Michael Beasley finally went one toke over the line and the NBA threw up its collective hands. After numerous chances from a variety of teams to prove he could contribute in a meaningful way the league gave up. Miami gave Beasley a shot to contribute to a contender last season but let him walk after the season due to “inconsistency, lack of trust in his defense, and maturity/focus issues.”
This season Beasley is playing in China, but his history here stateside is still haunting him.
The woman accused Michael Beasley, who the Suns waived in September 2013 following an arrest for marijuana possession, of stripping her clothing, choking her until she was unconscious and repeatedly sexually assaulting her, according to court documents….
The woman claims that she and a friend went to a Scottsdale home that Beasley shared with a friend on Jan. 13, 2013 and that Beasley and the other man “physically overpowered, restrained, grabbed and groped,” the woman, according to court records. The lawsuit also states that the men “stripped her clothing from her, repeatedly choked her into unconsciousness, and repeatedly sexually assaulted and raped her.”
Beasley’s representatives have not commented on the incident.
Scottsdale police investigated this incident back in 2013 but did not file charges.
The one thing I would be sure about is Beasley’s NBA career is done. Before this likely, but it only adds to the reasons no team will go near the former No. 2 pick.
