You do mean that Melo is less athletic than Beasley right? Because with all of Melo's skills, he isn't a high jumper like Lebron, Kobe, or Carter. Beasley could be the most athletic in this draft. He reminds me alot of a young Antoine Walker back in his days with Boston or Lamar Odom without the passing skills. If he lands on a team like Miami, his numbers won't be eye-popping since he'll be rebounding with Marion and scoring with Wade, so numbers like 12 and 6 wouldn't be far fetched. If he lands on a team like Minnesota who don't have much scoring and rebounding options besides Jefferson, he could easily be a 18 and 9 game in the league.
