Ill sue you so hard

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley is suing his former agent, Joel Bell
in the civil suit which is a counter to a suit filed by Bell in January.
Bell’s suit claims Beasley wrongfully terminated his representation agreement with Bell Sports Inc. just prior to signing an endorsement deal with Adidas and therefore was in breach of contract.

Beasley asserts in his suit that Bell Sports Incorporated President Joel Bell bankrolled Curtis Malone’s nationally recognized DC Assault summer basketball program and that in return Malone felt obliged to steer Beasley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft, to Bell for professional representation. Beasley’s suit contends that, along the way, Bell and Malone violated NCAA rules and federal laws governing agent conduct.

Well this is pretty much the order of the day in AAU basketball.  There are shady agents, coaches, and players all along the way.  Then magic happens when all three of them collide like this.  The Beas had rumors of being the "wrong" type of guy since high school.  All he did was jump around to the next best deal (6 schools, 5 states), tag his name all over the high school and then have Kansas state move his family out there.

"I'm just killing time here," said Beasley, who averages 28 points and 16 rebounds from the forward position. "Sometimes it seems like high school lasts forever."

"Me and Tywon Lawson had a competition at the beginning of the school year about who could sign their autograph the most around the school," Beasley said, referring to a teammate who now stars at North Carolina. "And I don't lose at anything, man, so I walked around with one of those Sharpies and signed graffiti everywhere. Every day, they were cleaning my name off water fountains, ceilings, desks, offices -- whatever. I just thought it was funny."

He wore pajamas to the school cafeteria. He threw sticks at teachers' houses. He snuck out of his dorm after curfew and organized games of hide-and-go seek.

The Beas sounds kind of awesome.  For me he is the "right" type of party with.  Play on player

"Super Cool Beas"  what a great nickname.  I really hope he gave it to himself
