Are the Lakers (without Phil Jackson) the kind of team that could get Beasley to modify his behavior?
Or would the media circus LA is only make it worse for him?
I don't know the answer to your first question. But considering who our head coach is, I would say, no. But there is the Kobe factor and Pau Gasol, who both "might" make a difference. And even though he would be under a lot more media scrutiny in L.A. than anywhere but NYC, it is still the Lakers, which also might, and I do say MIGHT make a difference.
But the truth is, where we are now as a team, we can use even the knuckleheads of the league as long as they are talented.
