Denver Nuggets point guard Ty Lawson was the 18th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves who eventually traded him to the Denver Nuggets in a draft day trade between the two teams. Michael Beasley, who was the second overall pick by the Miami Heat in the 2008 NBA Draft struggled with maturity, virtually destroying his career.
Ty Lawson was recently just arrested for DUI yet again, but according to Lawson himself, he would be getting in more trouble if he was in a different place other then Denver. Laswson also said that Beasley wasn’t ready to be mature, and Miami wasn’t the place he should’ve been to get his career started.
Michael Beasley, he was drafted like No. 2 pick, he went to Miami, and people was like, ‘Why is he acting like this?’ He is 19 years old and Miami is giving him $5 million, what do you think he’s going to do with it? He’s going a little crazy. I would go crazy. I’m blessed that I went to Denver because it’s really chill. If I went to Miami, I don’t think I would have made it.
