Mike's the man, I hope he gets all this sorted. He needed the Heat to come out and say he was their future this summer along with Wade, but not to my knowledge Riley didnt do that, then he goes and does this..times must be rough.

This.

The article eludes to some potential suicide type comments he made on Twitter, and whether or not he was doing it for attention. You dont make or say comments like that unless those thoughts have come across your mind.

Everybody has had thoughts about killing themselves, but when you think into those thoughts and say it outloud whether jokingly or serious it is a cause for concern.

Im fine with him smoking weed, its allowed during the offseason.

However weed + depression(or whatever hes going through) can lead to something very unfortunate for himself or someone else. Theres a huge difference between casual smoking and drug addiction, obviously he must feel hes crossed the line.

Yes.

But thats where it ends in terms of 1st Round Picks from 08'.

Mayo>Beasley
Gordon>Beasley
Lopez>Beasley

Thats as far as I would go.

The report didn't mention that he is going to rehab in an attempt to meet Amy Winehouse since she could probably set him up with a solid cocaine dealer.

He's depressed because he nor the Heat can't figure out what friggin position he is able to play......




all jokes aside, his a bone head, a bafoon, a clown and a douche but i hope this can be a moment of clarity for him so he can focus on his game, maturity and focus. Get it together kid and come back and prove your doubter wrong.................seems a long shot but for Wade & Miami's sake i hope he does.

In that picture, it looks like there's a couple of spoons on the floor too.
As far as I know, Weed doesn't make you depressed and suicidal. Sounds like he's got other demons.

Going to rehab for weed, what a joke. I would have liked it to not have to come to this, but if the heat management sees this as the most logical course of action, then so be it. I just hope Beasley learns his lesson and manages to come out on top at the end of all of this.

The article does seem to imply that Beasley is either depressed or suicidal because of the stuff he wrote on his twitter after the picture was released and this whole mess had unfolded. I saw those messages before but didn't really think much of it. I mean, he possibly had a baggie of pot. It's not that big a deal. I didn't think it would affect him that much. Although that's just speculation from the article after all.

Hes probably using cocaine, thats the typical party drug for people with boatloads of money.

btw hes in Miami, The Cocaine Capital.

Its possible he is addicted to weed, some guys can have that addiction take control of their life although you wont OD like with other drugs.

You think playing professional sports is a great job?:confused:

Hes young, hes using drugs, and is probably going through some emotional issues. Better off he gets help now rather than have it pushed aside as minor until something bad comes about it.

I cant help but think about Eddie Griffin when I think of this with Michael Beasley. He has to get it together NOW to avoid following down the same path that Griffin did.

I know I will probably get shouted down for this but here goes:


As a former, 7-year chronic user, I can tell you that the idea that weed isn't bad for you or isn't addictive is a complete scam perpetrated by people who want to rationalize their use and weed culture generally.

If I were a coach, GM or teammate I wouldn't want a pothead on my team. Smoking weed makes you more confused and sensitive, it makes you more involved with with what's up in your head than with what's going on outside it, just what you don't want when you are performing. (and that's just some of what it does) I generally assume that half the time "low B-ball IQ" is a euphemism for pothead, unless the guy seems genuinely dumb. And I don't believe for a second that NBA players who smoke don't smoke in the season, they just find away around the testing (if they are smart).

As far as it being addictive goes, I went through an intense month-long withdrawal when I quit cold turkey. Old-school thinking may call that 'psychological' but it sure seemed like something was happening to my body to me.

It's just common sense, if you put something in your body on a daily basis it's going to change your body chemistry. Don't be fooled!!

It obviously hurts when you have half the world bashing you on the internet critizing you making you look like a moron. When you have this image or idea you want to portray and its instantly scrutinized, it rearranges your reality a little bit. It sucks that hes been admitted to rehab for weed of all drugs because thats lame when half the NBA does it and hes singled out. Albeit, he did take a picture with it so he can only blame himself. If i were an NBA player, making millions of dollars, i would tattoo the cookie monster on my back and write something like supercoolcookies for example and half the world can kiss my azs. The only people that give a damn are the ones wasting their lives away critizing something permanent. Get a life. These negative posts are the main reason hes being admitted into rehab and he is depressed because he feels like the world is coming down on him and for something that to him may not even have been worth 2 minutes of his time. And i dont understand how him screwing up here equates to him being worse of a BASKETBALL player than Brooke or Love... Beasly still is better than Rose. Dont tell me Rose doesnt smoke. Since when is a gang affiliate, not involved in that sort of lifestyle? Nerds...

Wow, never want to hear a story like this!

Even though he beat my National Champion Jayhawks, I still have an ounce of respect for his work ethic, he was a beast, IDK anymore though!

If any player drated/signed admitted themselves into rehab, as a GM, i would easily restructure their contract and have the player receive less money, they are slowly slipping away when rehab is in the future, IMO

Obviously most NBA players aren't the brightest. Look at Rose cheating on the SATs and having grades changed. Look at Mayo being a 21 year old freshman in college.

Without getting too personal, yes i do know a little bit about depression. IMHO a lot of it is giving into mental and emotional insecurities. Believe it or not when it comes to some types of depression you actually can man up and fight the feeling. Putting down the bowl is a good place to start i guess.

Man up? Are you serious? Realize you have no idea what the guy is going through so I wouldn't be so quick to tell a guy to "get over it". The guy is in the spot light and all he's hearing is how he should be doing this on the court and what he needs to work on..ect ect. People can only hear so much about how bad they play basketball. Noone knows how they would react unless they were in that situation. I'm not saying that because people think he's a terrible ball player but rarely do people talk about a players strengths. Look at Lebron James. I hear more about the fact he needs to work on his jump shot than about him being the most dominant player in basketball. People have a breaking point. Some people can just hold themselves together better.

At least the guy is trying to get help. Instead of jumping on the guy for doing it how about congratulating him for getting the help he needs. Its a public embarrassment yet he's doing it to help him out mentally.

The guys what? 19 yrs old? He's still a kid, Miami has a huge fan base. It's not hard to figure out that it all could be over whelming at times. Just because a guy makes millions doesn't make everything better. I think it's such an ignorant statement when people say just because he makes good money, everything should be ok.

But that's just my opinion.

Yeah that looks fun, now image living that life while suffering from drug addiction &/or depression.

We tend to think these rich athletes should be happy, but unfortunately thats now always the case. They are human beings just like me & you.

btw i dont think its just weed. i hope so tho for his sake.. but imo he's not gonna have the career he was expected to. he wont live up to his potential either. i called it last year. miami should have traded him or the pick when they couldnt get rose. wade wants to win NOW.. not wait for beasley. they should have traded him to team like charlotte for wallace and felton

i wasnt talking bout the drug addiction part. that was his choice and his mistake, that doesnt come with being a highly paid athlete. his situation sucks. i feel bad for him. but with that aside. theres no way u can tell me that playing in the nba is not the best job in the world if ur a basketball lover.

oh n i agree with u. miami is my 2nd fav team but come on heat fans. rose OWNS beasley. as a person and as a player. i would cheat on my sat too if i was dumb and it was the only way i could stay in uni to make it to the nba lol. (iduno if that was the case.. i didnt even look into that whole d rose article. cuz i dont care) im not watching him play ball cuz he's a nice guy. i dont wanna marry the guy so why should i care? im watching him cuz he is skilled

Beasley has more potential than a lot of the rooks from the 08 draft. I wouldn't say he's better than any of the top five right now though. More explosive than a few? Yes. More consistent? Naw.

Being a Wolves fan, I heard a bunch of stories about Eddie Griffin and he ended up dead. Like someone said earlier in this thread, it reminds them too much of the Griffin tragedy.

He's gotta get back on the right track because when he plays at his best, it's a joy for every NBA fan to watch. Hopefully he gets better and hopefully the drug isn't anything more than just some marijuana.

there are a lot of idiotic posts in this thread. PSD's average age (at least intelligence-wise) is really showing here.

only in this place would we condemn a player for admitting to himself (and, because of his status, the world) that he has a problem and for trying to take care of it.

he's a hell of a basketball player and i wish him the best.

08-24-2009, 04:13 PM
Does Beasley want for people to feel sorry for him? Does he thrive for sympathy? Why else would he post that he wants to commit suicide on his twitter page. He needs to grow up and be a man. There is alot of people out there with far worse problems. He has a pretty bright future laid out in front of him and he should realize that.

Believe it or not when it comes to some types of depression you actually can man up and fight the feeling. Putting down the bowl is a good place to start i guess.

if you knew about depression you would certainly know that clinical depression has nothing to do with emotional and mental insecurities. it's a chemical imbalance in the brain. marijuana doesn't cause it.

feeling blue one day and being insecure isn't a sign of depression. it's a sign of being human. if he's having problems with depression just "manning up and getting over it" doesn't help.

The guys what? 19 yrs old? He's still a kid, Miami has a huge fan base. It's not hard to figure out that it all could be over whelming at times. Just because a guy makes millions doesn't make everything better. I think it's such an ignorant statement when people say just because he makes good money, everything should be ok.

But that's just my opinion.

lol this is actually funny to me. Not that I dont want beasley to get better, and I hope for the best for him but the fact that his breaking point was basketball? You work all your life to be the best in basketball and the pressure finally got to him? This is almost as funny as VY wanting to quit the Titans and commit suicide because he cant handle the pressure.

You know what most peoples breaking point is? Not being able to put food on the table, put a roof over your head, and take care of your kids.

This makes him weak...Mentally weak.

If this kid had a daughter, made 15k a year, and couldnt provide food and shelter, then he broke down, I would understand, but when you are making millions, smoking weed, getting dumbass tattoos, getting caught, then saying oh I cant do this anymore because he got caught makes him a dumbass.

You know why he broke down? Because he got caught. You know why he checked himself into rehab? Because he got caught.

Call me an ******* I dont care but this is my opinion.


Regardless of what I think of Beasley, get clean, and come back strong next year.

To all those HEAT fans saying you're building a franchise around Wade and Beasley - think again. Now we know why Wade was pushing so hard for Boozer and Odom - he knows Beasley isn't the real deal. I'm so glad the Jazz didn't trade Boozer for Beasley after all. Nobody wants to pay some immature kid anymore especially in this economy.

How could you feel bad about someone who is obviously mentally weak? Not mentally handicapped, he deserves whatever he brings on himself. The guy makes millions to play a kids game, he needs to man up and get over it.

Maybe he's mentally weak when it comes to basketball but it's hard to tell from his rehab situation. He choose to share something about his personal life through twitter and he got ridiculed for it. I feel sorry for him for that. He's relatively innocent. It's not like he has personal problems that he wanted to work through by getting behind the wheel and endagering other people's lives like JR Smith or Eddie Griffin. Beasley's a 19 y/o kid, not used to the spot light who would have been better off keeping his personal life private. Getting paid millions doesn't mean that he's not capable of making mistakes.. and the mistakes he made are understandable. I feel bad that he's getting so much negative attention for it. If the guy is on suicide watch.. I'm not sure if he is.. but that's pretty serious.

I normally don't agree with Draco but he just put this whole situation into perspective

Beasley needs to be cut some slack, he's just a kid who is entitled to a few mistakes. Hopefully this whole situation just teaches him a lesson and makes him a more well rounded person

I called it when he was drafted he is a hyped up power forward that plays like a SF. Can anyone say Marcus Fizer? Reality has set in. He has probably been the man at every level and know he has been hit with a bit of adversity and sees that it may not be as easy as expected. The pressure know becomes do I step up and work hard in the off season to raise my game or can I just get away with my athleticism? This fork in the road decision is heightened by the outside pressures. Your family, boys, and children that you have to take care of thought would be straight now realize that you are just a piece in a larger puzzle and if you don't do something you could be out of the league after 3 yrs. And if you think that is far fetched look at your boy Marcus Fizer, Jay Wiliams, Dejuan Wagner, and others. Life is very short when something you have done for your whole life may come to an end sooner than you think. That would make any person depressed!

It obviously hurts when you have half the world bashing you on the internet critizing you making you look like a moron. When you have this image or idea you want to portray and its instantly scrutinized, it rearranges your reality a little bit. It sucks that hes been admitted to rehab for weed of all drugs because thats lame when half the NBA does it and hes singled out. Albeit, he did take a picture with it so he can only blame himself. If i were an NBA player, making millions of dollars, i would tattoo the cookie monster on my back and write something like supercoolcookies for example and half the world can kiss my azs. The only people that give a damn are the ones wasting their lives away critizing something permanent. Get a life. These negative posts are the main reason hes being admitted into rehab and he is depressed because he feels like the world is coming down on him and for something that to him may not even have been worth 2 minutes of his time. And i dont understand how him screwing up here equates to him being worse of a BASKETBALL player than Brooke or Love... Beasly still is better than Rose. Dont tell me Rose doesnt smoke. Since when is a gang affiliate, not involved in that sort of lifestyle? Nerds...

Holy **** on the hypocracy. So Rose doing gang signs makes him affiliated to GD. COOL. Rose "cheated" on the SATS...so hes sucks in basketball COOL. Beasley is better then Rose....Only a Miami Heat Fan would say this.

Do you know how many people have been bashing Rose since the SAT scandal and gang sign? Probably the same amount of people that are bashing Beasley. You know what the difference is? Rose doesn't care, he comes out, apologizes, and says the right things. You know what Beasley does? Checks his *** to rehab for suicide watch....

Whose more mentally prepared for the NBA? A guy who knows he made a mistake, apologizes, and moves on or a guy who goes to rehab for suicide watch?

And you think Beasley is better then Rose? LOL.

Let me tell you the difference between Rose and Beasley. Rose made mistakes before he got into the NBA, while Beasley is making mistakes NOW.

And the world coming down on him? You dont think Rose felt the same when all you heat fans were bashing him and calling him stupid and how he cant pass the SATS? Man, talk about hypocracy.

Its ok to bash Rose because he was stupid in the past but its not ok to bash Beasley because hes stupid now.

Remember my man Marcus Fizer was on a team with Elton Brand, so the numbers thing can kind of be skewed. Also, realize that Michael is playing with DWade and he can't even beat out an aging Udonis Haslem for minutes. He can score, but in the L who can't score, if given the opportunity and playing along side one of the all time great creators in the game in DWade. He was exposed as a guy who doesn't like to play in the post, or can't and is just a jumpshooter.

Not sure how that happens since Rose has a lot less issues to resolve. When Beasley becomes a full time starter and demonstrates that he can handle the PF or SF position or both.. then I'll re-evaluate his potential. Right now, Rose's potential is far greater.. imo.

Beasley apologized for his role in what happened at rookie camp but the fact remains that he didn't cooperate with the investigation. There was something about him possibly being locked in a bathroom flushing weed down the toilet. So I'm not one to give him credit for just talking the talk.

With that said.. I still think Beasley doesn't deserve so much of the negative attention he's been getting. Hopefully he can get his life and career back on track.

Are you talking about on or off the court issues? Off the court both of them are shrouded in controversy right now, but on the court Beasley has been probably the most versatile scorer to come out of the 2008 draft (sorry OJ). The sky is the limit for him insofar as basketball skills.

On the court of course. Beasley has a lot of positives about his game and so does Rose. Rose is probably the most athletic PG to come out of the 2008 draft. You can't really judge one aspect of the game to be more important than the other in a vacuum. Rose was able to translate all of that talent into a ROY winning regular season and record tying Game 1 in the post season. I have to go with Rose having more potential.

Beasley didn't apologize. He checked himself into rehab. If you're talking about the apology for the marijuana probe, I didn't even know (or remember) he apologized for that, so I wasn't talking about that.

You cannot get addicted to weed. It does not have addictive properties. People use weed habitutally. Obvioulsy riley wanted him to stop and therefore asked him to go to rehab. If its just weed and no other drugs, then people are blowing this out of proportion.

Depression is something many people go through and is often caused by a chemical imbalance, so being a millionaire with lots of fans won't cure it. sometimes rich famous people get depressed. Its no biggie. Not the end of the world.

So hes going through some problems, this don't mean he aint a g and that he isnt going to ball this year. Riley encouraged him to got a place so he can deal with his issues and stop smokin weed for abit to clear his head for a bit and get ready for the season. Beasley is gonn have more haters than ever now. but hey if he gets 35 mins a game he will average 20 and 8.

You wouldn't apologize for breaking NBA rules during the NBA rookie transition program, a program that was suppose to teach him the exact thing he broke rules on?

maybe if i was forced to by nba regulations to keep my job, but otherwise, no, i wouldn't, because i disagree with the law that's in place already.

and again, how is checking himself into rehab a sign of not growing up?

Wouldn't getting the help he needs be a sign of growing up? Hopefully, he is the one realizing he needs the help and isn't doing this just to please Riley/Heat. Otherwise, it may not really take.

This isnt funny anymore, this is starting to look like a tragedy beginning to unfold.

:facepalm:

Where are the Heat fans to continue to defend Beasley's actions?



He is a drug addict, just like so many other people who live in Miami. I mean, come on people is this suprising? Look at the culture in Miami. Really look at it.

:cool:

Exactly, this better be HIS choice, and hes not just doing it because Riley is telling him to. But I think this is the first sign of him actually growing up, but lets see where it goes from here.

From what I understand, hes been in a drug program with the league, since he got busted with Chalmers last year, and with this surfacing, it shows me that he was wasnt serious about the program during the year, but hopefully, this is a wake up call and he actually takes this seriously because if he ****s up again.......who knows where his career will go.

Yeah that looks fun, now image living that life while suffering from drug addiction &/or depression.

We tend to think these rich athletes should be happy, but unfortunately thats now always the case. They are human beings just like me & you.

Wow @ the Heat fan who claimed Rose is a worse human being than Beasley for not taking his SAT and being in a dumb picture, and Beasley is a better player than Rose. Wow @ Heat fans on here.

+1,000,000 at everythig you wrote.


There are three types of posters so far. Those who try to be understanding (wow, well at least he's gettig help. Good Look MB) the knowledgable ones (like above, depression guy, and chronic user (lol sorry)) and finaly, Heat fans (just for weed, that's bogus. How does this ruin any of his career, Riley just told him to go to rehab for weed, he is still better than Lopez and Rose).

I'm just glad the most of you can read into this more than "this shouldn't affect his minutes."

I think it's sad Michael Beasley gets hated for having serious problems. I mean, I'm no Heat fan and I'm no Beasley fan, but why should I hack him for being human ?

If people would read the sources more carefully they would understand, that Beasley has serious mind problems. Weed might be a factor to make those problems worse but, this guy needs serious, professional help because he has things in his mind which are way bigger problems than smoking a blunt or two.

This whole thread is a really sad and awkward read (except some posters) ...

This.

The article eludes to some potential suicide type comments he made on Twitter, and whether or not he was doing it for attention. You dont make or say comments like that unless those thoughts have come across your mind.

Everybody has had thoughts about killing themselves, but when you think into those thoughts and say it outloud whether jokingly or serious it is a cause for concern.

Actually,
it's a psychological need for attention. The fact is, that people who say out loud that they are going to commit suicide almost never do it.
Its the quiet ones, from who you don't expect **** like that and who don't say anything about it, usually do it.
Several studies confirm this.

Good post.
Its easy to judge; hard to understand and sympathize. Maybe Beasley just can't handle the pressure and attention that comes at the highest level. Everbody's got some sceletons in their closet.. So i hope that he gets over the hump and puts his incredible talent in the right place

"I talked to some people and Mike wasn't using marijuana," he said. "I think whoever took that picture was using it or had it in their presence and he was just getting a tattoo. From my understanding, he wasn't getting high or he didn't test positive for no drugs or anything.

"Whose place he was in giving the tattoo, that was theirs. I believe him that it wasn't his, because he passed his urine (test) and everything, so that was just something that somebody else had."

It has been confirmed, however, that the Heat forward was placed in the NBA's substance-abuse program a year ago after an incident at the league's rookie symposium that led to a $50,000 fine.

So no weed issue...It's pressure and depression from the responsibility of his new daughter.

It could be weed and alcohol, weed (and alcohol really) give you good feelings but too much of them..say everyday..they can become bad depressants. Based on his twitter responses this could have been the case, I mean who tweets those to 1000's of people?

smh who cares if he does weed, many athletes smoke weed. even the beloved lebron smoked weed and many other great athletes..


whats worse?
smoking weed?
or having psychologic/mental/depression problems?

i doubt most people care about the weed part to be honest, just his mental issues

If you look through the thread dozens-hundreds of posters have said **** about having a weed issue...I don't care, I smoke myself. Just looking to clear up the facts...

I agree with the depression thing obviously, just trying to clear up the misconceptions in the thread...

Beasley's in an "unidentified rehab hospitial" but it doesn't need to be identified to know that you don't go to a rehab for treatment of just depression.

Beasley's dad might be correct about the weed in the photo but I don't think that means there's no weed issue.

ESPN reported the Heat asked Beasley to check himself into the rehab for possible "substance abuse and psychological issues"

Chris Broussard reported that "people close to the situation" are saying it's not really a psychological issue..

All we know that Beasley's "substance abuse and psychological issues" were serious enough for him to go into rehab and that's about it.

Maybe it's alcohol, but I think the fact that he passed(s) the test(s) indicate that that's not an issue. I suppose it's possible though, I just have never heard of anyone checking themselves into rehab for weed only unless it was very serious.

And if he's passing the random tests given on the substance abuse program for the NBA, that indicates to me that he doesn't have a very serious weed problem anymore.

Alcohol+depression could be the reason.

PR relations+depression could be the reason.
