image from: nba.com The Phoenix Suns have finally put their money where their mouth is and gone through with their threat to waive Michael Beasley. The move comes in light of Beasley’s recent legal troubles surrounding marijuana possession as well as his overall lazy attitude towards playing professional basketball. Suns President of Basketball Operations Lon Babby explained the reason to waive Beasley rather simply: “We’re going to require that they adhere to the highest standards of personal conduct and that’s important to communicate to the younger players, community and organization,” Babby said. “We worked hard to devote ourselves to Michael’s sucess but we have to maintain the standards to build a championship culture.” While it isn’t certain if the Phoenix Suns will be able to ever establish a “championship culture”, it is certain that Michael Beasley isn’t the right kind of guy to help them reach that goal. While Beasley is incredibly talented, he is also lazy, idle, and careless with how he dictates his life, which is why it is no surprise that he has played on three NBA teams in his five year career. Each destination (Miami, Minnesota, and Phoenix) have had the hope of being the place where Beasley catches the vision and buds into the super-star that everybody has believed he would become. Sadly, it appears that no destination will be the right place for Beasley, which means that only the most desperate of franchises will take a chance on him. Beasley is still only 24 years old with a lot of basketball left in him. But at the moment, he doesn’t seem to be showing any signs of improvement in his play, work ethic, or behavior. Until he catches the vision that life can pass you by in the blink of an eye and that he is wasting a golden opportunity to be a dynamic NBA player, he will continue to be a disappointing bum who smokes blunts on the bench. —Ben Parker: follow me on twitter @nba_lord  The post The Phoenix Suns Waive Michael Beasley appeared first on Pass The Pill - Kings of Hoops.
