Agreed. TJ wasn't needed when they have Calderon on the bench.

And if Ford plays well, the Pacers have their point guard they've been missing since Tinsley came around.

Pacers don't have much else though.

you're nuts if you think beasley will only average 12 a game. at the very least he's good for 15 a game.

kevin durant was good for 20 and 4 this year... and beasley is a more nba ready player than durant.

and a lot more rookies, especially rookies who play the 4, average 20/10 than you think. elton brand did, tim duncan did. if you're expecting beasley to be an elite power forward, which i am... averaging close to 20/10 is not a stretch at all.

Either way it would be foolish for both Miami to pass on him for OJ Mayo. How did Mayo all of a sudden shoot up the draft board. He really didn't impress me watching USC play.

Apparently Miami's itching to trade out of #2...better get Donnie on the phone

i honestly think pat riley is playing this whole "we want mayo not beasley" card to try and convince the bulls, if they had any doubt, to take rose and not beasley. at least i hope so... if not then riles has lost it.

beasley is better than kevin durant. everyone loved durant last year, now they don't know about beasley. i don't get it.

Apprently its mostly carachter issues. I think they recognize that Beasley has incredible basketball skills, but are worried about him being too immature. I think that if riley is playing the bulls than its a pretty smart device. I guess we'll find out tonight.

And I honestly think you're a little too sure about Beasley.

If he was really Charles Barkley II or whatever do you really think the Bulls would be passing on him?

If a guy puts up the numbers he did in his first year in college, and he's not the consensus #1 overall pick, then there's a reason why, and whatever that reason is, the decision-makers for these teams are aware of it.

One cannot possibly be as sure about how a guy is going to fare in the NBA before he's even drafted as you seem to be about Beasley. He's not in the LeBron-Duncan 1000% sure thing category as you seem to think he is.

The Nets have traded Richard Jefferson to the Bucks in exchange for Yi Jianlian and Bobby Simmons.

Jefferson was the last remaining player from the Nets' 2002 and 2003 Finals runs. With this trade, there no more remnants of those teams left on the roster.

The Nets are clearly looking to shoot the moon here...either Lebron James ends up a Brooklyn Net or else epic phail.

Right, but John Paxson's a great judge of talent.

because john paxson is a fucking moron and one of the worst GM's in the NBA? that could be why.

why did portland and houston pass on michael jordan? i'm sure there must be a reason.

if beasley isn't a franchise player i'd be stunned.
