Michael Beasley Dropped Some A+ Stoner Logic When Pressed On The Lakers' Expectations For Themselves
We have all been there. By "we" I obviously mean anyone that has shared a dingy off-campus college house with a roommate who had an iron lung for some half-baked botany, and by "there" I mean sitting on the couch next to him/her after returning from sleeping through some low-level lecture with one eye open.
Most of time the ensuing conversations resulted in non-sensical drivel that reminded you that your mind wasn't anywhere near altered enough to entertain the disjointed rumblings of the spaciest of cadets. For example...
Those rare instances, however, in which either dumb luck or a creative thought process led the faded philosophizing of a stoner into the type of payoff that made humoring a high person totally worth it. For example....
For all his warts as an intellectual, Michael Beasley basically dropped the mic when he responded with "...the future". I'm honestly shocked that the reporter kept pressing for some purposeless playoff prognostication when it was clear that he had already gotten the perfect response from the imperfect source. That was more of a touche-esque cue to press stop on the recorder than Michael Beasley grabbing said recorder and trying to MacGyver a one-hitter out of it, so the fact that it went down hill from there is a indictment of the media member and no one else.
Anyway, it's pretty clear that it's going to take a lot more than playing next to LeBron James to get Michael Beasley to play in the mud of premature predictions...even if MUD is the nickname given to him and his more, shall we say, eccentric teammates by LeBron James...
