Michael Beasley Should Stop Making Predictions

These things have a way of coming back to haunt you, Mike: “Beasley said some remarkably foolish things Tuesday about how the Charlotte Bobcats ‘stole’ a game in Miami and that if his team showed up focused Wednesday, ‘it should be an easy win.’ Easiest win in Bobcats history – a 104-65 laugher that completed a 6-0 homestand. The victory also moved the Bobcats (21-19) past the Heat (21-20) and into fifth place in the Eastern Conference. Yes, Beasley’s quotes to South Florida media were passed on to the Bobcats by the coaching staff. It would have been nearly impossible to miss them, considering the leafleting in each player’s cubicle. ‘I kind of laughed at that, smiled over it. But it was in the back of my mind the whole game,’ Bobcats point guard Raymond Felton said of Beasley’s boast. ‘Maybe he didn’t mean it the way it sounded, but it definitely pumped us up.”’

    The Heat stink right now. They should tank the season and pray for John Wall. (btw, i’m a little pi$$ed right now, maybe i’ll feel differently a bit later… or may not)

    @Cheryl- Should the Suns pack it in for the season, since they’re 6th in the Western Conference?

    Well, if millions of dollars doesn’t motivate them to try hard, I’m glad something does.

    Now thats the kind of Nba ball i like to see, old school vengeance type ball. Similar to what PJ did to the Lakers last week before the rematch against the clips. (“payback” written on the dry erase board). These guys play so much ball in a season only a few of them can keep that edge for the entire 82 games, any added motivation is a bonus. Larry Brown is doing a great job down there. As for players predicting wins/outcomes, well Mo Williams knows all too well how that ends up
