Michael Beasley has apparently decided to check himself into an unidentified rehab hospital in Houston, Texas. This sounds like one of those Vince Young type of drop offs from college players who could do no wrong and score at will, to entering a league were all the players around them are as good if not better.
I'm bouncing back and forth on how to feel about this situation. I mean on one hand, I do feel sympathetic for the guy. He obviously is having some type of pscyhological and potential substance abuse issues going on in his life. BUT on the other hand, this kid is a millionaire and doing something he obviously has loved doing since a child. He is essentially living the dream that I and the other writers of this blog dreamed of doing our whole lives. Beasley needs to realize that he's not the biggest, tallest, fastest player anymore. This isn't highschool basketball or even college. This is the best of the best players in the world. So get your head straight and put in the hardwork that players such as Kobe Bryant, Lebron James, even your teammate Dwayne Wade have to get to where they are today.
