Michael Beasley had great intentions when the the Minnesota Timberwolves forward announced intentions to hold the Michael Beasley All-Star Classic in Osseo, Minn., on Friday night. Unfortunately things aren't exactly working out well for him as Kevin Love, John Wall and Kevin Durant have all had to bow out of the charity game.
The game was originally set to feature the four aforementioned players along with DeMarcus Cousins and Timberwolves teammates Derrick Williams and Wesley Johnson. With Love, Durant and Wall now out, however, the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda reports a few changes have been made.
Organizers are working to add another star name or two. Beasley's Timberwolves teammate Wayne Ellington and Washington's Josh Howard have been added to the game.
They've changed ticket prices from $60, $120 and $300 to $40 for general admission, $80 for VIP reserved and $200 for one of 35 courtside seats.
All in all, it's for charity and therefore a worthy cause regardless of who is going to play what amounts to being a meaningless game of basketball regardless.
