Michael Beasley Was In The Room With Darrell Arthur And Mario Chalmers When They Were Busted For Marijuana
NBA, Dumbass

Perhaps The Concerns About Michael Beasley Were Warranted

There were a lot of questions about Michael Beasley's character heading into the 2008 NBA Draft. Does he take the game seriously? Will he be one of those guys who spends more time smoking blunts than shooting jumpers? Does he have the necessary level of maturity to succeed?

In the end, it didn't affect his draft stock, seeing as he went #2 behind Derrick Rose, and Rose was certainly a worthy #1 pick. And the fact that the Miami Heat, who have South Beach at their disposal, were the ones who drafted Beasley suggests that they believe Beasley can make it.

Well, they may be less sure about that today.

It seems that Darrell Arthur and Mario Chalmers, the two Kansas teammates and dumbasses who decided to smoke weed and bring women up to their hotel room during the NBA rookie camp (that specifically teaches you how to avoid those two things) also had another friend in the room with them.

Michael Beasley.

Interestingly, a story today in the Kansas City Star says that ESPN originally reported that Beasley was in the room, but then pulled his name from their article. Because obviously Beasley was just minding his own business in a room full of women and weed. Tucked away in the back corner, no doubt. Right.

The Big Lead said someone locked themselves inside the bathroom and kept flushing the toilet while refusing to let police open the door. No one knows - except the police - if that was Beasley or not. Hey, whatever works. Either way, Beasley hasn't gotten in any trouble for this.

Although, I think the worst thing is that the first time I heard there was potentially a third player in the room with Arthur and Chalmers, I instantly thought of Beasley.

Good luck Miami Heat. He's a hell of talent, but man oh man, would I ever be worried.

And by the way, why exactly did ESPN pull Beasley's name from the article? I'd love to hear their explanation on that one.

If I could have given you funny twice I would have.  I'm sitting here laughing my a$$ off...

I actually read the original article on ESPN and saw that Beasley was in the room too and didn't think much of it after that.

It definitely doesn't surprise me that Beasley was in the room with them though.

I just got finished reading all of this, and the first player that I too thought of was Michael Beasley.  Not good.  Not a good way to start a career.  Not a good way to earn your team, or teammates respect.  They are all idiots.  They could have waited until the symposium was over.  I thinks its kind of funny that Chalmers and Arthur are not calling out Beasley (at least not yet).  Stern sure enough called them out in his first speech to all the rookies.
