Did Michael Beasley Stop Snitchin’? What Would ‘Melo Do?

Updated: September 19, 2008

The main stream headlines read, Beasley fined $50,000 for involvement in Rookie Transition Program incident [ESPN.com], saying that NBA Rookie, Michael Beasley, “originally failed to cooperate,” but “eventually chose to reveal that he was part of the incident.”

What incident you say? Well, you should know as it’s been covered here: NBA FanHouse (Matt Moore), and here: Hardwood Paroxysm (Ron Mahoney), with photos here: The Big Lead.

Basically, the blogosphere has used the NBA more than doubling the fine of Mario Chalmers and Darrell Arthur for Beasley to deduce that he was hiding in the closet, most likely kicking it to Method Man and Redman, and acting like a horny teenager….sounds like a fun party, except the wrong place, at wrong time.

Beasley tried to keep his involvement under wraps, but facing David Stern carries more consequence than facing an AAU coach, high school principal, or even parents. The Commish is going to hit that pocket book….or most likely in Beasley’s case, a Sponge Bob wallet attached to his jeans with a chain.

Did Beasley snitch on Arthur and Chalmers? Not really, they already got caught red-handed. Did Beasley snitch on himself? Eventually. And Carmelo Anthony at one point of his life would not have approved, but we all have an ‘eventually.’

Beasley was all set to star in the sequel,
but ended up ripping into his favorite shirt.

Eventually, Michael Beasely stopped stop snitchin
