Michael Beasley: ‘We’re the Worst Team in the NBA’

Technically, Detroit, Houston, Philly, Charlotte and the Clippers are all tied for the worst record in the L. But why let facts get in the way of a good quote from Mike Beasley? From the Pioneer Press: “The word ‘Professional’ was written in large letters on a chalkboard inside the Timberwolves’ locker room Saturday night. Somebody must have written it after the Wolves’ demoralizing 109-89 loss to Memphis at FedExForum. Before the game, the board was filled with a checklist of items to remind Wolves players of their responsibilities. Whatever game plan Wolves coach Kurt Rambis had intended was never executed, prompting claims from Rambis of a lack of professionalism in his players and an alarming assessment from a frustrated Michael Beasley. ‘I feel like everything we’ve been working on since training camp went out the window tonight,’ Beasley said. ‘As of right now, we’re the worst team in the NBA.’”

    Beasley said. ‘As of right now, we’re the worst team in the NBA.’”
    No kidding. The worlds not flat either Mike.


    That was a super cool thing to say.

    he tells it like it is

    Seriously, I hope he goes for about 40 tomorrow in Miami. I think the Wolves will keep the game close too. Love will probably out-think Anthony and outwork Bosh to get about 18 rbs and keep the team close that way. Heat 103 Wolves 94.

    But I thought they were the team to beat!!!?

  • Reflex

    Contenders to worst team in the span of 3 games. Welcome to the bipolar world of Michael Beasely.

  • EtheKnickfan

    Mike? You do know this is “the league” not rec league right? At the end of the season they dont give all participants a trophy.

    Word to NDP…

  • MikeC.

    At least he’s being honest and saying “we” and not “those other guys in the Wolves jerseys”. Teams can’t correct their flaws until they’re pointed out. SuperCoolBeas as a team leader. Who knew?

  • http://www.slamonline.com Myles Brown

    Reflex — the Heat were anything but contenders last season.

  • LeBron de Con

    My gawd, I somehow got slimmed with Myles Brown freaky deaky ID. Make it stop!!!

  • Zetnom49

    @Eboy……………… Kill yoself for that comment.

  • nolan

    @Myles Brown – Beasley said the T-Wolves were the team to beat at some point during the preseason.

  • T-Money

    E: Beas going for 40 on Bron? Minny scoring in the mid-90s vs Miami? Are you on drugs?

  • T-Money

    I mean.. BOS and ORL didn’t get to 90. ORL barely got to 70, for that matter.

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com Seth

    I don’t think the L-Wolves are that bad really, but if the team has Beasley’s attitude they’re going to be bad.

  • http://www.slamonline.com Eboy

    They’re going to take them for granted….and I have a feeling that the Wolves are going to play well.

    -They have worst G.M./Coach combo in the league is why
    Kahn (giving away Jefferson, drafting Flynn over Curry, Overpaing Oden in summer of 2011) Rambis(your best player play gets only 25 min a game, REALLY!!!?)

  • Martey

    This kid is bipolar. He’s like Rodman without the good.

  • Cizzo

    Damn B Easy, the season just started…..

  • http://www.wimp.com/selfteaching/ Toni Kukoc

    nah, they just have the WORSE COACH IN THE LEAGUE

    ez fix

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    Wasn’t it only a few weeks ago Beasley said it was them and the Lakers to beat?

  • http://www.slamonline.com/ niQ

    I have a recommendation for the coach for them to improve. PLAY KEVIN LOVE MORE THAN 25 MINS!

  • The Philosopher

    I was never all of that enamored with Rambis as a coach, anyway.
    Still very, very early, though.

  • http://www.need4sheed.com Tarzan Cooper

    L wolves do what they do, pile up the ls

  • http://www.hoopsvibe.com/features/overdribbling chiqo

    so kahn was right.

  • http://www.slamonline.com NickthaQuick

    A great coaching move for Rambis would be to sit Anthony Toliver for tomorrow’s game. Pretty sure Lebron would like to re-introduce himself to Toliver and make his acquaintance.

  • IHaveADream

    Some coaches are just better being assistants…

  • JTaylor21

    Bron will have a very hard time deciding on whether to dunk on Toliver with one or two hands.

  • rapsfan43

    Didn’t know Be-Easy got traded to the Wiz. Dang they look awful

  • http://bassbesteck@wordpress.com Bassbesteck

    Kurt Rambis would be a pretty cool Name for a Wrestler…

  • The Philosopher

    ^^^Or an adult film actor.

    Kurt Ram – “bone”.
    I’m on another roll tonight.

    Good job Sherlock.

    lol @ Lebron de Con…that is happening far to often lol

  • http://slamonline.com Brad Long

    He must be out of weed.

  • JimmyGood23

    Earth to Beasley… Didn’t they tell u that they traded Garnett and Marbury before they traded u??? Just between me and u… i think that boy slow!!! lol. I don’t even watch the Wolves in League Pass. Why would Beasley think they had a shot if they lost their best player and got Miami’s worst player???

  • Galagu

    must be too many gremlins on the rim still.

  • Feez22

    David Kahn pretty much wrote a letter to the fans before the season started saying they weren’t going to make the playoffs. Beasley just took that statement up 5 notches. Kahn as your GM + Rambis as your coach+ Darko making 5 mil this yr + Love playing 25 mins + mike Beasley as your apparent leader saying you are the worst team in the L= total organizational failure. Downsizing couldn’t have come @ a better time… Bye timberwolves.

  • rob

    maybe they wont be the worst if kevin love actually got some more burn


    can’t sugar coat something that is obvious.

  • Danno

    If this clown thinks his team is the worst in the NBA he has yet to see the 2010 Clippers. Makes you yearn for the good ole days of Mike Dunleavy……

  • ClydeSays

    He talked himself out of that ‘contender’ hype real quick…

    A lot of of the things you assert is astonishingly legitimate and that makes me ponder why I had not looked at this in this light before. This particular article truly did switch the light on for me as far as this particular topic goes. But at this time there is actually 1 point I am not necessarily too comfy with and while I try to reconcile that with the central idea of your point, allow me see just what all the rest of the readers have to say.Nicely done.
