Ive heard on Chicago's 670AM Radio the past few days people saying that Michael Beasley may be the next Charles Barkley. Im not asking for who do you think is better or anything, i just would like to know what everyone thinks about this and if u do think that one day Beasley will a Barkley type player. Maybe some differences as well.

Similarities are both are pretty short for their position (6'9") and are rebounding beasts.

Beasley won't be half the player that Barkley was. I don't think that he has the desire to be as good as Barkley was. I think people are seriously overrating this kid saying he'll be as good as a top 5 guy all time at that position.

Shouldn't be comparing a HOFer to a kid who hasn't played one game in the NBA yet.

They are different players. Beasley is listed at 6'9" but is really 6'8" 1/4, where Barkley was listed 6'6" but was often referred to as 6'4". Barkley is much more physical, and Beasley is more athletic.

Barkley was VERY short for a PF. he was 6'4 or 6'5.
Beasley is short, but still 6'7 or 6'8.

Barkley was amazing, one of the best power forwards ever, so I don't think Beasley would ever be as good. But the comparison is there because Beasley is a very versatile powerforward, kinda like Barkley.

The only similarity right now is the last three letters of their last names.

I don't know, hard to compare a 19 year old who has played 3 summer league games and one of the greatest players of all-time.

to the guys that said "barkley", he's asking if there's any resemblance, he's not asking who is better.

i say beasley will be a better scorer then barkley

Than Beasley will have to score 25+ a night for the coming ten seasons...
Which means Wade would become n2, and I just don't see that happen
