On Tuesday, Michael Beasley(notes) was introduced as the newest member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Jerry Zgoda of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune called the introduction "funny" and "seemingly honest." After two years of struggling to fit in in Miami, Beasley said he "just [wants] to play basketball. That's it." This could potentially be a very nice move for the Heat.
That's all well and good. But one big question remains — what was going on with Michael Beasley's hat?
This is exactly how I wore my hat in 1992. Of course, I was 8 years old and playing first base for a team called Plano Molding, not a 21-year-old in the NBA. It looks like this cap is about three sizes too small.
Yep, way too small. Maybe loosen it a few notches? Surely he'll figure it out. It's still early in the press conference.
OK, now David Kahn noticed and he is starting to giggle. This is getting awkward.
Nice try, Mike. While the hat change didn't really solve any problems, it did make your new boss laugh a lot. Surely he will now trade for six of the same tiny hats. Nonetheless, there is still time to fix this thing.
Oh, no. Now Beasley's head looks two feet tall. He's a regular Jermaine O'Neal(notes) with his tall head. Not to mention this is the picture that's going to be used everywhere to show that Beasley is now a Timberwolf. Whoops.
Goodness gracious his head is growing for some reason. Fix it, Super Cool Beas. Just do something. Anything. Please.
You know what? Close enough. That's as good as it'll get I'm afraid. Let's just call it a day and get some bigger hats next time.
