Watch Michael Beasley Shove A Fan In The Face (Video)

Michael Beasley doesn’t exactly have a squeaky clean resume, but he did appear to turn things around during the 2010-11 NBA season, when he averaged 19.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game with the Minnesota Timberwolves.  And while many saw his breakout season as a giant step forward for the former second-overall draft pick, it appears as though he has now taken a giant step backwards following an altercation with a fan during a basketball game at Dyckman Park in Manhattan.

Beasley’s 914 squad was taking on Kevin Durant’s Team Nike when reports indicate that several fans in attendance began heckling the T-Wolves’ forward with comments like “You’re a f**king bum” and “You ain’t sh*t Beasley!”  This irked Beasley to the point where he confronted one of the heckling fans, saying “I’ve never been a bitch … I’ll show you that right now,” before shoving him in the face.  Cooler heads would eventually prevail, as Beasley found the fan at the end of the game and shook his hand.

I can’t help but think that if Durant, Beasley and the rest of the NBA stars continue to provide us with off-season highlights like they have thus far, maybe a lockout wouldn’t be so hard to swallow after all.
