NBA Star Michael Beasley

TMZ has obtained VIDEO showing NBA star Michael Beasley shoving a fan in the face during a heated altercation at a playground game in New York last night.

The footage shows the Minnesota Timberwolves star jawing back and forth with a fan at Dyckman Park in New York City ... before finally losing his cool, shoving the fan in the face, and walking back towards the court.

Beasley went on to lead his team to victory over another park team led by NBA superstar Kevin Durant.

We're told the fan had been heckling Beasley throughout the game -- screaming taunts like, "You're a f**king bum ... you ain't sh*t Beasley."

Beasley approached the fan and said, "I've never been a bitch ... I'll show you that right now."

According to reports, Beasley sought out the fan after the game -- and shook his hand.

The BIG MOUTH is lucky all he got was shoved in the face. Stars shouldn't have to put up with outright abuse just because they are good at something. If it had been any other pick up game the guy woulda had the **** kicked out of him.

Sportsmanship has gone the way of bipartisanship. These days, everybody is fighting everybody else whether in politics or sports or whatever.

Damn, there was A LOT of red on that court after Beasley mushed that guy. Best part was at the end when someone must have asked to see the video or use the "director's" phone. To which he replied "Nah, I gotta tweet"

He shouldn't have let the fan get to him. But, some of these "fans" should be banned from sports--they just want to start trouble--mean and vicious.

Why aren't people such as this little clown man with the big mouth removed?
He is the kind that enjoys stirring up hostility & possible violence in crowds, why give it the opportunity to escalate.
