    Michael Beasley

    Does anyone else feel sorry for him? The kid is a great talent. He did the right thing by sticking with K State when Huggins left. He gets there and has a high school coach as his head coach. The players around him are not to good. He just looks so frustrated out there. Tonight he scored 39 of his teams 74, grabed 11 boards and it wasnt enough. KSU had no other scorer that had double figures or over 5 rebounds. One player cannot do it all.

    Agreed. Although I do feel sorry for him because he went on Sportscenter before the game talking about how much he loves Spongebob Squarepants, so you know upcoming student sections will be making fun of him for that. Except Cyclone Alley, I'm sure they are way too classy to single out one player for liking a little kid's show.

    Re: Michael Beasley

    Well, KSU hired an assistant coach especially for him, I think he's pulling through.

    He knew what he was getting into in Manhattan.

    Re: Michael Beasley

    Michael Beasley cares about Michael Beasley and nobody else.

    How disruptive does a guy have to be to be kicked out of 5 high schools in 4 states because of his immature and disruptive behavior? (He went to a total of 6 high schools in 5 states). The guy carried his teams to incredible records at every school he was at, yet they all kicked him out without any known criminal activity.

    He will play out his year at KSU then become yet another self-absorbed pro basketball player.

    Here's a good read on him from the Washington Post from his senior year.

    Re: Michael Beasley

    Anybody know more about what he actually did to get kicked out of those schools? I haven't worked in education long, but I do know that it takes a ton of paper work to actually kick a student out of school - unless it is something VERY wrong....... now my interest are peaked.

    He is at those schools on scholarship, so I am guessing all they have to do is not invite him back. It really sounds like immiturity more than being a bad kid. Most of the things he gets in trouble for are playfull...

    Re: Michael Beasley

    i liked him before i read that article, but i cant stand kids like him. they think everything should be handed to him, and never think they should have to grow up. the sad part is, he probably wont have to. this is why i think kids should have to be 21 or graduate college before they go pro in any sport.

    Re: Michael Beasley

    How can u feel sorry for him. He's amazing at basketball. He's gonna make millions. He's gonna take his team to the tournament. Doesnt sound too bad to me. I mean he gets to play basketball for a living. If u are already really good it doesnt sound too bad of a job

    Re: Michael Beasley

    He did the "right thing" because after he signed a LOI he would of had to sit a year, hard to showcase one's talents on the bench. Staying at KSU will be very profitable for Beasley.

    The guy is a freak and will be the easy #1 draft choice next year. He is the perfect NBA forward. Maybe the best player in the draft since LeBron.
