After 10 years in the NBA with Detroit, Orlando, and Charlotte, Jason Maxiell is plying his trade for the CBA’s Tianjin Gold Lions. In yesterday’s game, Maxiell took a hard foul from Shandong center Wu Ke, and he was not happy about it. Exit Wu.
As a second overall draft pick, Michael Beasley was mostly a bust. He showed some ability to score but little else, and was frequently doing JaVale McGee-esque knucklehead stuff on the court, and getting in trouble (mostly for smoking weed) off of it. Last year he spent a season in China before finishing out the NBA…
At one point early on in The Offseason: Kevin Durant, that HBO reality show aimed at getting its star better endorsement deals, walking brand Kevin Durant flies some of his buddies out to Los Angeles, where they intend to stay for the summer. We're introduced to Childhood Friend Cliff Dixon, Manager & Childhood Friend…
The Shanghai Sharks' Big Three of Michael Beasley, Yao Ming, and Delonte West is the best Big Three that ever was.
Last week, Brice Plebani stopped by the Seat Pleasant Activity Center in Prince George's County, Md., to drop off a graduation invitation.
It's Tuesday, which means we were about due for another Michael Beasley arrest.
Scottsdale (Ariz.) police have confirmed that they're investigating a sexual assault claim against 24-year-old reclamation project Michael Beasley. The incident reportedly took place on Jan. 13.
Remember that time when Michael Beasley was single-handedly destroying the entire sport of basketball at Kansas State and was obviously going to be better than everyone in the NBA in like three years and probably the next Scottie Pippen, except better than him, too? Never happened.
Tipster Tyler C. alerted us to this wonderfully vivid mental image tweeted (and since deleted) by Michael Beasley. Beasley has indicated that his account was hacked, but who knows for sure. I suppose it's possible some rapper really wants the word out that Michael Beasley is a big fan and doesn't mind that Beasley is…
Sorry, Anthony Tolliver.
In the context of today's injuries, this one's relatively tame—but Michael Beasley's "Oh shit! That's my bone!" reaction to a finger injury (reports say it was a laceration, one patched up with a few stitches) is priceless.
Michael Beasley is one of the few NBA players who might actually manage to be more interesting when he's not playing professional basketball. Since the NBA lockout began, he's been cited for speeding and for marijuana possession, and he "mushed" a heckler during a game at Dyckman Park in August. This man needs a…
There are known hazards for NBA players considering playing a year in China: they might not let you out of your contract if the lockout ends, and you could always get hurt, like Michael Beasley apparently did on Monday. But one of the things they don't tell you about is the omnipresent clouds of smoke that hover over…
We learned a new word today: mushing. A mush is when a person puts a hand directly onto another person's face and pushes him or her backward. Minnesota's Michael Beasley "mushed" a heckling fan at New York City's Dyckman Park last night. The incident is not expected to help his job security.
The 2011 NBA lockout is a mere six days old, which means that we are way past due for a report of a league player getting cited for possession of marijuana. And now that I mention it, we are also (and always) way past due for a report of Michael Beasley getting busted for possession of marijuana — ideally by way of a…
The following is an excerpt from High Times magazine's story "Pot and the NBA," found in the December issue of America's favorite dank rag. Super Cool Beas, indeed.
