NBA Star Michael Beasley

Shoves Fan In Face


8/5/2011 7:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
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.
