I like Rose and his character but Beasley's talent can't be denied.

Beasley will take more of a beating and potentially have a shorter career because of it.  Rose will learn to run the show from out front and barring a leg injury will be able to have a longer career.  The character issue does come into play as well; if Beasley does not tone it down he will become in two or three years the player added in trades to other teams and that doesn't help his career at all---remember the city he is going to guys!!!

Rose, an even tempered and straight arrow guy---no issues will come from him---I'd bet on it.

So, skills being not all THAT far apart given the different positions, you add in the above, I take ROSE.

Probably Rose-- eventually he'll be a force in the NBA, for some reason PGs have a little learning curve when they hit the NBA, but he'll probably have one of the shortest learning curves ever for a rookie PG thanks to the offense they ran at Memphis. 


Beasley will do just fine too, but I just think Beasley will be a pretty good player, where Rose will be a special player 10 years from now.
