D Magazine Talks With Roddy Beaubois

Zac Crain of D Magazine has an interesting profile on Mavericks guard Roddy Beaubois for their November edition.

Among several interesting items, this is something I'm concerned about:

Beaubois is also not worried about his broken foot. Some foot problems are no big deal (Michael Jordan broke his early in his career, to little effect) and others can threaten entire careers (Houston's Yao Ming has seriously considered retirement). They're especially troubling when the player in question relies so heavily on his speed. When he comes back, will Roddy Beaubois still be the same player who, in another game against the Minnesota Timberwolves last season, turned a simple in-bounds play in the back court into a one-man fast break, simply because he was faster than everyone else on the floor? Who knows?

Lots of good stuff in here, including several quotes from Beaubois and a couple from Rick Carlisle. Definitely worth checking out.
