"Yea, from the expectations

"Yea, from the expectations he had from College to realizing he's not a 4? Yea, he failed in my eyes."

Actaully Knicksboy he plays much more effiecientl offensively at the 4.His rebounding thou gets alot worse do to the size and strength differential and his defence gets a little worse as well. Beasley is a very underrated defender thou.

I know all that but ....

When the hell is Rubio really coming over...

Are they waiting to get the # 1 pick sometime in the next 3 years ...

Are they trying to use that elusive # 1 and the growth of these T' Pups to lure Rubio and 1 Superstar after the new CBA( 2012???)

Are they really in a position to keep Beasley and Love in a year or two and stay the course and under the cap...

Can the City of Minnesota really afford to keep a losing team that's best player's don't play for the team they support after the Lock out and New CBA ...

Can the Fans wait for
A) these guys to grow into good to great starters(Flynn,Wesley,Beasley,Love,Darko or Pekovic)

B)These guys to become good role players(Lazar,Webster and Ellington)

C)The Wolves winning the # 1 pick This year or Next...(Barnes,Jones,Kanter,Sullinger or Irving???)
Really do any potential # 1 picks have game changer written on them???

You're from

Brooklyn, at least what your profile says youngster, so I assume your ghetto, nobody here in the Midwest would live in that &$#%#&@! hole, out here we consider that ghetto, really anybody not living in a nice house in a nice area is ghetto out here.

I like Randolph alot as a

I like Randolph alot as a talent in the NBA game but I dont know what the plan is on how to use him alongside Gallinari and Stoudemire on the Knicks and still dont know that hes found a true identity. If they start him I think hes a breakout year, maybe in the neigborhood of 16 and 9.Beasley has always had off the charts talent and was a better high school/college player than Randolph but I think he is on a sliding scale. Jeff Van Gundy made a very good point about him when someone tried to rave about his potential and how good he would be if he ever "got it." He asked how many guys actually ever do get it. And thats true, you can become more mature but the fact is people rarely change who they are through and through. In meeting and talking to Beasley I don't have any confidence that he'll ever carry himself like a true professional, talent alone is not enough. Not to mention he is still a tweener and has Kevin Love/Wes Johnson to deal with in Minnesota, who are both very mature and talented guys. It's tough but i'll take Blatche over Randolph because he became pretty much a near double-double guy at the end of last season and his franchise has the most energy and buzz with the addition of John Wall.

OK...Northernlights....that's

OK...Northernlights....that's the stupidest post I have ever seen on this site. If him being from a borough in New York makes him ghetto, than being from the Midwest makes you a corn fed, NASCAR loving redneck...or at least poor due to the downward spiral of the auto industry. Aren't stereotypes fun?

Anyway, to get back on topic...I think all 3 men are going to have break out years. I think that the worst overall talent of the 3 is Blatch mainly to me he has the worst IQ of the 3 and is the most limited as far as his outside shooting and ball handling goes. The one who will do the best to me is Beasley mainly because of the spot he is in. Look at that roster, he has the opportunity to be the #1 scoring option on what arguably may be the worst team in the NBA next year. Everyone talks about the talent of Kevin Love, but you got to remember Beasley brings a lot to the table. I think that a move from Miami where trouble could lurk from the nightlife there, to Minnesota could help sort those character issues out.

That's racist and stereotyping. Brooklyn is not all ghetto. Get it right before you speak. Also, you live in Minnesota? You have no right to talk AT ALL. Brooklyn has beautiful brownstones and the city is developing even though we have ghettos in the area. Do your homework before saying stupid &$#%#&@!. Honestly, you sound like a little white kid who never left the block... Go do something with your life.

I think it's clear that

I think it's clear that Michael Beasley is at the top of my list right now. I always knew that he could flourish if he was traded to another team. Miami just wasn't a good fit for im. He's a scoring machine!

Andray Blatche is second on my list. He's playing solid, but not very efficient. He also isn't playing good defense. The foot injury during the summer caused him ti be out of shape and he isn't playing at 100% because he knee is bothering him, so I'll give him a pass, for now. As he gets into better shape, he should start playing better as the season goes along.

Randolph is third. He was the main piece of the NY-GS trade, but hasn't been the best player from that trade so far. e has mainly been glued to the bench and hasn't made a big contribution.
