We should convert him to a PG ;) Don't tell me you don't think that thought hasn't crossed Kahn's sick mind.
standing reach is more important then height, and did you ever consider that it wasn't because the lakers were and inch bigger, but that they had better players... Pau has the best post moves in the game right now.
Beasley cant play wing and isnt as good as a scorer as Mcgrady when he averaged 20 and 10 per game as freshman playing on the peremeter cmon man
Actually McGrady didn't average anything as a freshman. He didn't go to college.
he's talking about Beasley averaging that
I see. My bad Demarcus Oneal I didn't read very carefully.
Yes, that is true MBRH, standing reach is more important than height. But think about this. Let's say 6'8 PF has a wingspan of 7'3. Thats 7 inches more than his regular height but does not try hard at all. Will he survive in the NBA against PF's who are 6'10, 6'11 who actually do play hard. No, he would not. The wingspan is big but that doesn't matter. You have to have heart especially if you are undersized. And that is something that Beasley just doesn't have and that is why him being an undersized 4 matters. If he just played with a little heart, intensity, use that athletic ability on the defensive end he would be so much better and we wouldn't even be having this debate. When it all comes down to it, you have to have heart, determination, and intensity to succeed in the NBA, especially if you are undersized. This is something that Beasley does not have or has not displayed yet. And therefore I am sitting here wanting more, and downgrading him the way I am.
Beasley is Al Harrington 2.0, just with more flash/style to his game. He's a tweener, so he'll never be great at either position. I think where he plays should depend on the matchup. I like him more at the four.
I'd bring him off the bench.
O god...I didnt say he ould play like McGrady, they have similar styles or anything. I think Beasley and T-Mac are similar due to the fact that Toronto and Miami werent allowing him fully play to his potential. I think he will be much better in Minni and we will all be forced to shutup about him being a bust or this or that and respect his game. Thats all...
