Malik Beasley isn’t living the best moment right now, as he serves a 120-day jail sentence for a rifle incident. The Minnesota Timberwolves player had a tumultuous season, full of off-court controversies that took him to this point.
He’s now trying to positively impact his fans’ lives after living getting involved in questionable situations over the past year. That’s why he decided to share a letter to help people get straight and out of trouble. The player took to Instagram to ask fans to learn from him and his experiences.
"Dear family, friends and fans,
"What's up guys, just wanted to say a few words. I'm doing better. I'm closer to God, closer to my family, and most importantly finding myself. Not sleeping at home has been tough but it's only temporary. I'm still working hard everyday on and off the court to be the best version of me. I want people to learn from me, because it's going to be one helluva story. This last year is just a chapter, and I hope you stayed tuned until the end. 30 for 30 get the crew ready lol.
"I'm reachable if you hit my business partner Christian Dawkins, or if you really want to reach me. Send a letter or book to Wright County J, under my name. I'll do my best to respond to everyone. I'm not looking for sympathy or anything like that, just to understand I could easily fold and I won't. For those who care, I love y'all and will return the favor I promise. Just be patient. Sending love & peace to everyone. Have a blessed weekend. <3 - MB5."
Prison isn’t anything easy and Beasley is watching that for himself. He was arrested after reportedly pointing a rifle at a family that came close to his house as part of a house parade. That incident resulted in this sentence and now he’ll spend 120 days in jail.
Beasley pleaded guilty to the threats of violence charge at the end of 2020. He started serving his sentence after the end of the 2020/21 NBA season. His Minnesota Timberwolves finished 13rd in the Western Conference. In 37 games, he averaged 19.6 points and 4.4 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game.
