Michael Beasley to Host ‘All-Star Classic’ in a High School

by October 12, 2011

Michael Beasley’s big exhibition game — be sure to check out the amazing website for the event — will take part at Osseo High School next week. Of course it will. Reports the Star Tribune: “They can’t get into Target Center these days, so NBA stars John Wall, Joakim Noah and DeMarcus Cousins are among those expected to play in Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley’s ‘All Star Classic’ at Osseo High School — of all places — next week. Beasley’s Wolves teammates Derrick Williams, Wes Johnson, Martell Webster, Wayne Ellington and former Wolf Sebastian Telfair are scheduled to play as well in the Friday night, Oct. 21 exhibition game. So, too, are Boston’s Jeff Green, Detroit’s Greg Monroe, L.A. Clippers’ DeAndre Jordan, Chicago’s Keith Bogans and Beasley’s longtime pal, former Dukie Nolan Smith … The web site says all net proceeds will go to Beasley’s foundation that benefits St. Jude’s and three Minneapolis charities. Vikings running back Adrian Peterson and former Lakers star Norm Nixon, who has been working out Beasley and mentoring him this off-season, will be celebrity coaches.”
