While the best teams are on the big stage of the playoffs, the others, eliminated, are on vacation, and the players are enjoying a well-deserved rest after two very complicated years physically and mentally. But for Mike Beasley, it’s anything but a vacation since the Wolves winger is sleeping in jail. After pleading guilty to threatening a family with a pistol, he received a modified sentence of 120 days in prison, and justice had accepted that he serve his sentence after the NBA season.
Like Kentavious Caldwell-Pope in 2017, Beasley sleeps in the Hennepin County Jail in Minneapolis, but he is allowed to go out during the day to train. On Instagram, he posted about this experience.
“Dear parents, friends and fans,
“What’s up on your side?” I just wanted to say a few words. I’m better. I am closer to God, closer to my family, and above all I find myself. Not sleeping at home has been difficult, but it’s only temporary. I continue to give my all every day, on and off the pitch, for the best possible person. I want people to learn from me, parke it’s gonna be a hell of a story. This past year is just a chapter, and I hope you’ll stay tuned until the end. The 30 for 30 teams, get ready, lol. “
Beasley further explains that he “isn’t looking for sympathy or anything like that” but “just realizes” that he “could easily crack” and that he won’t. “
Also suspended 12 matches by the NBA for this sad affair, he returned to the field at the end of March. ” ” I feel much better. I feel like my life is where it should be. I have had the chance to work on myself on and off the pitch. I have learned from my mistakes, and I am ready to move forward ”, he had notably declared. “I work on my mental health, my image, I did a few things off the field and in the community. “
