Relax, Michael Beasley. Kick back, you know, do some stuff. B-Easy.
No need to get this upset for a travel call. No need to get this upset after scoring 9 points in Thursday night’s 112 t0 107 win over the Detroit Pistons. No need to get this upset in a preseason game.
After getting called for a travel with about 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter, Beasley took to hitting himself in the head as a way to express his frustration.
From Joseph Goodman of the Miami Herald.
“Upset with himself over a mistake, Beasley started punching himself in the head while running back on defense. He punched himself so hard that he needed treatment after the game from the Heat’s trainer. Steel compresses (like the ones cut doctors use in boxing) were applied to Beasley’s brow in the locker room.”
I can’t say I’m surprised, and this is one of the advantages of Beasley signing with the Heat. A strong locker room should help calm Beasley down and instill more confidence in the former No. 2 overall pick.
