Michael Beasley Is Obviously Still Getting High

September 17, 2010 – 2:55 pm by Ryan Phillips

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley has had well-known issues with the hippie lettuce in his past. Obviously those problems can’t be completely in the past though.

During an interview with Timberwolves.com Beasley told Jonah Ballow the following:

“Honestly, and I know a lot of people are not going to like that fact that I’m going to say this but I think we are the team to beat.”

Ummmm…please Michael, continue…

“You know that’s just me and my ego speaking. I think the Lakers are the defensing champs two years in a row, I think the Lakers still hold that title. It’s nice to see somebody fight back but as of now, the Lakers are still the team to beat.”

OK, I’m confused. Who is the team to beat, the Lakers or the Timberwolves?

More to the point, Michael, are you f-ing crazy?

Dude, set your goals a little lower, like, I don’t know, a playoff berth?

What exactly makes you think a team that went 15-67 last year is the “team to beat?” I mean aside from the kind bud you’re obviously huffing.

You’re referring to the same franchise that since going 44-38 in 2004-05, has put together consecutive records of: 33-49, 32-50, 22-60, and 24-58 before last season’s aforementioned 15-67 abomination.

So Minnesota hasn’t won more that 33 games since 2006. In fact, they’ve progressively gotten worse over that time.

What major move did the T’Wolves make to improve so much? You know, aside from acquiring you, one of the most disappointing top two picks in NBA history?

Hey they re-upped Darko Milicic for four years and drafted Wesley Johnson. The also added Sebastian Telfair. Maybe the signing of Greg Stiemsma has Beasley really excited. Or what about the addition of Kosta Koufos in exchange for Al Jefferson (the team’s leading scorer last season) has Beasley thinking big things.

Or, more than likely Beasley is just getting high. A lot.

Or he’s completely delusional. If so, let’s hope the men in the white jackets treat him kindly and that his cell has extra padding.

  5. What a stupid post! Obviously, Michael Beasley was joking when he said the Twolves were the team to beat. He said as much when he said, ACCORDING TO YOUR OWN ARTICLE, “You know, that’s just me and my ego speaking.” Except, wait! His comments were broken up by the author of this redicilous article in order to make Beasley seem “high” in order to create a story for himself to write about. Why don’t you just make stuff up and report it as something that actually happened to you? It would be the same thing as this trash. How does this crap get allowed up anyway?
