Michael Beasley hung 30 points on the Rockets in late November, but Michael Beasley is not a reliable rotation player. Michael Beasley can score one-on-one against almost any defender you put in front of him, but Michael Beasley is on a one-year, $2,116,955 contract. If he is in the NBA next season, it will almost certainly be with a different team. New York ought to enjoy him while they still can, and the Knicks ought to extract every bit of eccentric genius that they can possibly coax out of him. It’s hard to say how much that will be. It’s easy to see that, after all these years, there’s still a great deal of it in him.
