Heat finishes big, thinks small with Beasley

Full story: South Florida Sun-Sentinel

So how do find minutes for emerging rookie forward Michael Beasley with trusted veteran forward Udonis Haslem about to return to the lineup? You start thinking small.

uummm ... he IS a power forward

he is too slow to guard true 3's

and has too many defensive deficiencies to guard true 3's

if you think that Beasley can guard players like Lebron, S Marion, C Butler, C Anthony, D Granger and others ... then this is ROCKET SCIENCE for YOU!!

I think playing Beasley at small forward "at times" is not a bad idea. He can bang out the smaller 3's and also out rebound them. He is also faster than must 4's. So really you have yourself a match up nightmare, if Coach Spo uses him in the rigth way it should work. Good Luck Heat!! D-Wade & Beasley...Batman and Robin!!!
