Michael Beasley Says He Stopped Listening to Coaches

Michael Beasley is playing some of his best basketball of the season. The key, according to SuperCool Beas, is not listening to anyone in his circle (including Phoenix Suns coaches.) Per the AZ Republic: “Beasley finished with 25 points, his second best total of the season, and his fourth consecutive double-digit scoring game, matching his season’s best streak. ‘I just stopped listening to people,’ Beasley said. ‘I’m doing what I know how to do. That’s really it. The more I listen to people, the more I got to think about. So, at times, it messes me up when I’m trying to think about a thousand things at once. I just stopped listening to people and just started trusting my instincts again.’ What people? ‘Everybody,” Beasley said. ‘My friends, my family, my teammates, the coaches.’”

    @ 76/hr and making 18487 in a month that makes 243.25 hours which divided by 30 (most consistent days in months) makes her work 8.10833… hours a day.

    I know this is spam but its not even convincing

    Not a trailblazer, but Beas is definitely blazin’.

  • roscoe

    beasley cares & I really believes he wants to succeed.

    Accepting what your coaches say vs. listening to your coaches is two different things.

    I think everyone agrees that MB being put on the end of the bench was lame.

    trade him to somewhere he can play, he has talent.

    SLAM won’t let me voice anti Lebron statements that aren’t trolling yet they allow this sh*t

  • DeeDre

    I don’t agree with him fully but i definitely understand his point. Coaching CAN be overrated. You need to understand that he still became an NBA talent despite going through a different coach in middle school, high school and college who pretty much let him do “his own thing”. NBA coaching takes more of a handle on there team because they’re not afraid you’re going to leave the program

  • Max

    That’s a great thing to say Beas..

  • danpowers

    rich kids… smh

  • AndyK415

    There are multiple stories from people within the Wolves organization about Beasley having such bad ADD anyway that coaches would be explaining a play to his face and not even 10 seconds later (while they were still talking) he would be turned around looking at some other stuff.

    He’s had that “null and void” gaze about him since day one!

  • tktuff
