Wow you're an expert. and you came up with that how? have you even watched him play?

Mashburn is a good call, but he's got too much Point Forward to me too. I must admit, that in spite of his 3%, I really don't see him as a shooter. Maybe it's because he only takes about three a game, which at the college level isn't a ton. Or because he shoots under 70% from the FT line. I know that I don't trust his handle in a control the ball situation, which is different than his ability to break people down. He may be closer to Marion thinking it over. So whoever said that, good call (RMWG?).

I just read the name Laphonso Ellis, which I could see as a low end comp. Mid range catch and shoot is ok, going by guys is the first preference, and physically it's in his nature to crash the boards.

With the comparison to Marion is that Marion isn't great at creating off the dribble. Something that Beasley is highy touted for. Also Marion's ability to gaurd both the perimeter and interior. Beasley needs to put more commitment into defense. Granted, he's blocking shots now against lower level comp, like everybody says, we'll see what he does with larger more stronger opponents. isee the athleticism and the lengthiness but it stops there for me.

Records are set in 85-25 rout

January 8, 2008


Quote:
MANHATTAN, Kan. -- Kansas State set two NCAA records and tied another Monday night by holding Savannah State to one field goal and four points in the second half of an 85-25 rout.

"I've never seen that. That was crazy," Kansas State forward Michael Beasley said. "That just was not good."

Kansas State (10-4) hounded the Tigers on the perimeter and pushed them away from the basket from the opening tip, holding them without a field goal during a seven-minute span of the first half to build a 16-point lead.

But that was nothing.

Savannah State (8-13) missed its first 15 shots of the second half, falling behind, 72-22, and finished the second half one for 23 (4.3%) from the field, breaking the NCAA record for worst shooting percentage and fewest points in a half since the shot clock was first introduced in 1986.

The one field goal by Savannah State also tied the mark for fewest in a half.

So...a 'tweener forward is somehow going to be a better player than a guy that won an MVP award? Beasley has potential, could be a great player, but this is idiotic. Beasley won't even be better than Al Jefferson next year.

Jefferson is not even a franchise player he is just like the PF/C version of Ricky Davis ( Cavs Circa 2002-03 NBA Season). He is getting some nice stats because he is playing with a lottery team that has no chance to make it in the playoffs this year.

Beasley would be putting up better numbers than Al Jefferson nexts season, and he is certainly on the verge to become one of the bests SF of all time.

Beasley = No.1 scoring Option
Jefferson= Sidekick

You don't get 20 points and 12 rebounds per game by accident. You act like he's just chucking his way to stats when he's shooting 49% and only averages 2 turnovers. This is just ignorant. Kevin Garnett lead Minnie to the lottery for the last two years, and now Al Jefferson, at the age of 23, is supposed to do better with even less veterans?

How's Kevin Durant doing right now? Scoring average, rebounding average, FG percentage, all have dropped significantly. This is how it works: Statistics drop between college and the NBA because the NBA is tougher than college. And when's the last time a 19 year-old basketball player did better than 20 and 12? You'd have to go back to Magic. Beasley may become better than Jefferson in the far future but he won't be next season.

This comparison should be dead. Anthony is a far better ballhandler, doesn't shoot from distance nearly as well, and is in better shape.
