Yeah, some people are overrating our team.
Beasley so far has looked like a natural scorer in the NBA. I honestly believe he wont have a problem matching the scoring ability of Aldridge (~17PPG)... if not surpassing that number in the next few seasons. The key is whether he will learn to be a good defender and rebounder. I think the Heat will atleast try and develop him over 2 years before they entertain any trades. He's still only 19 yr's old. He has the atletic ability to be very good, and can learn alot.
I really like Outlaw though. He's a guy I wouldn't mind picking up. I think he has potential to be a 15PPG, 7REB on a nightly basis once used as a starter in the our system.
