Default OK, Let's put this junk to rest...

Michael Beasley is 6'9" in shoes- he's a big 3, average sized 4. End of story. For those of you who still believe he's smaller than that let's do this- for arguements sake let's say Beasley is 6'7 1/2" in shoes- he's still big enough to play the 4- Charles Barkley one of the greatest PF to ever play the game was 6'5" (some say 6'4 1/2 others say 6'6") either way he was what is considered a very small four- however he out rebounded everone due to his will and outstanding positioning- traits that Beasley just so happens to share with Chuck.

Let's put this one to bed- Beasley can (and will) be a very successful 4 at the next level, regardless of height...

Don't forget Beasley is a freakish athlete.:)

Just a question...why is Beasley's size even being thrown into question, he is already bigger than most PF's in the league. You know the NBA is going to make him quite a bit stronger, and he is still 19, so who knows maybe he can grow a little more (not likely but still possible). And most people around here think drafting Rose and bringing back Elton Brand is the best option, well wait how big is Elton Brand...6'8". If Beasley is to small, then Elton is to small. Honestly I really don't think an inch or two is going to make a difference on the basketball court, especially with a guy like Mike who is going to be quicker than almost all the 4's in the league, and be able to jump with just about anyone in the league.

Now lets see what people say to this....

I also caught a sneak peek of Beasley's vertical jump test. He touched the 11-foot-9 mark on his running jump. Assuming he has a standing reach of about 8-foot-10, that's a 35-inch vertical. Not off the charts, but not too shabby, either.

First on the court even though he worked out last. Also a 35 inch vert really isn't amazing, but for someone who is 6'9", it shows what he will be able to do above the rim.

Have you ever seen Tyrus hit more than 1 NBA 3 pointer in a row?

Wait...have you ever seen Tyrus hit more than 1 jump shot in a row?

Beasley is way better than Tyrus man. Tyrus can dunk the ball. Beasley can do multiple things...dunk, shoot, post up, ect.
