ANthony Bennett again

this guy is a real deal..even more dominant game tonight 27pts 14rebs 3ast 3blk in ONLY 24mins..

it's scary to say but this guy could be even better version of Paul Millsap and even kinda poor man's Mr.Charles Barkley..

he just does it all he shoot handles he is strong long for his height and i would say he is even more athletic than Millsap with his explosiveness and even surprisingly good first step for a guy his size..and at the ssame time wasn't a shooter Bennett is now, he just developed it in the NBA i think..

and i remember someone said he can't rebound well.. idk 9rpg in 28mins looks pretty solid next to 2block per game..

history shows that those 6'9 6'10 athletic but raw and skinny combos busts much more than those "low upside" short but strong and ready fellas who actually usually surprises and becomes even better than expected..

possible top5 pick?

If he was 6'9 or 6'10, he would be a top 5 pick, people wonder how he'll guard 3s (not as fast) and 4s (giving up a couple inches).
He's looking like a late lottery pick though.

I will say it again, height

I will say it again, height does not mean what it used to. So many players have made it when they were considered short or undersized for their position. Jason Maxiell is 6-7 and he has had a decent career. with guys like Carmelo and Lebron playing the power forward, it shows that if you are tweener (they arent tweeners) you can probably play the PF because you need to be pretty quick to guard players like them. I am glad that someone finally said it. There have been many overachieving short and strong PFs. Kenneth Faried is another example, Trever booker, shawn Marion played PF a lot. dejaun blair. There are probably more than that There are countless guys that show how little height means. Now I just hope talent evaluators stop say this player is undersized, when really it is about skill and performance at the NBA level.

CANADA!!!

Can't wait for the 2016 Olympics. Canada's senior men's team could be a serious contender to medal, think about this potential lineup: Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, Xavier Rathan Mayes, and Kevin Pangos, throw in Sacre at the C. Tell me that line up wouldn't do damage.

Don't forget Joseph,

Don't forget Joseph, Thompson, Nicholson
Just because they arent stars in the NBA doesnt mean they cant do well in a short tourney, we've seen lots of low rung players, like Kleiza, do damage in the Oly

I think Nik Stauskas could

I think Nik Stauskas could potentially develop into a solid contributor for Canada as well.

He's not a Top 5 pick,but has

He's not a Top 5 pick,but has played his way into being mentioned as a possible late lotto pick...He still has too many flaws in his game to considered that high...His offensive game is still unpolished,but are improving with each game.....He has a 7-1 wingspan, great leaping ability and a nba body that can make up for his lack of height..

What impresses me most about him is his energy and the ability to beat defenders off the dribble....

^^

Actually your wrong, he actually has complete package offensively. He has decent 3 point range, he has adequate ball handling for 250lbs, he's not afraid to bang inside and can also hurt you outside. The only knock on him is he's 6'7-6'8 which puts him in a "tweener" position. He's easily a top 10 prospect to me, his upside is huge and reminds me a lot of Larry Johnson.

He really does look & play

He really does look & play like Larry Johnson ,but Johnson was more savvy & talented....Johnson was more of a creator,had a well rounded game,including a back to the basket and post game.....And despite being only 6'7 there were some that said he possibly could've been a top 10 pick,if he had came of of Jr. College...

If Bennett continues to improve he possibly can become a top 5 pick,by season end.....But right now,if you look at alot of the mock draft sites ,they have him in the late lottery to 20 range....
