Moon To Start Over Beasley?

WOW .... is this guy riding a high. Wherever Moon goes he automatically becomes a starter?

Beasley could fit on the court for Miami at small forward or power forward, but coach Erik Spoelstra would prefer to keep him at the four slot.

"Eventually Mike will probably be able to play some minutes at (center) when he fills out in two or three years, and he'll probably be able to play some minutes at the three (small forward)," Spoelstra said. "For the most part, I want to keep him pretty consistent at (power forward)."

Good, play him for 30 minutes per night and they'll see him bite on pump fakes, settle for jumpers, and passing up layups.

I think playing with Wade will help, he will staart out large.

Hey, hopefully for Jamario it was stay that way, he's not a bad guy, he was just not doing it here.

I really hope he does well, I'm not going to lie. As much as he wanted to make me stab myself in the eye at times he was a good kid and I definitely hope Miami's happy with him. The only guy who's left Toronto that I hoped would under perform was Vince, and that's only because he left on such a bad note.

nice avi ^^^^

anyways i think it will all work out for moon in the end. He will become pine rider pretty quick but he will provide energy and some enuthisum. Soon Udonis will get old and moon can play then

But beasly can also play the SF. So I think the Heat should try it putting Beasly at the three. It's not he is going to start over Udonis, so they might as well try that

It's not really a big deal if Moon is starting over Beasley. The thing for Beasley is that he continues to get minutes and that he continues to get crucial minutes in crucial games. He doesn't have to be the go-to guy or a guy playing a huge chunk of the game, the Heat just need to show that they have faith in him and that he is an important part of the team. It's all about development.

they want to make Beasely into a c/pf?

isn't he 6'8

should they make him keep the weight he has now and abuse guys the same way carmello anthony does? to me there very similar, could you imagine making melo in a pf/c everybody would be laughing ath them

this is huge mistake

by the way how long will it take moon from being in the starting rotation, then a bench player to being the guy who never plays, I'll give it a month, lol they don't know what there geting

Starting? Lol, I wonder how long that will last with Miami. I'm thinking not long if he keeps on throwing up bricks from 3 point land like he did in Toronto.

I really don't care... he is Miami's problem now... I'm more concerned how will Marion fit in Toronto.

There must be a Heat forum somewhere saying "Raptors will soon see what kind of player they got in Marion."
