How far has Michael Beasley gone since his days in Miami?

The Miami Heat's free-agency success in recent years almost makes you forget they've actually drafted talent in the past few seasons. Newsflash: They drafted a guy who might be the most frustrating big-time college prospect in recent memory and a pair of young guards who quickly became assets on a two-time championship squad.

It's crazy to look back and see how far (or not that far) Miami's draft picks have come, and while LeBron James' infamous "Decision" brought Miami from rebuild mode to contender overnight, people forget that, for a time, Miami was supposed to be rejuvenated by a very talented freshman from Kansas State University. 

What most Miami Heat fans (these ones in particular) fail to recall is the fact an era almost emerged prior to the arrival of Chris Bosh and LBJ; of course, I'm talking about the Michael Beasley era.

B-Easy isn't the only draft prospect, however, but he's among our "Where are they now?" list of Miami Heat draft picks that should be accounted for.
