There's a pretty interesting discussion about LeBron being a parent, and at one point he notes that he regrets giving his son, LeBron James Jr., his own name. However, Beasley asserted that the new-look squad, already dubbed the "Meme Team", would "come together" nicely because he and his teammates "know how to play basketball". Beasley joins James, Lance Stephenson, JaVale McGee and Rajon Rondo as new Lakers acquired this offseason.
The 33-year-old star chose to wave goodbye to the Eastern Conference and take on the hard path of making the NBA Finals out of the stacked Western Conference.
The 29-year-old Beasley remains upset that their Miami squad lost to San Antonio in the NBA Finals that year.
He said: "For there to even be a narrative of the personalities in this room is judgment enough for me, and I don't want to be a part of that."
It's not clear if James has always felt that Beasley had a similar approach.
Beasley demonstrated that mature mentality when asked about his expectations and goals with the Lakers, who will have to put in plenty of preseason work figuring out how to play with each other.
Going into his 11th season, Beasley said he is not entering camp concerned about minutes or his role. "It's the total opposite". The four players have been known for wild and surreal moments on the basketball court in addition to having some of the most colorful personalities in a league that isn't short of personality.
Now that James is back and Magic Johnson is at the team controls, there should be no mistaking the message this small re-design is sending: Showtime is back, the lights are brighter and we're here to win championships.
