Driving up to the AAC nearly three hours before the game, I
noticed a gaggle of folks in purple.
They weren’t Lakers’ fans. They were all wearing
Kansas State shirts, apparently in support of Michael Beasley, who was at
K-State for one season before jumping to the NBA.
That’s a lot of love for a guy who only got the
Wildcats out of the first round in the NCAA Tournament, where they were
summarily whacked by Wisconsin.
Anyway, it’s interesting that Beasley sold a few
tickets to this game, which otherwise has all the attraction of a chess match.
