Good to hear on Beasley

Hey, a Zo/Magloire/Joel platoon isnt gonna offer much offensively, but the Mavs got to the finals with that type of frontcourt, they played the Diop/Dampier/Mbenga platoon all 48 minutes at center except for maybe 5-10 a game when they went with Van Horn at center like we do with Haslem...... and all thier frontcourt offense was thru Dirk (a more perimeter-version of Beasley pretty much, not as good on d, not as athletic, taller, better shooter, etc).......

So we could do the same thru Beasley as our lowpost guy, or how the celtics did with KG and Perkins, or the Pistons with Sheed and Big Ben, none of those teams got much offense out of the center spot

If Beasley is giving us what we need there and getting liek 22ppg as the 2nd option, heck the mavs got to the finals with Dirk as their offensive guy and the all-stiff platoon at center just like we'll have, and they didnt have no Dwyane Wade like we do baby!!!!!!!!!

haha, seriously though, Zo/Magloire/Joel give you waht you need, we'll have enough offense with Beasley inside and Wade (BIW) as our #1 option, plus Marion is so much better offensivley when on the court with BOTH of those two so he can do his thing, and our roleplayers/shooters all do their thing plus we play great defense

As long as the centers set picks, give good energy, be bit of enforcers, REBOUND, block a few shots, and give us interior defense we are more than fine with that

just dont play Haslem at center much cuz its a recipe for disaster, kills our interior defense and our rebounding

The Heat arent really title contenders this year they are just alright but next season I think they will be title contenders again. This is a young team but are growing and getting better. Now the main focus is to keep Dwyane Wade in Miami. If Pat Riley can keep Wade in a Heat uniform then there will be another parade on Biscayne Blvd. However I heard there could be possible trade rumors between Shawn Marion and Carlos Boozer. Marion brings alot of energy to this team while IMO Boozer can be sluggish. But as for Beasley, he will only get better. In a few more years you'll see why Beasley was the #2 pick.

He is still a rookie... just turned 20... what do you expect?

...he will certainly improve.

Boozer does not have the size to play center and with both Beasley and Haslem pf is not a problem.
