(If Beasley wasn’t high in this interview, I’ll eat my foot.)
David Kahn thinks there’s a perfectly good reason that Michael Beasley underacheived in Miami: He was high all the time.
“He’s a very young and immature kid who smoked too much marijuana and has told me that he’s not smoking anymore, and I told him that I would trust him as long as that was the case,” Kahn said Thursday during an interview with 1500 ESPN Twin Cities.
“He has developed a really good support system around him this past season in Miami. He’s hired people to help him grow up. He is growing up — he’s not grown up. He’s 21 … and he just turned 21 last January, and if you think back, as I do all the time, to when I was 21 and if you had given me this kind of money and put me in this kind of world with these kinds of pressures attached to it and some of the demands, I don’t know (that) I would have handled it any easier than, say, he has.”
Don’t worry, guys. I know the player I just traded for does way too many drugs. But he told me he’s done with them. So seriously, no need to worry.
Because if David Kahn wouldn’t have handled it any easier than Michael Beasley has, then nobody could have handled it any easier. Can you smell what the Kahn is cooking?
