Exactly. He is gonna at least split the Center minutes with Trey, if not play more. That's a big difference from saying he is 1st round NBA talent.
Exactly, I wouldn't say he's a 1st round NBA talent yet. Well, let me take that back I would. He is a 1st round talent but he's not a 1st round player yet. Still has quite a bit of developing to do on the offensive skill set side.

Another "Beard won't play much" poster.
We've been hearing this for years right? And yet he continues to defy the odds. Hmmm... :-\...Beard is not great at one thing but he is pretty good at most. Those types of players find a way to get in the game.

Beard isn't a pure PG. I'm not even sure we really need him to be this coming year. The offense will be so perimeter-oriented. An offense tailored around a big like Moses Kingsley benefits more from a pass-first/true PG than one run by combo guards like Baford, Macon, and Beard. That's just going to be our look this year. Gafford won't be a major part of the offense. He's going to probably live off putbacks for the most part.

I see Beard being more confident and playing smarter as a senior. They may lead to the better A/TO ratio you mentioned. I see clutch buckets and the gritty play we've seen for stretches thus far. Beard is what he is, but again, former top 100 recruit. He can hoop. He's going to put it all together this year. He will be the heart and soul of the team.

Most teams benefit greatly with a ball handler who is a good set up guy. I think we would too. I know Macon would love if Beard was a penetrate and dish type guy.  If Beard at 6' tall wants to raise his next level value he would practice his assist skills this summer.    I know Beard is more of a combo guard but just saying we could use him greater as more of a pass first set up true PG this year.

I simply want to see smarter play/better decision-making from him. The rest will take care of itself after that. He doesn't need to be Jabril Durham. Barford is an ISO guy. His points are coming in transition or one-on-one. Macon has more of a spot-up element to his game, as all as slashing (needs teammates to be able to handle passes this year), but he's going to have the ball in his hands a lot. He'll be his own set-up man most of the time.

I'm on the Beard train as well. Your numbers don't lie, and I actually think he's going to make a leap this season. The combo of Beard, Macon, and Barford is going to cause series issues for opposing defenses. They're going to be fast, mean, and getting to the rim (when they don't kick it back out for three).

I don't know how anyone has watched Beard and thinks he can be a major contributor! Best he could offer is a few minutes off the bench but he's terrible. Wouldn't play on any other SEC team it's hard to see why he gets all the minutes he does.

South Carolina game last year was probably our best game of the year. A lot of it had to do with Beard being sick and not playing.

What's he good at? Is he a good defender? Is he a good shooter? Passer? Ball handler? Good at most if you have a low expectation. Can't run and can't jump isn't quick and is small. Best thing is to play the younger guys and live with their mistakes. Beard is a mistake a minute with no upside. He is what he is.

Yeah anybody that know basketball can't understand why Anderson plays the guy? You should have to earn your minutes?

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.  Beard is scrappy and a pretty good baller, considering his physical limitations.

What does he do good? Nothing, you say?
I've said it for years... Beard has the quickest hands of anybody on the team. I'm sure the coaches chart hands on balls and ball deflections.  I bet you anything that Beard leads in ball deflections per minutes played.

Naysayers will scoff, so there's no sense in us arguing about it at this point. It won't change anything. But remember I said it. And watch how many deflections and steals he gets this season. Dude has quick hands, I'm telling you.

Weakest link? He shouldn't play if CJ had all those minutes last year I wonder how good he would be?
I will agree he is scrappy considering his LIMITATIONS. Good baller don't agree at all. Just not good enough or talented enough to play on a SEC team. Watched him several times in HS and if I didn't know who he was wouldn't have noticed him.

No arguing. Least talented kid I can remember playing at the U of A. Be glad when he graduates and hope he gets his degree. Or maybe he will make millions over sea's. LMAO>

Whatever, man.  I'm sure he earned his minutes in practice.  We'll see how much playing time he gets this year.  I don't agree or disagree with your post in its entirety, concerning his abilities.  I wish he had more of a facilitator's mentality than a scorer's mentality.

Whatever we just disagree. I know what I have seen and while he has had some moments he doesn't really add anything..And that is JMO..

Not a big Beard fan I see :-\. He played pretty good against North Carolina. I'm just saying. Or did you even watch that game. He does need to play like that on a more consistent basis though. Rather you want to admit it or not, like I said he's not great at anything but he is pretty solid at everything.

Watched every second including when he had a fast break and couldn't dribble the ball. I hope you guy are right and Beard has a great season but have not seen anything to show me he's capable of being a good player.

I'm a Razorback fan so absolutely will hope for the best. IMO we need to move on and let the guys with actual talent and skill play.

The most improved Hog could very well be Arlando Cook. He came in with superb credentials and had a typical 1st year season for a JUCO. He will be much improved next year. The year that Macon and Barford had speaks of their vast talent. All 3 will be so good next season.

And I think that's what most posters seem to think. I was responding to the post that said people were underestimating him. I just haven't seen that.
i Don't think he is going to be as strong coming in as most think. he will have to get there quickly to meet some expectations . he will struggle early on with getting pushed around. hopefully he doesn't get frustrated easily and foul
