    Beasley not drafted in the top 2?

    What are these teams thinking? First off, Beasley is clearly the best player in this draft. Mark my words, Derrick Rose will end up being a bust of monumental proportions. But then for the heat not to take him with the second pick? Good lord.

    I heard this today. I wouldn't mind seeing the Timberwolves get him.

    Beasley will still go two, the Heat just need a guard more than they need him....

    I agree with you about Beasley and Rose in this draft. I'm just not sold on Rose

    Who's to say Beasley won't be a gigantic bust as well?

    Re: Beasley not drafted in the top 2?

    Rose fills a need for the Bulls. Point Guard is the hot position nowadays. Everybody wants the next Chris Paul on their roster. The heat are in the same position as the Bulls, wanting a PG above all else. Plus, they have Shawn Marion who they are paying an incredible amount of money to, who will be playing basically the same game. Beasley may not have the body to play the 4 in the NBA, so he projects to be something of a tweener. Additionally, Pat Riley has said that Beasley isn't really his "type" of player. They figure if they can trade out of the 2nd spot, they can still get their PG, and something else in return.

    And remind me how much NBA teams are paying you to do their scouting for them?

    Re: Beasley not drafted in the top 2?

    Why do you think Rose will be a bust? I'm just curious. I think he'll be great.

    Re: Beasley not drafted in the top 2?

    They were talking about this on Mike and Mike this morning...Beasley's work ethic has been questioned by several teams/scouts. Also, potential character issues as well.

    Re: Beasley not drafted in the top 2?

    I don't think it is Beasley's athletic abilities that teams are concerned about, I think it is more of his attitude and willingness to work to get better at his game that is the concern.

    Pat Riley said he wasn't kean on Beasley and they are talking about trading Marion to LA for Odom and Walton. If that were to happen they wouldn't have a spot for Beasley and would probably look at Mayo.

    I think Beasley in MN would be a risky situation because of these concerns too. If he pans out and is paired with Jefferson that team would be better real quick. On the other hand it might not be long until you list him in a long line of draft day busts for the T-Pups.

    Re: Beasley not drafted in the top 2?

    I think Beasley is the bust waiting to happen... him and Kevin Love.

    I hope the T-Wolves get Mayo and play Foye at the 1. Line-up of Foye, Mayo, Brewer, and Jefferson... not sure who would be the 5 but those 4 would have me plenty excited.

    Re: Beasley not drafted in the top 2?

    I don't think Rose is a bust of monumental proportions. He would have to be worse than Kwame Brown and I don't see that happening.

    I said in another post but to me Derrick Rose is Carlos Beltran. A good player who got hot at the perfect time and is now going to benefit b/c of it. He was good all year long and would have been a lottery pick but his play in the final 4 games of the year moved him from the 5-15 range to number 1. I don't see how those games trump Beasley's 30 games but oh well

    Just from watching him play. I don't see that guy on the court and think, 'wow, he is a star'. I don't even think he was Memphis' best player. When you watch Beasley, you immediately know he is the best player on the floor. I think he is the best talent to come out of college in a long time. Better than Oden or Durant. Can you imagine if Durant would have came back so we could have seen them match up in the Big 12? It would have been fun, but I think Beasley would have broke him in half.
