Default Caron Butler wants to mentor Michael Beasley

Quote:
Hes a guy that had an unbelievable collegiate career, who came into the NBA as a top-two pick, so the talent is there, it hasnt gone anywhere. Its like clay, it just needs to be molded right. Somebody needs to be around him, talking to him and telling him the right things and building him up and keeping nothing but positive energy around him and moving him forward instead of pulling him back.

Butler, a raging success story born out of an unsavory childhood, arrested numerous times before he turned 15, said if Beasley remains with the team, and if the 6-foot-10, 235-pounder is willing, he will stick by the kids side, mentor him, attempt to reach him. At this point, save him from himself.

I would stay in his ear, I would definitely stay in his ear, Butler said. I would continue to motivate him and I would challenge him night-in and night-out, in practice, just whatever I can do to make him better I would do as a human being, and obviously as a basketball player because I think he has tremendous upside still. Hes just 24 years old.

Butler was arrested 11 times for drug dealing before he was 15, and managed to turn his life around Do you guys think he can help Beasley if the Suns decided to give him one more shot?

I know I know, I agree with you. It's just funny to me. The whole Beasley height conversation is just kind of nostalgic for me, brings me back to a totally different era of Heat basketball.

They was saying he was 6'10 in college but yeah I know he's like 6'8.

Didn't the Suns let him go? We got til August 31 to do so.

I hope they release this nikka. He said he changed when we first signed him

I don't want the Suns to take that chance.

Just waive him and continue to rebuild.

Beasley don't want help

I don't think Kobe would have the attention span to do so He'd probably end up kicking Beasley's ass or something

That is pretty cool of Butler. I think that is what Beasley needs, someone to stay in his ear and help him stay focused and positive. The dude has potential and I hate to see a brother waste that God-given talent on being foolish. Mad props to Butler for stepping up to help a player in need.

I would love to see Beasley reach his potential, dude could be a top 5/10 scorer in the league in my opinion. I doubt we'll ever see it though.
