Beasley checks into rehab

According to Yahoo!'s Adrian Wojnarowski, Michael Beasley has checked into rehab… with some encouragement from the Miami Heat.

It all stems from this photo of Beasley's new "Supercool" tattooThe photo touched off a controversy because of what looked to be bags of pot on the floor.  The controversy let Beasley to take down his Twitter account… but not before sending out these 3 tweets:

  • "Y do I feel like the whole world is against me!!!!!!! Back on my FTW!!!!! I can't win for losin!!!!!!!!!!"
  • "Feelin like it's not worth livin!!!!!!! I'm done"
  • "not feelin this at all!!!!!"

That's not encouraging at all.  Phrases like "the whole world is against me" and "Feelin like it's not worth livin" are beyond obvious red flags.  The rehab might not be for marijuana use as much as it is for getting Beasley some mental help.

We had fun with his tats and what seemed like a stupid mistake of letting pot sneak into the photo… but this has taken a serious turn.  I hope Beasley gets the help he needs.

    A young man clearly not ready for the world he’s in. 4-years of college would have helped.

    This whole Beasly saga runs in perfect contrast to the Bill Walker article you recently wrote. Both guys have talent, but one got injured, had to work his ass off to be a part of this league, and now is a level-headed young man. The other has had a lot of things served up to him on a platter, and now he can’t handle whats going on around him and he’s mentally unstable.

    Futhurmore, Walker and Beaslu were teammates and friends.
