Oh my goodness,my hope for the Lakers to get him are gone. Now the Heat are stacked. Coming off the bench:Beasley,Allen,Cole,Oden(if he can play),Andersen,Battier,Anthony,Haslem.They're frickin deep right now. They have also a decent replace for Lebron at Sf(Beasley).

this is a good sign for them. i like it better than Oden. Mia like to play small alot which is a good system for him, they wont need to rely on him alot and anyone could use a guy off the bench who can score in bunches.

there is the risk hes going to lose his mind in south beach, but on that team i think the reward factor is worth it.

Told ya.

I will go out and guarantee he has his best season of his career this year (from an efficiency standpoint) and that him coming to the Heat will be looked at as a success. This was an easy signing. The people hating on this move are mostly just hating on either Beasley or the Heat. The Heat fans that don't like the move...SMH...I hope yall are man and women enough to admit you were dead wrong when he drops 40 pts in a game this year on good efficiency and he and Lebron are clicking. If he balls out, he could be the biggest reason for Lebron staying in Miami. Don't forget to thank Beas when all of this happens.

Battier-Haslem
Bosh-Oden


Well ****

Absolutely fantastic signing. Now on top of the Big three, they have 2 guys who can score at will off the bench in back court (Allen), and stretch the court (Beasley). He'll have a very, very efficient year. On the other teams, he was focused on. That ain't gonna happen here lol

Beasley coming off the bench with a clear define role, is pure gold; Wade, UD plus Spo will make him feel at home. Miami will have two feel good stories before all is said and done, Oden & Beasley.

I think the reason this is different is the Heat already have a winning team and culture in place, and three of the top players in the world. Nobody in that clubhouse is going to take guff from Beas. Also this is probably the first time he'll be called upon as a role player and not a lottery pick. I won't be surprised if he's relished to mostly catch and shoot on the offensive end. Basically if he buys into their defense, there is no way i see this not working.

we were pumped that we got him for 2 second rounders, and he even started his first year in Minny showing some scoring prowess. Then got hurt, and sulked, and never worked on his game. The dude doesn't love basketball is his problem. He uses his natural gifts to pay for his weed/cars/etc.

As a Heat fan these are moments that i will relish, Pat Rileys efforts must not be taken for granted.
This does not mean anything, with Oden and Beasley not guaranteed to succeed in Miami. I find it impressive how Riley just continues adding and retooling the Heat. I dont believe Ive seen any organization do this as consistently as the Heat over the past 4 years. If successful, Oden and Beasley addtions can be that youth that Miami lacked behind the big 3.

Because lets be honest, the guy isn't a leader, doesn't care about legacy, isn't a guy to build a franchise around and rarely does he give 100%. I looked back at his stats. His second year in the league he shot 80% from the stripe. His 4th season with MN he shot 64%. To me that points to someone who just shows up and doesn't work on his game to get better. The guy is what he is.

MN had to rely on him to put up 25+ a game, and be a leader on the floor, and be efficient while doing it. Well we know he's definitely not a leader, and once he becomes disenchanted, your not going to get the best game out of the guy.

Now put him on a team like the Heat where there are 3 players better than him, including the best player in the world, and championship aspirations, well I think that will be a positive enforcement to dedicating yourself to the game as anything. Dedicating himself is all he needs to do. Watch Chronz, I personally guarantee he is successful there.

Hopefully they learned that he is useless at SF and needs to play PF strictly. Stretch 4 in Miami would be killer.

Closing line up of

Wade
Allen
James
Bosh/Beas
Oden

Should we crown then already. Seriously though I wonder if they hope he pans out at PF that way they can trade Bosh or let him walk.

Wouldn't call Mike terrible because when you compare it to other NBA players he doesn't come close to that . He's just a head case like JR Smith . If Beasley wasn't the 2nd pick he would get as much flack as he does . I hope this year in Miami helps him realize he needs to work on his game more than I think he has .

Heater4life
09-11-2013, 05:55 PM
Also, do you guys think with Beasley on the roster (if he is dedicated) the Heat will have more continuity among the reserves? If productive within his skill set, can he fill Bosh's flex foward role on offense, providing needed spacing while Bosh rests?

He's terrible.

Im not as delusional sounding as some of the other HEAT fans about his signing but i do view it as a good thing.

Realisitcally:

Rashard Lewis fits better on this squad and i rather have him get the minutes than Beasley as beasley isnt as good a shooter from 3 and quite frankley the heat dont need mid range shooters to clog up the lanes for lebron/wade/bosh.

So i see him riding the bench to prove he can be a team player and if he gets any playing time its because he works his *** off in practice. I see this more as a move for next year to have his bird rights because lets be honest Ray, Shane, and Lewis are probably retireing after this and the HEAT need some youth.

Essentially Beasley will be trated like a rookie again having to earn his playing time and not being guaranteed anything.

But at 25 he still can be a servicable reserve for the heat at worst. regardless if hes passionate about ball or not his natural talent will make him a decent serviceman off the bench for next year when we need the depth and replacement.

Optimistically:

He realizes this is his last chance to even make a roster again if he doesnt show the league he has changed and works his but off in practice and gets minutes to where he is a consistent part of the 2nd unit.

yeah dude didn't he score around 20 ppg for you guys one of those years? Where'd that go.

early on, he was scoring 22 a game fairly efficiently. He ended up around 19 a game on well below average efficiency. Too many long 2's and inability to draw fouls just killed(kills) him. Plus he was always hurt, which goes back to me saying I don't think he takes basketball serious. He doesn't keep his body ready and in shape to carry a load.

I mean, the year you guys are praising his 19/45% crap, he has 1.7 total win shares in 73 games. That is putrid for someone taking that many shots.

I disagree with Rashard being a better fit. Unlike all of our other 3pt shooters, Beasley can actually pump fake, go to the hole and finish above the rim. The Heat have a bunch of guys that can sit out and hit 3's, the only problem is, that is all they can do.(Allen Excluded) Sometimes when the Heat face a great team, like the Pacers/Spurs, those teams are trump tight on there rotations and noone can get an open three. And because none of them can put the ball on the floor and go to the hole, in those situations the Heat end up not getting a good shot. Beasley is a very skilled multidimensional player and the Heat need that. Beas just hasn't worked on his game since he left Miami.

Not true thats just what they are told to do. Lewis didnt become an All star just from being a stand still shooter. The HEATs system needs them to do it because it spreads the floor if they were to pump fake and drive it in they would just collapse on him which is why the only guys that really do that are the big 3 because they can break down defenses (but then again bosh loses or gets stripped driving a lot too)

I rather have Beasley or any of the role players pass the ball to get it to lebron or wade to drive than to take it upon themselves. So Lewis is a better fit and he showed a few times he can put it on the floor and post it up like in his seattle days but im sure spo had a few words with him about not doing that so much because like i said they have lebron and wade for that.

Where Beasley can be better than rashard though is on D if he buys in. I say that because hes younger and more athletic and can help rotate faster as thatw as Lewis weak point and why he didnt get much PT. But that depends on Beasley buying into Defense.

In the end i think he will ride the bench and used spareingly and maybe resigned next season for cheap again. Which isnt bad as we will have a lot of holes to fill with UD getting old and 3-4 other guys being FA or retireing.

I kinda get that same impression. He has all the tools: huge hands, ambidextrous, solid rebounder, versatile scorer.....but I think he cares more about having fun than working too hard. I hope Lebron tells him how much fun it is to win a championship, and that if he ever wants to redeem himself from being one of the biggest busts in history, he needs to take his head out of his ***. Something tells me Beasley's response would be somewhere along the lines of "fa sho", but in his head he'll be saying "I don't care what people think, stupid....i'm rich." That's the difference between him and someone like chalmers, who still makes a lot of mistakes, but prides himself on being a hard worker and a winner.

09-11-2013, 06:32 PM
Here's my take as a Suns fan.

For Miami, it's a good signing. As people mentioned, low risk, high reward. He is capable of scoring for sure.

The problem with him is, he has so many mental lapses. He doesn't know where to be on the court, he's not a smart defender, he doesn't take good shots, etc.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wmri0QZYKks

He couldn't get it together as 'the man' on an extremely low pressure situation in Phoenix, even when he received a ton of minutes. When he has a lack of consistent playing time, it will make it that much more difficult for him to figure things out.

Could it work? Of course, but he's already played with Wade and Chalmers as well as for Spo, so I don't know how much more a LeBron and Bosh would help.

I hope he signs the deal (guaranteed) because I want to shave the million plus off of the Suns remaining deal with him. After that, I could care less if he is rejuvenated and becomes a stud or if he fizzles out and finishes his career in China.

Yea im sure hes heard that lecture everywhere he went. The HEAT should jsut try re defineing his role on basketball because like Hawkeye said hes just not motivated to be the 2nd pick calibeur player but that doesnt mean he cannot be useful and play ball still.

There are plently of other important roles he can fill. I think one of the best might be UDs role where Beasley will be asked to be an enforcer who rebounds and hits the mid range at a high clip. UD used to be his mentor too and had his locker right next to him so it makes sense.

No way. I don't buy this at all because Allen had a lot of success driving to the hole. and he did it all year. The point of Lebron drawing double teams and kicking it to someone is so they get a wide open shot. If a guy is closing to fast to get a shot, then a b-ball player should be able to take advantage of a guy sprinting at you and just step to the side and go by that person. Your saying you want them to wait, pass the ball to Bron, and have him go score. That does nothing for Lebron. He shouldn't have to put shoes on guys, tie the laces, and take them off for them too. Beasley wide open down the lane after beating a guy that overcommitted because of lebrons previous penetration is a great situation, and if lebron sees one of his teamates yamming down the lane, thats gonna make Bron happy that hes not the only one doing it, or the only one that can. You can't depend on Lebron for every drive to the hoop. And Ive seen both Rashard and Battier take it to the hole last year, and it wasn't pretty. Ray was the only one 3pt shooter they had who could effectively get to the hole too. If the rotations are tight, then they are gonna want there 3pt shooters to drive past the charging defensemen. Thats basketball man.

!st bold: Nope i want them to move the ball for the best available shot. Beasley as SUns and Minny fans have also attest to doesnt take the most high % shots hes kind of a chucker. And he dsoent have the best handles to drive which is why its left to the guards like Norris, chalmers, wade, lebron, or ray (bosh is the only exception and we see how he gets stripped 40% of the time)

Like i said Lewis was a All star beasley hasnt even gotten close to that. And they are like the 11 and 12th man so this is liekly a mute discussion. But low risk high reward indeed.

If he cant find a role on this team, his NBA career is done. He is surrounded by a winning organization, top tier teammates, and familiarity with Riley, Spo, Wade, Chalmers, Haslem. If he doesnt play smart, hes not seeing the floor. He wont be a chucker because he wont get the playing if thats the case.

Beasely isn't a heel either. I also believe this is his wake up call to grow up and take control of his career. If it works, think about how good it makes Riley look that they gave him a second chance when the former #2 overall wasen't worthy enough to be part of the championship culture Pheonix was trying to build. If it doesn't then thanks for trying. But Miami is going to need him with Brooklyn, Chicago, and Indiana breathing down their necks.

Battier is coming back next season, no? He's a veracious locker room guy and smart a player as they come. Maybe some of that can rub off on Beasley. Just another reason i think this is potentially a good fit.

Good move for Miami. Not much to lose and if Beasley can find himself, that would be a huge addition.

You'd think guys like ray Allen as wade will be able to keep him in check. That's not a slight to Lebron but I just see those other 2 guys as better player managers

Wouldn't it be great if Beasely & Oden won a championship this upcoming season (and they actually contributed) ... I mean that would be one of the best, feel good sports stories of the year (i don't know if KD & rose fans would like it, but everyone else might (of course not HEAT or Lbj haters)) .

As a Heat fan these are moments that i will relish, Pat Rileys efforts must not be taken for granted.
This does not mean anything, with Oden and Beasley not guaranteed to succeed in Miami. I find it impressive how Riley just continues adding and retooling the Heat. I dont believe Ive seen any organization do this as consistently as the Heat over the past 4 years. If successful, Oden and Beasley addtions can be that youth that Miami lacked behind the big 3.

I agree completely.

I said that I didn't think Beasley had what it takes to be a professional on a championship team, but Pat Riley believes otherwise... and guess what? I never question The Godfather. If Riley said so, I believe it. He is not a perfect GM, but this guy is underrated by many fans of other teams. He is the reason we kept Wade and got LeBron and Bosh and has built this great roster that keeps improving every year.

So to sum up the off season:

-Miller
-Howard
+Beasley
+Oden

Not bad, not bad at all.

beasted86
09-11-2013, 10:55 PM
Also, do you guys think with Beasley on the roster (if he is dedicated) the Heat will have more continuity among the reserves? If productive within his skill set, can he fill Bosh's flex foward role on offense, providing needed spacing while Bosh rests?

I don't really like Beasley+Bosh unless we are playing certain teams because that is a poor rebounding front court without toughness. But I can grow to really like Anderson + Beasley off the bench. Nice combo of offense/defense, finesse/hustle.

10 man rotation:

PG: Chalmers / Cole
SG: Wade / Allen
SF: LeBron / Battier
PF: Haslem / Beasley
C:: Bosh / Andersen

This signing should be taken lightly like most are doing especially of they get thru to him , that's what scaring me about this team.

Spot on. Miami won't be "ruined" if this turns out to be a fail. Beasley came wanting to play for Miami. He knows the situation coming in - so does Miami. One mistake and you can best believe Beasley will be done because of his contract. What I really don't understand is why people think Heat are just an average team. They know what they have to do to make everything work. Check back all the way to signing James and Co. Take it back to Battier, Mike Miller, Ray Allen, Chris Andersen, and Greg Oden. Back at ISH, not a lot of people agreed with the Chris Andersen signing. What do you know? Greg Oden, if he's not playing, he'll be sitting in the bench like Juwan Howard was doing. No risk. So yes, James is their long term goal and he probably wants Beasley on the team.

I'd say 50/50 with Beasley at minimum. I personally feel its about a 95% chance that Beasley is going to be a success. With his level of talent, playing on the court with Lebron, Wade and Bosh...to me its almost impossible for a guy of his ability to play with those three and not play well.

Well for a recap here's what I personally said:

I don't want him, but if the HEAT sign him I would have no choice but to root for the kid again.

He has some talents, but I feel his head isn't where it needs to be to take on a role and help a team defend it's title. If there is a team that would keep him on a short leash and disciplined it would be the HEAT or Spurs though.

I just think the article is reaching though. Can't see them bringing Beasley back with all his off court issues and disregarding the hard work and professionalism that Battier and Haslem show and him taking their minutes.

So now that hes is on the HEAT again, we are going to root for him of course. Also like I said, I expect the HEAT to keep him disciplined and in line. If he is able to prove that he is worthy of minutes over Battier and Haslem through hard work and effort, then let him play. Furthermore, I think all HEAT fans here trust The Godfather. If he says that Beasley is worth the risk then we trust him above everything else.

This. But with a less conspiracy theorist angle.

Miami is where he started career, had his best seasons as a pro, and where he spends his off seasons. I'm sure people around the league know he wants to be in MIA and/or never wanted to leave.

Perhaps a return to his former stomping grounds give him the motivated and dedication to regain his old form. Or he can embrace the party culture fully and fall even deeper into the dregs of the league.

He's never going to take half of these shots with Miami. Most of these were low efficiency shots.

Hes going to get back to basics and play to his strengths with Miami. Pick and pop/roll off the guard/LeBron pass, transition scoring, iso post up on smaller SFs, spread iso-faceup against bigger slower PFs, and he won't be taking many 3s unless they are in the corners.

He won't be initiating his offense 30 feet from the basket then pulling up for long contested jumpers like he was here or he will be benched.

I think the Beas trade was to clear up more cap space to grab Mike Miller, not LBJ. But I agree, if LBJ had stayed in CLE, i think Beas would have never been traded. Crazy though, Beas traded and Miller signs, two chips later and several health questions about Miller, Miller is gone and Beas is back. It's like Pat plans this stuff.

If I was Miami I would force this team to show me they cannot three peat before adding a one dimensional, medicore isolation scorer and a 7 foot post anchor. It just goes against everything the Heat have done these past to championship seasons - spacing, small ball, surround LeBron with nothing but quick decision efficient shooters. Now you throw a guy who wants to hold the ball and iso you up, and add a guy who's gonna park in the paint and can't space the floor. Why so much change to a proven formula?

I'm pretty sure Oden will not be part of the regular rotation and will be used as a specialist much like Joel Anthony was to defend Hibbert and some of the other Centers come playoff time. For reference Anthony played 9 minutes per game and only 62. The minutes seem right, but I don't see them playing Oden 62 games, it will be a lot less even if he is healthy.

Beasley on the other hand won't be used anything like he was in Phoenix or Minny. He shot 47% his rookie season for a good reason. Spo knows how to limit and discipline Beasley.

MJ the GOAT had it happen twice by two short, dweeby looking white boys. There has never been a championship won in any sport that didn't heavily involve many a good fortune (or luck) heading their way.

Hate Lebron all you want. I'm just glad to hear people consider one of my sports teams as a top 3 team all time. Nice.

The truth hurts sometimes, And trust me, my life is great. How's your laughable degree doing?


I don't hate Lebron, just the kids that claim him the be god. Lebron is the most over rated athlete of all time. He needed Ray Allen too hit the most clutch shot in history to keep him from a 1-3 finals record and another choke job.

only if you believe that. his wins/shares says differently.

He's the best player on the planet right now. I'm sure Jordan had the same fan fare when he was at his peak and there were people like you saying the same old thing. history repeats itself.

Exactly, how many times did Horry and Fisher save Kobe from winning a championship by a big shot at the buzzer. Its basketball, big and crazy shots happen all the time. You can claim if it weren't for Parker's huge shot on his knees that the Heat could've ended it earlier.

Lebron needs all the help he can get, he needs to have a top 3 team all time to win a ring.

Why not number 1? Let me guess Mj bulls have that spot; but would that mean by your logic that Mj needed all the help in the word plus refs.

**** if everyone agrees, I'll be happy to say that the HEAT are the greatest team ever... I don't give a **** about Lbj needing help, all I care about is the HEAT organization winning rings.

Lbj is a con-artist anyway.

Tip my hat to Pat he is making a great legacy. He had show time in LA as a coach and he took it to Miami as coach/gm. This heat team have great potential and looking forward to seeing them on the hardwood I hope they all stay healthy.

It's official now lebron has the most help ever. Not the best team ever but compared to the rest of the league lebron has the most help then any player EVER. He will still have trouble in the playoffs somehow. First player to have his hand held to a title.

U take James off the heat and there still a contender. You take off wade and lebron demands trade all year.

To realistic NBA fans: The best team wins and usually the best team has the best player.

To you: Disclaimer: LeBron James is not allowed to win without a team or else it would be invalid.

When you need an upgrade, you NEED an upgrade. Might as well try and find one, not like these moves cant be cut off if they aren't working.

To be honest NBA fans better PRAY these moves don't work out.

Most of them have either openly hoped or predicted that the HEAT's championship window would close as guys got old and retired/declined. If you inject a 24yr old Beasley along with 25 yr old Oden, if it works out, the championship window is blown wide open again.

Considering the money involved, I understand why they would do a 180 here. I'm indifferent to this news, but if he can contribute off the bench and not be so self-absorbed, then you surely won't here me complain haha.

No this isn't an excuse man. It has been stated on here many times by those who are for the Beasley coming that it was no risk for the min. And the not for Beas people consensus is that he was a cancer and could mess up the locker room. Money had nothing to do with it, there was no bargain price they would accept. And not one person said for the right price that was against it. Just say "those Heat fans just ride with the Heat and always think positive and if they think its wrong and the Heat do it, they will quickly convince themselves that its now the right thing so they can ride for Pat."

I honestly don't think adding completely different dynamics into a back-to-back champion is a prudent move. If I was Miami I would force this team to show me they cannot three peat before adding a one dimensional, medicore isolation scorer and a 7 foot post anchor. It just goes against everything the Heat have done these past to championship seasons - spacing, small ball, surround LeBron with nothing but quick decision efficient shooters. Now you throw a guy who wants to hold the ball and iso you up, and add a guy who's gonna park in the paint and can't space the floor. Why so much change to a proven formula? Gotta stay one step ahead of the curve I guess.....

No. Bulls added Ron harper and Tony Kukoch and then played there best basketball.

Also they already have proven to themselves that they can't 3peat when during game six every heat player knew they were going to loose. They kept trying and they got super lucky and won the game, but they had the feeling of being eliminated for about 1-2 minutes so they know they need some help. And with Oden, they are trying to address the inside. If you get outrebounded every single game, just because you win those games doesn't mean you still don't try to get better in your weakest areas. Bosh can't play center from the 2nd round on in the playoffs. If its not Bosh its gonna be Birdman or Joel. An Oden that can play is an upgrade over both of them. Beasley just dropped into there lap and just gives them great overall depth. They can really get guys rest now.

Playing for the Heat Beasley had better shot selection. 8/13 of his made shots in this 30pt outing were either solid midrange jumpers or takes to the basket. 5 of the shots were long range jumpers just shy of 3pt range.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=841U5P4Qytg

In Minnesota on a 42 point outing 7/17 made shots were effective midrange shots or drives. While 10 shots came from a less efficient range.

Its a small sample size, but in Miami I believe Beasley was guided to have better shot selection regardless of his tendencies to jack up ineffective, long range jumpers. Add in his new role on deeply talented team, I believe his limited opportunities will produce a more effective shot selection and overall better efficiency.

This is another example of Beasley taking more effective shots. Doesnt speak for every game he played in a Heat unifrom, but more so what will be expected of him.

Oh my goodness,my hope for the Lakers to get him are gone. Now the Heat are stacked. Coming off the bench:Beasley,Allen,Cole,Oden(if he can play),Andersen,Battier,Anthony,Haslem.They're frickin deep right now. They have also a decent replace for Lebron at Sf(Beasley).

Beasley is a bum he doesnt improve them in any way until proven otherwise

I don't really like Beasley+Bosh unless we are playing certain teams because that is a poor rebounding front court without toughness. But I can grow to really like Anderson + Beasley off the bench. Nice combo of offense/defense, finesse/hustle.

10 man rotation:

PG: Chalmers / Cole
SG: Wade / Allen
SF: LeBron / Battier
PF: Haslem / Beasley
C:: Bosh / Andersen

If it's small ball, Beasley and Bosh would be great together. I also think Beasley, if he can learn from the greats, will be a nice replacement if Bosh has to go for salary reasons. And if James bolts, I guess Miami won't be down to nothing.

yes, cuz what he does on the court has nothing to do with the game of basketball. If anything, watching how the Heat play and how the ball moves is the beauty of the sport.

Now you may say they are stacked beyond any team you have seen but with such great talent, all you're going to see is great basketball.

and I like how you say how Lebron has stacked the odds. what did he do? honestly. other than sign with the Heat

Michael Beasley made his preseason debut for the Heat in a 112-107 road victory over the Pistons on Thursday, tallying nine points, two rebounds and, reportedly, one massive headache.

The Miami Herald reports that Beasley enjoyed a successful night overall, minus a little over-eager self-discipline.

Upset with himself over missing a shot, Beasley started punching himself in the head while running back on defense. He punched himself so hard that he needed treatment after the game from the Heat’s trainer.

Oh Beasley...

Here we go, the guy who claims basketball is fixed when LJ wins, but when Kobe wins, it is because of how great he is. Give it a rest, who's paying you to make such inane statements? I bet you were having fun at LeBron's expense when Spurs were up 5 with 28 seconds to go. Or how about when LAL snagged Howard and Nash? And please don't lie and pretend that you were against signing Howard and Nash. About 99% of Lakers fans were begging for more help for Kobe since it was evident that Kobe couldn't win without a new and rebuffed roster. For all your accusations, there never seems to be one for Kobe. I really wonder, are you one of the kids back then who probably thought you were good but got dunked on by LJ? I really can't see why you aspire to hate someone as much as you do. It's as if your mother brought you along just so you can grow up and type nonsense about someone who doesn't even know you exist.
