Michael Beasley is loving life in China. Despite only being allowed to play alternating quarters, Beasley dropped a record 59 points in the Chinese Basketball Association all-star game.
The former Kansas State standout and No. 2 overall selection in the 2008 NBA draft, had gone overseas, signing a one-year deal with the Yao Ming-owned Shanghai Sharks of the Chinese Basketball Association back in October after the Miami Heat declined to bring him back.
Beasley is averaging 29.4 points on 51.4 percent shooting to go with 10.4 rebounds and 4.7 assists in 38.5 minutes per game.
It remains to be seen whether such a showing will get Beasley back into the NBA.
