Pretty much exactly what I was getting across. No one can make a valid "Beal > Waiters" argument that has anything to do with basketball ability.
Beal has no handle, is very basic in his ability to play off the ball, has no "in-between" game, and can't shoot off the dribble. Why people act like those flaws from a SG don't matter is beyond me.
