06:15 PM ET 11.02 | The Phoenix Suns are still trying to figure out how to best maximize all of Michael Beasley's talent. The Miami Heat and Minnesota Timberwolves each had the same dilemma and could never find a workable solution. The Suns' approach, though? Make Beasley play more like New York Knicks star Carmelo Anthony. "That???s what I think about when I drive now," Beasley said. "Melo is quick but Melo doesn't always beat his guy on the first step. He'll drive and then he???ll hit you with the shoulder. You've got to foul him or it???s going to be a wide-open layup."

Look at you and your boy "lostwill", wonder how bad you feel because the Knicks won last night and Melo had a good game.
