Michael Beasley Taking Ballet Lessons During NBA Lockout

Do they sell weed during class?

That is the only logical explanation of why Beasley would be in the class.

Here are the details.

But now it’s October, and Supercool Beas is shedding his leaves and starting anew. He’s doing yoga and pirouettes and he’s organizing exhibition games (it’s plausible that he’s doing it all stoned). From the Star Tribune:

He has played with childhood pal Durant and Wall in exhibition games across the country and also has incorporated elements of yoga, karate and, yes, ballet into summer workouts intended to make his body stronger, more limber and help ensure a long, productive career. He has dropped about 15 pounds after playing last season at 240 pounds.

“I don’t really dance,” he said. “I do it for the stretching.”

The story is that Beasley is trying to makeover his image, but I guess he thought we would forget that he went after a fan during an exhibition game this summer, but I digress.
