Michael Beasley punches himself in the head, gets treatment

Postby revgen on Fri Oct 11, 2013 3:58 pm

Michael Beasley is pretty hard on himself sometimes. Beasley received his first minutes of playing time and he was great. He scored nine points in his first five minutes of action and was diving on the floor and doing things coaches generally like to see out of players trying to make a roster. Of course, Beasley also did something a little odd after one offensive play. Upset with himself over missing a shot, Beasley started punching himself in the head while running back on defense. He punched himself so hard that he needed treatment after the game from the Heat's trainer. Steel compresses (like the ones cut doctors use in boxing) were applied to Beasley's brow in the locker room.

He's going to break out this year. The Heat came up big time with getting him back. A year under Riley and Lebron will do wonders for his career. Beasley knows this is his last chance and he's not going to let it slip away because of some dumb weed issues.

He just beat himself in the face.

It's true. No one EVER chooses weed over a successful career.

He hit himself in the face because he was upset for making a mistake on the court, so he's taking things a little bit more seriously this time around. A pothead definitely would not punch himself in the head over a basketball mistake. I wouldn't :pipe:

Keep this post bookmarked and by the end of the year you'll see Beasley be a major contributor to the Heats' 3-peat run.

Man... the guy is just crazy. He hit himself in the head until he hurt himself. That's what he does when he's sober and off drugs. That's not good. He needs to go to a mental health clinic.

ESPN- The medical treatment Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley required after a preseason game against the Detroit Pistons wasn't for a self-inflicted punch, the team said Friday.

Beasley needed treatment to reduce swelling above his eye following Thursday's game against Detroit, and reports initially said the reason was that he struck himself in the face out of frustration for mistakes on the court.

Beasley said Friday he did hit himself as he ran back down the court during the third quarter of the win.

But Beasley, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra and team officials said the wound above Beasley's right eye was the result of an inadvertent blow he took from Pistons forward Jonas Jerebko as he attempted to block a shot in the third quarter, not from a self-inflicted punch.

"I watched the video, and it does look like I knocked the mess out of myself," Beasley said before Friday's preseason game against the Charlotte Bobcats at the Sprint Center. "I had everybody in the world calling me and asking, 'Why you so crazy?'"

Beasley finished with nine points Thursday in his first preseason appearance since he rejoined the Heat on a nonguaranteed contract this summer.

Beasley was back in the lineup for Friday night's game, scoring 13 points in 19 minutes. Miami was without guard Dwyane Wade, who decided to sit out and rest his knees instead of playing for the second time in as many nights.

The Heat originally drafted Beasley second overall in 2008 out of Kansas State, but he was traded after two seasons as the Heat shed salary to lure LeBron James and Chris Bosh to Miami to join Wade.

Beasley then had three disappointing seasons in Minnesota and Phoenix before he was released by the Suns in August after struggles on and off the court.

Beasley said Friday he doesn't need to cause any distractions or draw any negative attention to himself in his second opportunity in Miami.

"I'm coming into a delicate situation," Beasley said. "It's not pressure, but it is a little more to think about. I don't want to be the reason the ship falls. I'm definitely taking it more serious than my first two years."


He obviously knows the situation he's in. Beasley will be fine.

Speaking of crazy people hitting themselves:

He's such a talented player, if he can stay focused on what he does on the court, training and playing basketball the Heat have them a jewel.
