GorillaBeas Is On A Swarm..... To Minnesota!


PSA: SupercoolBeas?.... Drugs Aren't Super Cool!

Well, looks like Minnesota came out the clean side last night, with Micheal Beasley being trade to the Minnesota Timberwolves for a 2011 and 2014 second round draft pick! This will now open up cap space for the Miami Heat eying on Mike Miller and more room to sign LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh in the superteam they have assembled down in South Beach. For Minnesota, it sounds real nice that we basically got the man for nothing, right?

My question is could Minnesota snap him back to reality after questions about his mental strength! His intangibles have even gotten worst once he got into the NBA with the marijuana incident in the NBA Rookie Transition Camp with Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur or the twitter post when he contemplated suicide with a picture of what appeared to be marijuana in the background which led him to soon checked into a Houston rehab center a couple of days later! Also, it wasn't like these problems just came to him since being drafted. He had these problems too in high school and this problem was a main issue coming into the 08 draft after some called him immature!





What I'm wondering does Kurt Rambis have a bit of the Zen Master in him that he may have conjured up in Los Angeles while being an assistant coach to the Lakers two years ago. This could foretell to me if he could be a great coach in helping Beasley work his road to redemption!



He started all 78 of his games last season and we now know that he cannot play small forward as you see from our friends from 82games.com!

These are Beasley numbers from what position he played this season!

This shows a lot about how Beasley will coincide with Kevin Love, who'll probably be the starting forward once Big Al moves!

Possibly the best movement involving Minnesota, Michael Beasley for a ham sandwich (2nd round draft, and a future swap of first round picks!)
