Thanks for reading.
Erik Spoelstra has been beat up by some fans about how Michael Beasley has been handled.
So, I decided to do a little research and this is what I came up with.
The table below shows you the success rates of the 5 man units the Heat have. The top 2 units w/ the best WIN % both have Haslem on the floor instead of Beasley. The top unit Michael shows up on is the 3rd best unit.
In spite of that Erik still plays Beasley the 2nd most minutes in the game behind Wade.
Top Five-Man Floor Units
Below there's a chart which dictates how effective guys are on the floor. Beasley is by far a more superior talent than Haslem, but he has a worse NET production than Haslem in more minutes and OVERALL RATING (which is a current effectiveness evaluator) the difference is marginal.
This also shows that Erik is truly working with a sub par group overall.
It also could lend that Charles Barkley's assessment of the HEAT (Wade and a bunch of TITO JACKSON'S) may be accurate.
