Mike’s dad opened up about his son’s troubling situation: ‘It went from being fun to a job now,’ his father said of the transition from being the No. 2 overall selection in the 2008 NBA Draft out of Kansas State. ‘So I think the demands of playing 82 games, making appearances, I think is taking a toll on him. I was surprised, because I didn’t know that it was to this extent.’ He also mentioned the impact of the birth of his single son’s first daughter, Mikaiya, who was born in May…While Michael Beasley Sr. said he has yet to speak with his son — ‘He can’t have visitors or can’t nobody talk to him right now’ — he attempted to clarify perceptions that his son was involved with recent marijuana usage.”
