"...3. Which sophomore would you rather have: Michael Beasley or Danilo Gallinari?Pass...
Abbott: Beasley might be one of the only potential future MVPs who can be had on the cheap. But Gallinari is one of the biggest and best spot-up shooters in NBA history, and he plays some D, too. Any team could use a guy like that. Another question: What's more likely to go haywire: Gallinari's back or Beasley's judgment?
Broussard: Beasley. His talent is greater than Gallinari's and though he's got a long way to go, he's showing signs of maturity. Gallinari's a great shooter, but Beasley's got more versatility.
Ford: Beasley. He's a more complete player. He rebounds, he can score inside and he doesn't have a bad back.
Hollinger: Beasley. Gallinari is a better shooter, but Beasley is the better athlete and has more ways to develop his game in the future. Additionally, there's the issue of Gallinari's back. Gallo will be a great shooter for many years, but Beasley is the only one of the two with All-NBA potential.
Sheridan: Beasley. I'll take the multidimensional player over the one-trick specialist every time, and it's a bonus that Beasley can shoot 3s, too. Plus, Gallinari gets attacked every night on defense...more"
Actually, I'll ring in on the Beasley/Gallo stuff. The idea that this question is even presented shows that Gallo has started to open people's eyes. Anyone with any sort of talent eye knew Beasley was a top 2 talent. Period.
But let's not get carried away, the guy is shooting 20% from three point range this season.
