Michael Beasley Unravels Via Twitter
Miami Heat forward Michael Beasley checked into a rehab facility in Houston over the weekend, just days after a photo of the number two overall draft pick with what may have been a bag of pot made waves on sports blogs across the country.
Beasley posted the photo to his Twitter page on August 19. The image centers on the basketball player's newest tattoo: the phrase SupercoolBeas inked across his back with a pair of red glasses dangling from the "S". On a table in the background, however, is a plastic bag with what looks like it could be pot.
But a search of the cached pages shows a number of troubling (and exclamation-point laden) messages from the 20-year-old former Kansas State standout.
At 10:48 p.m. on August 18, the night before Beasley put up the photo, he wrote a mysterious note:
On the afternoon of August 21, from his phone, Beasley typed:
"Y do I feel like the whole world is against me!!!!!!! Back on my FTW!!!!! I can't win for losin!!!!!!!!!!"
(The other tweets, and the questionable photo, after the jump.)
