I know this one!!! The answer is Zero.
I was kidding around with my Rose for Beasley trade before, while I do wish we had taken Beasley, we didn't, so it is time to put our faith in Rose.
The problem is everyone on this forum is fighting to prepare for their "I told you so's" If Beasley gets off to a hot start then all the Beasley supporters are going to go nuts, and the other way around.
Arguing right now for who is better, and stating it as a matter of factly as people are is dumb. There are obviously players that every team has passed up and they wish they could have had, but just because it happened before doesn't mean that Beasley will be an an example of this.
I know the bucks were brought up a lot and Boozer and Tayshuan have already been addressed.
Dirk was before the European movement in the NBA, where every GM got a hard-on about names they couldn't pronounce. Bucks passed on Chris Paul and Deron Williams because they drafted TJ Ford the year before, you can't hate a GM for not drafting the same position two years in a row. As for Bynum, can people seriously get off his c*ck, yeah he played well this year and he looks like he has a lot of potential, but can we see him do it for more than 3 months before we start using him as an example of draft Gem.
