Michael Beasley likes to speed, and get caught with marijuana.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward, Michael Beasely, was cited for speeding and possession of marijuana on June 26 in Minnetonka, Minnesota. Beasley was doing 84 mph in a 65 mph zone, and during the same stop, he was cited for having over a a half ounce underneath the front seat of his car.
Beasley said the the "assassin of youth" was not his, but it actually belonged to a friend of his whom he had just dropped off at his respective home.
Beasley has had problems with ganja in the past, and run-in's with the law are nothing new to this former Miami Heat and Kansas State star. When the T-Wolves acquired Beasley from the Heat just about a year ago, Minnesota GM David Kahn had this to say about his newest acquisition:
"He's a very young and immature kid who smoked too much marijuana and has told me he is not smoking anymore, and I told him I would trust him as long as that is the case."
Well, David Kahn, looks like Beasley betrayed your trust; now, what are you going to do about it?
The Timberwolves used the second overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft on a PF (very similar to Beasley) Derrick Williams out of Arizona. With a back log of forwards that include Kevin Love, Anthony Randolph, Wesley Johnson and Brad Miller. With yet another problem with law enforcement, Beasley could be shown the door sooner rather than later.
