Miami Heat: Could Michael Beasley Debut With Chris Bosh Out?
The Miami Heat enter their fifth game of the NBA regular season tonight as they visit the Toronto Raptors. Chris Bosh will not be in attendance against his former team as he remains in South Beach with his wife and their newborn.
Could this be Michael Beasley’s night?
We have yet to see the vindicated Beasley play this season, and I am getting a bit antsy. I want to know if he really is a changed man or if he is still the same underachieving punk that Pat Riley ousted three years ago. I wasn’t the biggest fan of Riley’s decision to give Beasley a second chance, but it happened. I didn’t think Beasley would stay out of trouble or make the roster, but it happened. After he averaged solid numbers in the preseason in limited time, I want to see if he can ball and mesh in the regular season.
This couldn’t be a better time for Erik Spoelstra to play the former Kansas State Wildcats player. Toronto doesn’t pose much of a threat to the defending champs, so why not take a chance in the absence of Bosh? This early in the season, it is okay to take chances. It would make sense, considering Miami will be short a frontcourt player. Beasley is considered a small forward, but at 6-foot-10, he can step in at the power forward. His long arms and quickness allow him to play up.
Don’t be surprised if there is a Beasley appearance tonight. If he does make his debut, Spoelstra might find out something new about his team and Beasley may get the chance he has been looking for.
