That Michael Beasley; he's so crazy! On Thursday evening, Beasley, Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka were all at Dyckman Park for some kind of exhibition game. Ibaka and Durant were playing for a Nike sponsored team while Beasley was on the other side of the court in a battle of NBA stars. As you can imagine, the game was a serious draw, with fans packed into the park to catch a glimpse of the NBA players in attendance. But what began as a fun game turned into the Michael Beasley show, and not in a good way.
It was all well and good until Beasley got tired of being heckled and "mushed" a fan in the face. Take it away, Stefan Bondy.
Not-so-bright Michael Beasley was bothered by heckling from a spectator. Beasley walked up and mushed him in the face. "I get paid to do this." Beasley was shouting at the spectator before the incident. It stopped play for about 10 minutes
I have no idea what mushing is, but I'm going to assume it's a face-push.
Even better: Bondy said Nike cameras were there documenting Durant. If this means we'll get to have video of Beasley screaming about getting paid to play ball before going after a fan, I'm willing to shell out money for this documentary, or whatever Nike was making.
