Throughout his multiple stops during his erratic NBA career, current Phoenix Suns forward Michael Beasley has always been looked upon as a player with untapped potential. He also frequently has been looked upon as something of an oddball, an eccentric man with a lot of talent. That makes Beasley’s recent comments about “gremlins” interfering with his free throw attempts not at all surprising. Yep. Gremlins. Beasley, who finished the game with a double-double (14 points, 11 rebounds), albeit in Phoenix’s 102-90 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder on Monday, missed his first two free throws of the night. After the second miss, Beasley could be seen strolling down the lane, looking up at the rim he just clanked his free throws off and shook his head. Explaining the somewhat perplexing act afterward, Beasley told reporters: “I had to scare the gremlins away,” adding, “Those gremlins are always messing with me.” Video of Beasley’s antics on Monday night are unavailable, but video of Beasley pulling his Gremlin-shushing antics was located from when he did the same thing while a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves last season: Strange. And see? Once Beasley walked up to the rim and confronted those pesky — albeit invisible (at least to everyone besides Beasley) — gremlins and scared them off, Beasley sunk his next free throw. Still, it’s obvious that Michael Beasley wasn’t aware of the fact that he should never have fed those adorable Mogwais he picked up in that creepy Chinatown shop after midnight. Gremlins stars Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates would have told him that. If he could have found those two lost actors from the 1980s. Seriously, I hope they are doing alright.   TweetThe post Suns forward Michael Beasley blames missed free throws on ‘those gremlins’ (video) appeared first on Sportress of Blogitude.
