Wade: Beasley ‘most talented guys in the draft’
The Miami Heat selected Michael Beasley with the second overall pick of the 2008 NBA Draft, passing on players who have been on All-Star teams and have won gold medals such as Kevin Love and Russell Westbrook. O.J. Mayo has also become an established scorer this season.
“I mean those guys are the future of the NBA,” Wade said of the 2008 draft class. “But I think when you think about in the position we were in, we took one of the most talented guys in the draft. Michael Beasley is very talented. His career hasn’t gone the way the other guys’ have, for whatever reason, but I thought we made a good pick.”
