Lately it seems the biggest point of contention on this blog is Beasley's productivity. Well if efficacy is what we aim to measure, then let's compare his stats to a former HEAT player who seems to be well regarded by most fans. Lamar Odom in his lone year in Miami averaged 17.1 ppg, 9.7 rpg on 43% shooting. These numbers, by most accounts, are fairly impressive. Enough so to draw league-wide recognition and an all-star bid. If we juxtapose Beasley's number we saw that he averages 16.2 and 6.8 rpg, while shooting 46% from the field. That yields a disparity of .9 ppg and 2.1 rpg while averaging about 5 minutes less per game. While I'm not lobbying for Beasley to be selected for an all-star birth, it would be foolish to utterly disregard his productivity as average, or right-off the potential that he yields. Every month he's seen a gradual increase in his averages, so why should we think that trend will abruptly change
