Almost all of this difference comes at the defensive end, as the Suns possess a superb 95.0 defensive rating when he sits and an abysmal 114.7 rating when he plays.
To put that in perspective, the Suns without Beasley would be the best defensive team in the NBA but they are the worst by seven points per 100 possessions when he’s on the floor, which is a pretty wide margin that covers the difference between the No. 11 and No. 30 defensive teams in the league.
Night after night he is crushing any hope this team has of winning games. The guy is as bad defensively as anyone could possibly be, and on offense he currently rates as among the worst players in the league right now. And he just had a quote in the paper the other day where he claims his defense is fine and that no one on the team is clearly outplaying him. Not only is he awful but he is exceptionally stupid. The coaches are telling him his defense is costing him PT and he rather plainly ignores them.
This offseason a lot of you didnt believe me when I said Beasley is a truly horrible player, I was not exaggerating. The guy is wretched. If anything I understated how bad he is.
