I'm going with Beasley.

The NBA Draft is approaching and the #1 question is of course, who will be the #1 selection. Basically, Beasley or Rose? It surprises me that a big percentage of the public says Rose will be #1. Well, I disagree. It also surprises me that a huge chunk of that public believes Rose should be #1 instead of Beasley because of the colleges they chose. That's a flat out stupid reason to say that he should be #1. I just believe that Beasley is a more natural athlete than Rose. To go back to the college topic, who had the best team? Of course Memphis. Who had the best players? Memphis. I could choose anyone from the Memphis starting lineup and argue for them to be a top 10 pick. Thats why Memphis players such as Rose got more credit than Beasley despite winning freshman of the year. To see Beasley take and lead a very average Kansas State team deep into the tournament is special. We'll never know if Derrick Rose would be able to do that.
