polite, golf-clap way a lot of NBA games can be when the rich folks are close to the court. This is real. And there will be hecklers. Just ask Kevin Durant. One of those hecklers was…

  19. Report: Timberwolves Beasley arrested for marijuana possession

    Jul 6, 2011, 3:28 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    Oh, Michael Beasley, just when we think you are getting another chance and maybe getting things together. Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley was arrested for marijuana possession and speeding in Minnesota last week, according to NBC 11 KARE in Minneapolis/St. Paul. Beasley was pulled over on June 26 for speeding around 3 a.m. on Interstate 394…

  20. David Kahn wants Andrew Bynum for the #2 pick

    Jun 21, 2011, 11:09 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum, Marco Belinelli

    There has been widespread speculation that the Timberwolves are looking to trade the #2 pick in this year’s draft, because projected #2 pick Derrick Williams is a small forward/power forward and the Timberwolves already have Kevin Love at the 4 and Michael Beasley as a tweener 3/4, which Williams projects as. Anyways, David Kahn would…

  21. Report: If Wolves draft Williams No. 2, Beasley moves to trade block

    Jun 6, 2011, 12:26 PM EDT

    New York Knicks v Minnesota Timberwolves

    It is known around the league that Minnesota will trade you the No. 2 overall pick if you are willing to send them a veteran big man in return. Problem is, in this draft nobody really wants to give up a decent veteran big man for what they can get at No. 2. If things…

  22. Did Andrew Bynum learn anything from 2-game suspension?

    Mar 25, 2011, 4:03 PM EDT

    bynum-suspension

    Andrew Bynum faced the media on Thursday, the first time he’s done so since the league handed him a two-game suspension for the flagrant-two foul he committed last Friday against the Timberwolves’ Michael Beasley. Bynum repeatedly said how the play was “just a hard foul,” and that if Beasley didn’t get hurt or leave the…

  23. Lakers Bynum suspended two games for flagrant foul

    Mar 20, 2011, 2:46 PM EDT

    Andrew Bynum

    Andrew Bynum’s flagrant foul on Minnesota’s Michael Beasley has led to a two game suspension by the league, one of the harshest penalties this season. We told you about Bynum being ejected Friday night, and he deserved to be tossed. Bynum was late on his rotation (not that Matt Barnes did a lot to slow…

  24. Andrew Bynum ejected for flagrant foul on Michael Beasley

    Mar 19, 2011, 4:55 PM EDT

    bynum-flagrant-beasley

    Midway through the fourth quarter of the Lakers tougher-than-expected win over the Timberwolves on Friday, Andrew Bynum was called for a flagrant two foul for the contact he made with Michael Beasley. L.A. was up one with a little over six minutes remaining, and Beasley blew by Matt Barnes on the perimeter, drove baseline, and…

  25. Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley and the importance of pre-draft interviews

    Feb 3, 2011, 11:20 PM EDT

    080626-derrick-rose-vmed-5p.standard

    When we talk about draft picks we discuss athleticism, outside shot, basketball IQ, college success, vertical leap and the other things we as fans can see and measure. But maturity and passion for the game and the craft matter more in how a player develops. Competitiveness matters a lot. We can’t measure it, and a…
