Depending on the offense ran in his prime he put up 22-24/10 rebounds. Wont be a franchise player but will be a more then legit scorer and will have his BIG games.

i think he's as sure of a thing as there is in this draft. i'd say at his peak he'll be averaging low 20's with 12 boards. it'll be fun to watch him and dwade together next year. he seems like a good guy and i think hes got the upper hand for rookie of the year.

20 and 12 career player, instant contributer, Glen Robinson-esque career, as far as statistics are concerned. Probably more respected and less slept on, though. I hope so anyway.

Beasley has potential to be a future MVP but I see him as a future All Star for now.

No way Beasley averages 12 rpg. I think he'll be more like a 25 and 8 guy in his peak and maybe a 22/7 guy for his career.

Default Re: How good do you think Beasley will be?

I think before the draft, most people were dead on with the glen robinson/carmelo anthony comparisons. I thought he might be a great scorer in the league but one who puts up 25-30 on a lousy team for his career. The best thing that could have happened to him did when the bulls passed on him and he got picked by the Miami Heat. Dwayne Wade and Alonzo Mourning (i assume he doesnt retire, but if he does i bet he will still help out with the heat) can help him out tremendously with his development. I think people are really underestimating this point. When Anthony was a rookie, his vetern leadership was Andre Miller, Voshon Lenard, and Marcus Camby. Not that they are bad guys, but they definitely arent the same type of leaders as Wade and Mourning. Glenn Robinson had no "leaders" of note on his rookie year team... unless you consider Vin Baker the leader at the bar.

Wade and Mourning will teach Beasley how to be a professional, what it takes to win, and how to become a leader. They will be great influences on him. It is a MUST that the heat get rid of ricky davis. He is not a good influence on young players. The same could be said of Shawn Marion, however I think he was just tired of the situation in phoenix and I do not think he would be a bad influence. Udonis Haslem is also a solid vetern, hard worker, who can teach Beasley a thing or two.

Had the Bulls pick Beasley, the leadership would have been Chris Duhon, Larry Hughes, Drew Gooden, Luol Deng (who is still very young)... none of which have the same impact as Mourning and Wade. Derrick Rose will be fine without that presence because he is a leader himself and already a mature person and player. Beasley, by all accounts, is not. I think Rose could have succeeded in either Chicago or Miami, I think Beasley's best bet out of the two for success is Miami.

Some people may disagree with me since the whole "South Beach" thing, but if you look at those leaders on Miami... Beasley is in great shape. I think the ceiling on Beasley grew when he was picked by a team with great vetern leadership. With the aide of those guys, he could end up being a 25 ppg guy on a championship caliber team down the road, as opposed to a 25 ppg on medicore teams like glenn robinson or carmelo.

It will be interesting to see if my thoughts on this come true.
