    Default Beasley and Wall playing some pretty intense pickup ball.




    Beasley looks in good shape. Both of them do.

    The pre injury Wall would be of some use right now.

    You know some team with a short window would take a long look at Wall contract and all.

    If the Bucks could get a healthy Wall you know they wouldn’t care. It’s all in or rebuild time.

    Bucks need shooters around Giannis. That's the problem they have with Bledsoe. Should have kept Brogdan instead

    I was planning to create a thread about it. Good stuff. Beasley deserves another chance in the nba.

    disagree, Bucks needs good offensive players (guys who can score on their own), Oladipo, Demar type of player.

    It's an every off-season topic, actually. Beasley will have his breakout year this season. Like it was with Stromile Swift or Jonathan Bender back in the day. To be honest, I think he could be an important role-player in the NBA, but he has got some things (lack of defense, lack of consistency, not many signs of professionalism) that keeps teams at an arms' length from him. Otherwise, he would have been a great second or third option.

    Also, is it me or does John Wall look a bit fat?

    Beasley is Kyle Kuzma's tweener predecessor. Except unlike Kuzma, he was relatively efficient at scoring.

    He's looking more muscular to me than he did before.

    He's not lifting the ball as high/over his head as before. Hopefully that translates to a more consistent shot. He gets so much space to shoot, it never made sense for him to shoot such high-release shots leaning backwards.

    He had a problem with bone spurs in his heel before the Achilles. Allegedly he's back from BOTH injuries. It's been a really really long time since Wall was healthy. If he sees an uptick in 3's, replaces some long 2's with 3's, he could be back at all-star level.

    I always wonder why Wall doesn't post up more on mismatches. Teams always try to wear him out chasing small guards around the perimeter, but he rarely changes up his style to deal with these mismatches on the other end. I remember he used to get a few touches down low in his rookie year, and he looked pretty good. I hope they took the last year to analyze ways he can play better outside of running pick and rolls.

    It does feel like he’s been gone for years but this is vs Lebron on the Lakers:



    And this was 4 days from that:






    He’s probably got a lot in the tank. He turned 30 a month ago.

    wall will be back and balling in the leauge. guaranteed.



    if he caught that achilles injury any later in his career it would be a different story



    and we all know kd will be back lighting up as well. zero doubt about that.

    I don't know if the Bucks could trust Wall in playoff games... compared to CP3

    lol Michael Beasley? Why isn't this guy playing in the CBA? It's hilarious how people talk about him like what could have been blah blah...hasn't this clown been on about 10 ****ing teams? I guess they just didn't "get it", right? Some idiot saying he would have been a 2nd or 3rd option on a great team....lmfao...this guys ceiling even if he had his head on straight was a 6th man. He has some skill, but his athleticism is atrocious NBA wise. He's just slow. More than that he's ****ING LAZY. He's accepted his physical deficiencies and done absolutely nothing to try and battle back forth...with like hard work, ethics, high bbiq...etc. He was never NBA material.
