whoever takes him up top of the draft is going to be severely disappointed, dudes stats are overblown and he's getting overrated by the media.

He reminds me of Rodney Rogers but 100x better.

He reminds me of a Prime Derrick Coleman with a little mix of Glenn Robinson.

wow...somebody doesn't watch basketball...this is one of the deepest drafts in recent memory assuming the top freshmen come out - rose, beasley, mayo, gordon, bayless, donte greene, deandre jordan, budinger, augustin, collison, the list goes on and on...pay attention, damn...

The team will be severely disappointed not because he wont average his college numbers in the NBA but because he will clash with every coach he comes in contact with.

But like I said he looks like a solid 16/8 guy in his rookie year in Minnesota,he could maybe get it 20/10 at some point in his career but he has to grow up and make the effort to get better as a basketball player than as a physical specimen.

Most college players work out,get in shape,and work on their game,whether developing a mid range shot like Glen Davis did last season,or learning better footwork in the post under their position coach.

Mike Beasley hits the weights,and hits the weights,hits the weights,and then gets tatted.
Has anybody else noticed it from how his game hasnt developed other than what he does now since his SO yr in HS,but over time hes gotten more and more muscular and had 1 or 2 new tats each season.

Anyone else seeing similarity to Shawn Marion? He's got more skill than that, but with the athleticism that enables him to play like a big even though he's not really a big I see some similarity...or maybe Antwan Jamison. Tough to compare him.

Marion, Coleman, and Artest all have too many ball skills in my opinion. This guy can face up from about 15 feet, and blow by because of his quickness, but he's not ready to handle in open space yet, short of just barrelling down court. Rodney Rogers had too much three point game. That's about all he had for those last few years.

But everyone's got a point, they've all got some elements that Beasley seems to have.

I'm not sure I buy the 6-9 by the way. Anyone ever see him in person?

I've never seen Marion as a skilled ballhandler. Am I wrong?

Mostly youtube and a few of highlight clips.
I actually wanna say a lengthier Jamal Mashburn. But Mashburn wasn't as solid of a rebounder (although Mash did average over 7 in his Hornet days). But I'll go with Mashburn as my best comparison.

II didn't think Durant would be 6'9" either but he was a legit 6'9" at the pre-draft camp. As far as Beasley I've heard he's more lik6 6'7"-6'8". I like the Jamal Mashburn comparison a lot.

Beasley is a true 6ft8,I saw him on the court of one of his games at Oak Hill when he was a JR.
Im 6ft4 and he looked to be about 3-5 inches taller than me if we were side by side.

Im actually shocked they list him at 230 lbs,I really think hes in the 240-245 lbs range

Weight is often downplayed. Carmelo was already over the 230 he is now listed even at the 2003 pre-draft camp. Pretty cool you saw him in person though.

- Both 6'8
- Both extend to the 3 point range and have respectable %'s
- Both have a quick first step.
- Both like to pull up mid range.
- Both have interior scoring capabilty but prefer to face up
- Mash did seemingly play big in college and adjusted once he hit the NBA.


Again Jamal's ability to rebound may not be on par, but that is yet to be seen once Beasley hit the NBA.

Sidenote, Mashburn ended his career with the Sixers, Beasley will start his career with the same.:)
