We sat down to talk to Michael Beasley about basketball and ended up having one of the most powerful and honest conversations…
The former Number 2 NBA pick, Beasley opens up about his life without basketball and how he feels helpless and alone in a world once filled with money and fame.
Breaking down how everyone in his life has stolen from him and created a narrative based on their own judgements of his reactions, Beasley tell Ryan, Fred and Channing how he’s done trying and ready to give up.
Fighting through emotions, the guys talk his nba career, the loss of his mother, relationship with Kevin Durant and his current mental health as they try to work through what comes next for the once NBA superstar. Beas finds it important to talk about his own narrative instead of letting everyone think they know what goes on his life.
Never judge a book by its cover, we all have stories and journeys that lead us to where we are in life. No matter who we are, we all need help along the way. We commend Beas for opening up and sharing his story and for the vulnerability to help impact others.
If you or someone you know is struggling, please reach out and talk about it, holding things in does none of us any good. Mental Health is not something to take lightly.
