Default "For Miami Heat's Michael Beasley, what a difference a year makes"

Quote:
The NBA game also provided a passkey of sorts to a lifestyle of late-night hangouts, clubs and flirtations with irresponsibility. For Beasley, the NBA now rhymes with 401K. And it represents a chance to provide for life well after he no longer hears the buzzer.

Maturation is no longer something for him to consider. It is a mandate.

Obviously having a child is going to change your life dramatically, but it looks like it could also help his basketball game. Glad to hear Beasley is more focused and serious about playing ball. A good read.

I was in favor of not trading Beasley at first, then I switched to wanting Bosh and now I'm leading to keeping Beasley again.

The guy will be a star, I really don't think you can deny that. No average player comes into the league and puts up 14 and 5 in 24 minutes a game. He will be a great player and I hope we hold onto him.

I want to keep Beasley also, but if getting Bosh early before someone else gets him in 2010 is what it takes to keep Wade happy & sign an extension... I'm all for it.

Too many teams have made moves this offseason... if the Heat goes into next season with the exact same roster... there is actually a chance Wade could leave.

Check the site frequently (daily) but don't post to often. Probably should, Heat need more representation on here.

Yeah, I'm sick of being the only one sticking up for our players.

Constantly defending Beasley on there. Apparently he sucks, and any rookie can average 14 and 5 in 25 minutes... News to me.

I disagree with both the pro- and anti-Beasley crowd. In reality it is too early to tell how much his game will improve. He certainly has the potential but...

...I want to see how much he improves into this and next season.

Since I think Miami can land a Bosh or Amare anyway in 2010 (Pat Riley knows how to "wheel and deal") not sure why giving up on Beasley too soon is such a good move.

All am going to say on the subject is anyone who Judges a player after 1 season is an IDIOT.
It takes at the very least 3 years to know.
