Knicks' Michael Beasley Has Philosophical Discussion over Words and Brain Power

It seems like it requires more than 10 percent of the brain to keep up with Michael Beasley's thoughts.         

Luckily, that limit on a human's brain power is just a myth, but the New York Knicks forward pondered that idea when discussing the power of words in SNY's Timeout with Taylor Rooks podcast. 

The conversation with Rooks took a turn when he asked, "Who was the guy that used 11 that made it OK to say everybody is just using 10?"

Rooks argued everyone operated with 10 percent of their brain. Beasley, however, insisted that someone only using 10 percent could not know about the other 90 percent not being utilized.

"I'm the first person in the world, right?" Beasley asked. "Say I'm Adam, and I wrote that we can only use 10 percent of our brains. That means I would have to surpass the number of percent."

He also said all words needed someone to attach a meaning to them when they're first used.

Later in the interview, he said, "I believe everything we speak comes into fruition." The Knicks open the 2017-18 regular season Oct. 19, and he implored fans to stay positive and "speak us into the playoffs."

"I've been going through so much ridicule," Beasley said, "so if I say something and it don't happen, I don't care."
