Beals combine measurements are :
With shoes = 6’4 3/4 (w/shoes), 210 lbs.
We've talked about this a lot, but despite his measurements, beal just looks tiny out there compared to other 2 gaurds (and has gotten blocked enough times to show it). I think i may have figured out why:
While beal measures out, i think part of the deception is because he has very narrow shoulders and a VERY SMALL FRAME thats just more filled out with muscle than most other 19 year olds in his draft class who look skinnier (ie. lamb, rivers). His shoulders look wide, but its really just muscle filled around a narrow, fully filled in frame. IMO beal is done growing, like a kid who started lifting weights too early. I dont think he'll be able to put on much more weight. Also Remmember muscle weights more than fat, so the 210 is probably accurate. He has small feet, a small head, and very long arms. (in fact his arms are what give him his length)
kawai leonard, waiters and joe johnson were much bigger than him, and it showed on the court.
Also his team at UF was VERY small, so it made him look bigger on film.
While beals got game, im really nervous he'll be too small as a 2 guard in this league.
