From the people who brought you Hedo Turkoglu’s pizza and Rajon Rondo’s sushi and Gatorade comes Michael Beasley’s pregame meal. It’s too early to tell, but this looks to be a vital addition to the franchise.

From the NBA.com:

As Michael Beasley slammed a chicken tenders basket at his locker about 90 minutes before his Phoenix Suns were to face the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday, he seemed more pleased with the savory french fries than digging up the past yet again.

“These fries are good, man,” Beasley said between shoveling handfuls of the greasy goodness into his mouth.

And how did he play with that belly full of fried food? Not too well, surprisingly.

After rifling through the chicken finger basket and dressing for the game while rapping out loud the inaudible lyrics streaming through his headphones, Beasley managed 12 points on 4-for-10 shooting and four rebounds. He recorded a team-worst minus-17 in 20 minutes and the Suns lost for the 30th time in 45 games.

Let’s just file this stuff — that Michael Beasley isn’t big on nutrition and loves snacks, that it is hard to play professional basketball well with a stomach filled with fried stuff — under “Things We Could Have Guessed About Michael Beasley.” It’ll fit in nicely with “thinks you can only sprain your ankle once” and “likes Afros.” It’s a short list, but it’s very accurate.

  1. And to think that this guy was actually in the conversation to be drafted #1 overall ahead of Derrick Rose

    • Sushi would have me churnin’ during a game…also anything Odom snacks on..

    • About Jerry Reinsdorf’s meeting with Beasley before the draft:

      “During the session with Beasley, there were a couple occasions in which (one of) his (two) cell phones went off. Believe it or not, he answered the calls!

      New head coach Vinny Del Negro advised him that he was meeting with the owner and that, at that time, there couldn’t be too many things more important than listening to what Mr. Reinsdorf had to say and answering whatever questions the people at the meeting had of him. When Reinsdorf posed the question, “What about college basketball bothered you most?” Beasley contemplated for a moment and said, “When you go on the road and the referees make bad calls.”

      When it was Rose’s turn in front of the brass, he sat up straight and was totally focused. He had a thorough grasp of the magnitude of the encounter. He put his ego aside. Consider this is a guy who won back-to-back state titles in high school and went 38-2 in his only season in college, dropping the national championship game in overtime. His answer speaks for the kind of guy Derrick Rose is and why he’s destined for (even more) greatness. What was his response to Reinsdorf’s question, “What about college basketball bothered you most?”

      “Losing.”

  4. Two years ago, a local news station did this hilarious, must-read “4 Things You Don’t Know about Michael Beasley feature. This is the very first one:

    1. My favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities is McDonalds. I order two cheeseburgers, two snack wraps with no sauce, two fish fillets with cheese and light tartar sauce, two large fries, two apple pies and one large milkshake.

    Sounds like not a lot has changed. Seriously, read the other 3: http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2011/03/09/4-things-michael-beasley/

    • Ha… That’s was an awesome read… It’s like a “how to plead insanity in any future murder charges” instructional video…

  5. I really always wondered how he gets through the drug (Weed) test in the nba?

  6. Chicka filet needs to sponser the suns if that fatty fried chicken keeps the L’s coming!

  7. What’s next? The entire Kings team taking pregame trips to Pizza Guys with Isaiah Thomas?

  8. Trey, wasn’t this your pre-game meal in high school? If it worked for you, it can work for Be-Easy.

  9. We had a French dude on our team who would eat a waffle loaded with butter and ice cream for his pregame. It was actually pretty awesome!

  10. Man, I can’t believe I thought this dude was gonna be a star

  11. Will micheal beasely be the next Shawn kemp?

    • how dare you, at least shawn kemp was awesome before he got fat^^ beasley is doing stupid stuff straight up, without the actually playing well part. fat shawn kemp was kind of cult-y, fat michael beasly will just be some fat weirdo. which is also kind of cult-y, but more in a sad way. but I guess he’s chillin so it’s okay.

      (btw if you didn’t mean fatness but were talking about The Reign Kids… then yeah probably he’s going to be one of the next shawn kemps)
