Artest Not Impressed By Beasley

November 21, 2010

Following the Lakers 112-95 win in Minnesota, Ron Artest provided commentary on Minnesota’s forward (and possible comeback player of the year) Michael Beasley.

From Pioneer Press:

Michael Beasley scored a game-high 25 points for the Timberwolves in their Friday night home loss to the Los Angeles Lakers, who got five points from the guy who guarded him, Ron Artest.

But Artest wasn’t impressed with Beasley.

“Beasley should watch (Miami star) LeBron James,” Artest said. “Beasley’s actually a better shooter than LeBron, but the smarts are not there. He’s talking so much trash instead of worrying about the game. He needs to become a winner.”

How’s that?

“It’s just the way you play, his awareness on the court; somebody should have told him,” Artest
said. “He should learn to pass, who to pass to, how to attack to make his teammates better. Then he’ll be super tough.

“But I’m the last person who should be talking, because I’ve got to guard him.”

Artest said Beasley needs to learn another move on the court.

“He’s so athletic and quick and strong,” he said. “But eventually somebody’s going to catch on to it.”

Beasley, told of Artest’s single-move comment, said, “The reason I do the same thing is because they can’t stop it. As soon as they stop it, I’ll do something else.”
