'Show some respect': Malik Beasley asks trolls to leave his wife Montana Yao alone after low stats irk fans
LOS ANGLES, CALIFORNIA: Malik Beasley, who is not going through a good phase since being traded to the Lakers, has made a plea to Lakers fans who have harassed his wife and family on social media.
The 26-year-old has been shooting just 37.8 percent from the field - a lower mark than any season of his career. Beasley's comes after Chicago Bulls player Patrick Beverley made the same claims regarding the highly abusive behaviors of many Lakers fans.

What did Malik Beasley say?
“It's my son’s birthday and I am trying to enjoy that,” he said in the comments section of his latest Instagram post. “Obviously I want to be making shots myself. I am harder on myself than anybody. Laker nation it’s only a matter of time. I put in too much work not to." It further added, "I promise when the time to turn up comes, it will come. Let’s just focus on making the playoffs. Positively is the only way forward from here. I love y’all and just show some respect to me and my family…….including @montanayo (his wife, Montana Yao).”

Meanwhile, Beverley has also gone through similar troubles recently. “I play a bad game with Chicago, I ain’t gotta look on Twitter and hear, ‘He’s a bum, get him outta here!’ Like I was hearing that s*** in L.A,” he said on his podcast.
Although his performances may not be up to the mark, Beasley has 13 games this season with five or more three-pointers. It is believed that it is just a matter of time before he starts scoring again.
