Remember when it was the “Michael Beasley or Derrick Rose?” debate for the No. 1 pick. (Russell Westbrook ended up the brightest star out of that draft, but at the time taking him fourth, in front of Kevin Love, was seen as a reach.)
Michael Beasley is playing for the Knicks this season on a minimum contract, and he’s scored pretty well for them off the bench — including dropping 32 on the Celtics and their elite defense.
He had the hot hand Thursday — and he believes in the hot hand theory. After the game, Beasley was asked how long he’s had the hot hand.
