Michael Beasley: "We are the team to beat"

Since moving to Minnesota, according to his general manager, Michael Beasley has supposedly given up his old habits. And by "old habits," I think you know what I mean.

But then he goes and says something like this which makes you think maybe he hasn't.
"Honestly, and I know a lot of people are not going to like that fact that I'm going to say this but I think we are the team to beat," Beasley told Timberwolves.com in an interview. "You know, that's just me and my ego speaking. I think the Lakers are the defending champs two years in a row, I think the Lakers still hold that title. It's nice to see somebody try to fight back but as of now, the Lakers are still the team to beat."
So you are the team to beat, but then you're not? You have to admire Beasley's confidence though. And as a player, why shouldn't you think your team will be good? It's not very fun to go into a season admitting you're going to stink. But even despite egos and confidence, most people still have some sense of reality, something Beasley evidently does not.

But on one hand, you have the Timberwolves writing open letters admitting they aren't going to be winning anything important any time soon, then on the other, a player is saying they're the best team out there. One of those left hand doesn't know what the right is doing sort of things, huh?

Say it again with me just for fun - Minnesota Timberwolves: the team to beat in 2010-11.

Michael Beasley: "We are the team to beat"

I saw Beasley on KSt and he´s a fighter so in Miami he was too party to play so even that issue he´s 15 & 7 not bad for a laisy boy, now as a TWolve I give the benefit of the doubt and with young guns like Love, Darko andn Flynn we have a new team on the spotlight, maybe!

Unfortunately I am a Minnesota native and T-wolves fan. I know he gave up "weed" but whatever he is smoking, let me get some. Love the attitude my man, but lets get real. Teams to beat do not have student nights for $5 a ticket for lower level. People only go to T-wolves games to watch the other teams. Let's go Heat!

Since his pretty good career at K-State, Beasley has been an absolute joke in the league. What an idiot this guy is, WOW! 


You must not watch to much basketball there Chiefsfan. Beasley hasn't been spectacular since he got drafted but a joke? Only if your talking off the court. On the court he's averaging close to 15ppg and 7rpg pretty good for a joke!

Yes, and David  Kahn is the executive of the year. Sure. And just look at that roster to see why! Beasley, Darko, Flynn, Love..and...um...who else is on the Timberwolves again?

Maybe he didn't pan out how he was expected. Derrick Rose had a better situation. he went to an orginazation where he was the 'man' the moment he got drafted.

Beasley went to a completly different team where D-Wade was obviously the guy. So he didn't get a chance to shine like Rose did. Now with the T-wolves he will be the 1st option scoring.

Give the guy a break, so he smokes pot, he is 21.. when you were 21, did you guys smoke pot? haha

HE still holds carreer averages of 15 and 7 rbs per game. Half the players in the league wishes they could average 15 and 7 a game.. I will say it again.. he is ONLY 21, he has 3 years under his belt in the nba.. while most people are just entering there senior year of college.. just hoping  to get a shot in the nba.

I find it funny how people like you, and all these other guys say he sucks.. He is the multi millionaire here.. not you!

HE IS ONLY 21!

I really never thought that this could actually be done, but this freaking guy has literally smoked himself BEYOND DUMB. In regards to the Timberwolves, I actually think they are worse off with this pothead. Since his pretty good career at K-State, Beasley has been an absolute joke in the league. What an idiot this guy is, WOW!
