I was watching the Miami-Boston game and asked myself: "Why does Michael Beasley never get touches. I mean, he's a gifted offensive player, and no matter how much you question his defensive intensity, at least acknowledge his offensive skills!
He's not as gifted in the NBA as he was in college and high school. His style is orthodox and it doesn't really work in the NBA. He fed off being faster and stronger than the other players in high school and college. In the NBA, everyone is as fast as you, everyone is stronger than you, and his confidence level isn't the same.
