Knicks forward Michael Beasley believes that “talent-wise,” he’s on par with LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

In an interview with Bleacher Report’s Yaron Weitzman, Beasley said that getting in trouble early in his career prevented him from getting a fair shot.

“[It’s] mostly perception. As far as talent-wise, I match up with Kevin [Durant], LeBron, I match up with the best guys in the world,” Beasley says.

 

“I’m not being cocky; it’s just always how I felt. But I got into trouble as soon as I got into the NBA, and it left a bad taste in a lot of people’s mouths.”
