Via the Star Tribune: “Did you see Beasley walk forward after missing a free throw in each of the team’s first preseason games, tilt his head and glare at the rim? Well, here’s the story: ‘That’s a college job,’ said Beasley, who played one season at Kansas State. Luis Colon was my college center. He’s a big Spanish guy and when big Spanish guys get mad, they start speaking Spanish real fast. Every time he missed, he’d look at the rim and curse the rim out. So every time I miss, I’m trying to get the gremlin off the top of the rim.’”
