Former NBA basketball player Michael Beasley broke down in tears during an interview after discussing dealing with trust issues after people close to him stole money from him, even his mother. He said that “Everybody except for my kids stole from me.”
On The Pivot, a podcast featuring former NFL players Ryan Clark, Channing Crowder, and Fred Taylor, Beasley talks about how the misfortunes in his life have affected his mental health. The conversation was meant to discuss his playing days in the NBA, and it turned into Beasley confessing that he doesn’t have it all together mentally. Explaining to the hosts that he was living a good life during his basketball playing days, but now that they’re done, it’s not a great situation to be in.
The former NBA player, who played for seven different teams, including the New York Knicks, the Los Angeles Lakers, and the Miami Heat, talks about how everyone in his life has stolen from him and that he is done trying and ready to give up on himself.
