Knicks forward Michael Beasley not only thinks he’s one of the best players in the world, he wants to prove it.

In a story by ESPN’s Ian Begley, Beasley said that although he’s not paid like a star, “the ball will tell you who the best players are.”

Beasley is quick to respond when asked why he’d turn down more than $10 million guaranteed to play in New York.

“Money doesn’t always define basketball,” Beasley said.

“Yeah, I want a lot of [money]. But I want to prove that I’m the best. The ball will tell you who the best players are, not the contracts, not the media.”
