You draft Beasley and you fix Chicago's number 1 issue which is inside scoring. Sure Beasley thinks himself of more of a 3 before a 4, but he is a beast and would play 4 for almost any team in the league.

Actually, the frontcourt was the strength of the team last year. It was the guards that really brought us down.

You draft Rose, you have to worry about dropping either Hinrich, Hughes, Gordon, or Thabo. AND you still have to fill the need of a solid post player. Sorry Tyrus Thomas cannot fill this role.

We are not obligated to bring Gordon back. I am perfectly fine with Rose and Hinrich starting, and Thabo and Hughes coming off the bench. As for the solid post player, did you see the numbers Gooden was putting up while playing hurt? Almost 15/10, and that's with an abdominal strain. If you add Rose to the equation, I could definitely see him getting 20/10 next season. It's not that much of a stretch.

Bascially drafting Rose creates more work, something Pax doesn't have the balls to do. Draft Beasley and put that team on the court and they would be a winning team - with Rose, there is no telling if the team would mesh under Rose.

What's to say we mesh with Beasley added to the mix? He's not that great of a defender, he's undersized, and when he gets the ball, he turns into Ben Gordon.

The team had meshed with Hinrich 2 years ago, then trade rumors, coaching issues, and a trade happend and screwed a bunch of stuff up. Putting Beasley on the floor, makes the entire team better more than you'd think - he takes pressure off of other players, which can be just as effective as someone who can get a player open for a jump shot. (Not to mention Chicago has been a jump shooting team for awhile now, and far has that gotten us?)

You said it, we meshed with Hinrich, then distractions got in the way. This year, there won't be any distractions, as long as Paxson does what is necessary and gets rid of Gordon and Duhon. Then we have our 4 guard rotation, nobody has to worry about anything, and we can get back to how we were playing in 2006.
