The man nicknamed "B-Easy" was just that at the All-Star Game last weekend.

No, not the NBA All-Star Game. Michael Beasley doesn't play in the United States anymore. The former Timberwolves forward is now a superstar in the Chinese Basketball Association, and he set a record by scoring 59 points in the league's All-Star Game.

According to the league's website, Beasley didn't just break the record; he shattered the record. The previous CBA All-Star high was 44 points, scored by former Rutgers University star Quincy Douby.

Beasley, who played in Minnesota from 2010-2012, added 11 rebounds and five assists en route to being named the game's MVP.

Ball Don't Lie notes that Beasley is averaging 29.4 points, 10.4 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game in China this season.

Here's some video to prove that Beasley dunked about a million times. Speculation around the league is that Beasley could get another shot in the NBA when the CBA season ends in March.
