Do You Think Derrick Rose or Michael Beasley Is the Top NBA Draft Pick?

I really don't watch that much college basketball so I don't know much about them. Who do you think is the best out of the 2?

Dam... I mean I concur with dude. It all depends what Chicago wants to do as far as filling their needs. I think if Beasley went to Miami he would help with the scoring along side Marion, and Wade. Wade can bring the ball up, although his legs could use some rest so that's the reason he is pulling for Rose in Miami, and Beasley in Chicago. I think both teams can't lose unless they trade away their pick, and the player they trade for doesn't pan out. This is going to probably be the best draft since LeBron and Melo came into the league. Chicago could go with Rose, and hope that Tyrus Thomas finally has a break out year, but I don't see their patience being that thick. They could keep Hinrich, but Memphis has three guards that I believe are available via trade, but it all depends on who Chicago wants out of Javaris Critteron, Kyle Lowry, and that third dude. I think Memphis should, and would keep Lowry. Critteron is good, and probably could do big things in Chicago with Noah, Beasley, and Gordon. However, Gordon was disgruntled during the season coming off the bench. If Chicago, re-signs Gordon, they would have to promise him a starting position. I think Gordon might be wooed by another team with a lucrative contract. I think Beasley might be the top pick, because Rose is an unproven commodity. Even in the tournament Rose was held in check during the championship game by his Chicago peer who isn't even in the draft, or on NBA team radars. I think that will be, and must be look at. I don't see him being a better player than Gordon, but Gordon is probably gone. It's too early to tell. You have to wait and see how the tryouts go when they have Rose going against an NBA-caliber type player during pre-Draft workouts to see his potential in the league. Say he does become the unanimous top draft pick as suppose to Beasley. Other teams may covet him, and offer a package to get the number one pick to draft Rose. Right now, it is too early to tell. Alot can happen between now, and the announcement of the first draft pick of the 2008 NBA Draft.

i looks that derrick rose has done quite well with the bulls now that its 3 years later. now all rose needs is a good shooting guard with him and their all set to be among the top teams. derrick rose is an awesome point guard. if he doesn't make it in chicago then i know he will find a better team that will want him.
