I will be the first to admit that I am not much of a basketball fan but being an all-around sports fan, I listen to a lot of talk radio. Lately the rumors have been running rampant about the Miami Heat tanking the season in order to get a better chance at the #1 draft pick. Word around town is that Michael Beasley will be that pick and just from the fan feedback alone, you would think this guy is the next Michael Jordan.
Of course, I have been one the wrong side of prospects before. I once spent $30 on this rookie card of the “next big thing” only to watch him go out year after year with injuries. I did the same thing after watching Allen Iverson play in college and while he has turned out to be one of the greatest of his generation, he is no replacement to M.J. So to any basketball fans out there: is Beasley the next Jordan?
I have scoured eBay a couple of times and can’t seem to find any true rookie cards yet so I am guessing his official rookie card has not been produced yet. You can expect me to pick up a couple of those when the time is right. I just hope his career is a little more successful than the guy below. I mean, sure the commercials were funny but it won’t help his Skybox skyrocket anytime soon.
