Knicks’ Beasley: I match up with KD, LeBron

Michael Beasley seems to think the Knicks are on their way to better things.

Michael Beasley has turned into an NBA journeyman of sorts, but that doesn’t keep him from feeling confident — or perhaps, some might say, overconfident.

When asked how he feels about his game, the New York Knicks forward mentioned the likes of Kevin Durant and LeBron James.

“As far as talent-wise, I match up with Kevin, LeBron,” Beasley told Bleacher Report. “I match up with the best guys in the world.”

Beasley, 28, is 6-foot-9 and was the No. 2 overall draft pick by the Miami Heat in 2008.

He has served stints with the Minnesota Timberwolves, Phoenix Suns, Houston Rockets, Milwaukee Bucks and Heat — twice. He’s also played professionally in China — twice.

If there is a game and a paycheck, odds are, Beasley will find it. He averaged 9.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 56 games with the Bucks last season.

“If you look over the past nine years, I never played more than 24-25 minutes a game. Being a No. 2 pick, especially in my first 3-4 years, that should raise a question mark,” Beasley told Bleacher Report. “Not to toot my own horn, but not a lot of guys come into the NBA after the kind of year I had at Kansas State. For whatever reason, I just never got a fair shake.”

Now, perhaps, his time has come — as the Beasley could get every opportunity now that Carmelo Anthony is no longer a member of the Knicks.

“I’m not being cocky; it’s just always how I felt,” Beasley said.

  1. Hey I get that. I always thought I matched up with Decaprio, Clooney, Walberg and Stamos.
