Beasley: "I feel like we need a leader...I think I can be that guy."

28

Jerry Z's take on the Beasley "All Star Classic." A few of the more interesting notes: * Beasley did look noticeably slimmer. He said he played last season around 240 and now after a summer of experimenting with ballet and yoga is about 225, a change he said is intended to help him prolong his career. "I never had fat," he said. "I’m just more prepared now." * Anthony Randolph looks a little thicker after a prolonged summer spent working out. You can see he’s more defined, but he’s still a skinny dude. It’ll be interesting to see how much Rick Adelman plays him at center. Adelman certainly will have options because he can play Love at power forward and center, Derrick Williams at both forward spots and Randolph at all three frontcourt positions. Beasley’s weight loss – and the additions of Randolph last February and Williams in the draft – suggests he’ll play almost exclusively at small forward now. "I feel like we need a leader," Beasley said. "We’ve got a young talented group and all we need is the right coach and the right floor general… "I want to be, I think I can be that guy."
