VIDEO: Michael Beasley Nearly Fights A Fan At Dyckman Park While Playing Kevin Durant

Michael Beasley has had plenty of off-court incidents so it's a pretty rare feat when he's able to surprise your's truly with his antics. The Minnesota Timberwolves forward did exactly that on Thursday night in a New York City summer league game, however.

"Super Beas" decided to push a heckling fan in the face during a random exhibition game at the famed Dyckman Park while playing against a team featuring Kevin Durant, causing play to be stopped for a decent amount of time as security made sure the packed house didn't cause too much of an additional ruckus.

Beasley's behavior was summed up nicely by New York Daily News beatwriter Stefan Bondy.

Not-so-bright Michael Beasley was bothered by heckling from a spectator. Beasley walked up and mushed him in the face. "I get paid to do this." Beasley was shouting at the spectator before the incident. It stopped play for about 10 minutes.

Video of the incident is included below.
