Michael Beasley: "I'm not Tito Jackson"
Michael Beasley wants to be clear on this: His name is not Tito Jackson, and he would like TNT analyst top refrain from saying so. Barkley, the outspoken NBA analyst and Hall of Fame player, has referred to the Miami Heat as Michael Jackson (that would be Dwyane Wade) and a bunch of Titos, Michael's brother and a background member of the famed Jackson 5 singing group. What Barkley really means is the rest of the Heat is comprised of relative unknowns. "It's just disrespectful," Beasley said. "Not disrespectful to Tito Jackson. The way Charles worded it, it makes us feel a little disrespected."
hes not tito jackson hes latoya jackson like comon hes been a total dissapointment da heat hav given him all da chances 2 develop at his rate n b effective n hes inconsistent wit da use he needs 2 shut up n just work n his game stop talkin 2 media n do wat he did n kansas state ( n i hope it wasnt smokin mary jane lol)
Should feel bad he is nothing what i thought he would be and that is all do to lack of effort
i honestly don't think he would go top 5 if that draft was done over. I would take rose, westbrook, lopez, love, mayo, and gordon all ahead of him.
if draft was done over he would wind up being a mid to late first round pick, I think hes just a product of da one and done nobody talks about da result one n done does wit vitale overhyping dese diaper dandies 2 make money 4 da ncaa just like conley n oden n cook
wow dude is in his second year and yall on him like that. He has the ability and give him time to work that into game situations.
Wow people are very critical of Micahael Beasley here. Lets not forget this guy cant even legally drink yet. He is in his second year in the NBA and he's averaging about 16 ppg and 7 rpg...I know there are alot of teams that would take that kind of production. Thats pretty solid numbers for a 2nd year player. He would not get out of the top 10 in a redraft situation...people are just being irrational.
Is the guy a dominant force? No. Does he have alot to work on still? Sure, what 2nd year player doesnt. Can he develop into a really good player? He sure can, hes got alot of talent.
Everybody knew he was a headcase in college so the work ethic cant suprise people, but he will improve still.
The guy is in his 2nd year!! Give him a break.
He is more like RICK JAMES. Im Micheal Beasley &$#%#&@!!!! ok maybe he is more jermaine jackson
I think he would play better if Wade wasn't on his team
I don't think he tries as hard when Wade is in the game
He shoots to much from the perimeter. If he gets a better post up game and drives every once in awhile, he will be ateast a 20-22ppg and 8rpg guy. He is a lethal midrange shooter and can extend to 3(which will get better the longer he plays). Yes, he has been semi disappointing and yes you can make a case he could fall out of the top 5 if that draft was redone. But the guy is 20 years old in his second year gettin 16 and 7. He does seem like he doesnt try at times too. But just watching him play even at the NBA level, when you see him make a move or pull up for the 18 footer you just say to yourself this guy is special. In terms of raw NBA ability he is just as good as almost anyone. He just needs time to put it together(again this is if HE wants too, if he works hard he is the second best player in that draft, IMO).
he will be top 5 PF in 2015..remember me after five year lol
