• In a candid interview with the New York Post, Michael Beasley claims he is done taking the criticism and ready to be the player he was in college.

    “I’ll bring what they saw in college. I just need the opportunity to show that. Look at my nine-year career, I’ve always been close to a point a minute. I’ve always been a walking bucket. Nobody can stop me, hasn’t stopped me my last nine years. Every time I’ve touched the ball, the defender’s scared. I’m at the point of my career I’m just tired of not getting the acknowledgement of being who I am.”

    He averaged 26.2 points, 12.4 rebounds, 1.3 steals and 1.6 blocks his freshman year at Kansas state before being selected second overall by the Heat. Obviously, no one is expecting that type of production, especially since this will be his tenth season in the league with his sixth different NBA team. However, if Carmelo Anthony is traded, the Knicks will need to get offense from somewhere other than Kristaps Porzingis and Tim Hardaway Jr.  Beasley was actually recruited by Kurt Rambis, who coached him on the Timberwolves in the 2010-11 season. This was Beasley’s best season in the NBA as he averaged 19.2 points and started 73 games. He IS a very efficient scorer but doesn’t shoot many threes or provide much in other categories. He may be worth taking a flier on in the last few rounds at the very least… If Melo is traded of course.

    In unrelated Beasley news, apparently someone stole his car on Friday.
