He could be successful as PF in the nba but understand this, the competition in the nba is many times better than that of college and Beasley is quite light and thus strength will be an issue against nba PFs. He won't get the rebounds he gets in college that's for sure, unless he's a freak like Marion

Have you ever seen beasley play? He is 6'10" and has an unstoppable post game and is the best rebounder in college hoops. How do you figure him as a small forward?

Yeah, he's a PF for sure. 20 rebounds per game is insane on any level. He will be dominant against NBA bigs.

Fuk do you know, being a fool again.

Seen highlights of Beasley and he looks real good but I was going by the weight more than anything. The nba is much more competitive than college and it will be something to see Beasley or anyone his weight be a great rebounder in the nba, especially against the likes of Duncan, Dwight, Amare etc

But he won't have to play against Duncan or Dwight everyday. I mean, everybody has trouble against those two... but they are the exception, not the rule.

btw, I don't consider Amare to be on the same level as Duncan or Howard. Not even close.

Just haven't seen a player that is that light be a great rebounder in the nba. Bosh and Garnett are the lightest that have done the best in that respect that I can think of.

Amare is definately at the level of Dwight and maybe even Duncan, who turns it on only when it is needed. Amare has put up better numbers in the past and is getting better lately as well

Jamison, Camby, Chandler, and Marion are all putting up double digit rebounding numbers at Beasley's weight. Horford and Biedrins are basically Beasley's weight and are putting up double-digit board numbers. Dennis Rodman, Moses Malone, and Bill Russell weighed in at 215 pounds apiece. KG weighed 220 pounds when he was younger. And let's not forget there's nothing preventing Beasley from bulking up like most big men do in their first couple years.

Amen, pest. And anyone who thinks that getting 15 rebounds per game isn't gonna translate at least somewhat to the NBA isn't thinking clearly. At the peak of his career, I can see him as possibly 24 and 12.

Well pointed out but in recent times, there have not been that many and according to player profiles, both Horford and Biedrins are close to 250 pounds, Beasley is listed at 225 pounds

That only means he won't be able to rebound using only his bulk. However, he has major athleticism and will be able to rebound using that. Look at Brandan Wright! He uses hops and athleticism to grab rebounds. Also, I'm not sure what site you are using to look up stats, but Biedrins is only 230 pounds (and he gets 10 RPG).

Biedrins looks about 230 pounds but he is listed at 245 punds amazingly enough. Be good and different to see a 6'9 225 pounder get alot of rebounds in the nba

We're talking about rebounding and Millsap is also much heavier than 225 pounds :wink:

If you want an example of someone able to rebound better than anyone else, Dennis Rodman was only 6-8 and 225 lbs (as Pest pointed), and he's been one of the better rebounders of all time.

It's not that hard to find examples of players able to do well with those conditions. Grabing boards is not only about weight and/or height. Look at Perovic, 7-2, 240 lbs and still unable to secure rebounds against smaller players.
