Lindsey Hunter stares down Michael Beasley SMH style after airball (Video)

Lindsey Hunter Michael Beasley stareLindsey Hunter had a tremendous reaction to Michael Beasley airballing a jumper on Friday night. The Suns coach stared down his player with a classic “shaking my head” (SMH) expression. He then moved his gaze down to his bench where he appeared to be looking for others to corroborate what he had just seen.

Beasley was subbed out about a minute later. He was 2-for-8 for six points in 15 minutes of Phoenix’s 113-88 loss to the Boston Celtics. Per Suns reporter Paul Coro, Beasley complained after the game about a bruised elbow affecting his shot. X-rays were negative.

To be fair, Hunter’s reaction to the airball is the same expression Suns fans have had all season.

Lindsey Hunter Suspended for 10 Games

That was the breaking news headline on ESPNEWS a few moments ago…no details just yet, but it’s weird. That’s such ambiguous news. Rather, the suspension isn’t ambiguous, but the reason is.  Lindsey Hunter suspended for 10 games for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.

What does that mean?  Was he busted using performance enhancers?  Steroids?  Do they even test for that stuff in the NBA?  Was he caught doing blow, smoking a joint?  What, what, what?  I’m on a need-to-know basis and I don’t know!! 

I digress, now at least you know the news.  At the time of this posting, there is no other information available.

UPDATE: Turns out Hunter was suspended 10 games for…taking his wife’s diet pills??  That has to be the most bizarre way to get busted.  His quote was my favorite:

“I just hope people don’t think I’m out smoking marijuana.”

Amen brother.
