Just a couple days after posting this about being happy we took Rose over Beasley, a much more serious reason to be thrilled to have Rose rears it's head.
According to yahoo sports, Beasley checked into a rehab center for substance abuse and psychological issues.
I guess the bad tattoo remorse was too much to take.
All kidding aside, I hope Beasley sorts himself out. Like many NBA players, he didn't have the greatest upbringing, and I think that makes his transition awfully difficult. He was a great player to watch in college, and he could be an outstanding pro still.
I hope he's able to pull it together and gets the help he needs. Having known several people in situation where they needed to check into such facilities, it's a scary time for those close to him and something he'll likely struggle with his whole life.
