I Called It!

This is Renardo Sidney, NOT Michael Beasley

Remember, like two weeks ago when I wrote this?

Beasley had an incident-free tenure at Kansas State. Why Kansas State? Not entirely clear, although the school’s hiring of his AAU coach probably had something to do with it, and it bears noting that his mother moved out to the area for work as well, which, you know, is one of those things that tends to happen for big recruits.

Well, as it turns out

Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley says in a lawsuit that his former agent gave him and his mother improper benefits during his one season at Kansas State.

Beasley filed a countersuit in a Maryland court a month ago in response to agent Joel Bell’s wrongful termination lawsuit against him. Beasley says Bell conspired with Beasley’s AAU coach to forge a relationship with the star from the time he was 14 years old in hopes of cashing in on that relationship when Beasley went to the NBA.

Beasley says Bell gave his mother living expenses and paid for her move to Manhattan, Kan., when he went to school there, which would likely violate NCAA rules.

Wow. Obviously only a super-genius could find something suspicious about the number one recruit in the country (and for that matter, the number seven recruit as well. It’s just that nobody cares about Bill Walker anymore) electing to spend his college year in Manhattan, KS, population 52,281. Even by Kansas standards, that’s pretty isolated.

Lamar Odom going to UNLV then Rhode Island thinks that’s suspicious. Marcus Fizer going to Iowa State is wondering why an All-American would go into the middle of nowhere for his collegiate career. I tried to find any additional collegiate choices in the one and done era (post-2006) that were, um, questionable, and here are the ones that I came up with:
