Malik Beasley aiming to make NBA All-Defensive team: ‘I want to guard the best player’

Michael Porter Jr. and Jamal Murray

Minnesota Timberwolves guard Malik Beasley has had a dramatic offseason to say the least.

However, with the NBA returning in just under a week, the talented youngster seems to have his mind focused on the right things.

Beasley recently stated his desire to hone in on the defensive end and even earn a spot on an All-Defensive team this season.

This offseason, Beasley made a number of headlines for off-court issues. Not only has he been dealing with legal issues, but he’s also in the middle of some major marital drama.

Still, Beasley proved that he can be a highly productive player in the NBA last season. In his 14 games with the Wolves, the 24-year-old averaged 20.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game.

If he can continue producing at that clip while also ascending as a defensive staple, he could quickly become one of the league’s rising stars.
