Who is going to be the better pro? And why?
Bmac because his game is taylor made for the NBA.
Anthony Bennett's game is not as NBA friendly but he's a Beast.... that happens to be his nickname, 'The Beast'.
Better prospect than TT. I will get a lot of Heat because people will be saying they are different players. Bennett has more perimeter skill and is more athletic, so, not entirely, but he will get a lot of buckets in this manner....
Has a nice looking jumper too. Curious if he loses more weight. I don't know if Bennett can guard peremiter NBA players frequently though.
Idk if he could ever start at SF but there is no reason to think that there is not potential for him to slide to the 3 on certain matchups.
It's actually something he is working on. Hopefully he doesn't cross the line and keeps his fire to play inside.
Like Siggy says every other post about Bennett, his potential is not as high as a full 3.
Bmac for me, he has a silky smooth jumper and is a great athlete, for me he will be a franchise player.
Bennett is a great force and is so strong physically, but we don't know his position and tweener's normally struggle in the league, still like him as a top 5 prospect
Bennett is a matchup nightmare at the 4. With a 7ft1 wingspan he wont play much smaller than the fours either.
McLemore. I like Bennett but he's not the top 5 prospect he's getting hyped to be right now. He's closer to 10, and B-Mac is top 3.
Yea, Victor Oladido is not a better prospect than Bennett.
Oladipo is ''getting hyped right now.''
Neither is Alex Len, who is getting massive hype.
Despite not being nearly as high on Len as most people, he still shows that at least he's a pretty skilled center while Bennett doesn't have a true position at this point. As for Oladipo, he is going to be the one of the top 5 players to come out of this draft.
What happens if he measures out to be 6'8 with a 7'1 wingspan?
He got big hands, crazy brute strength and great athlete. I think he can play the 4.
On a complete side note: Despite the poor defense, this video made me realize what kinda of athlete Bennett is. He's on a Faried level
some reason I put a lot of stock in tournament play. I am looking forward to the NCAA post season and conference tournaments. Then you find out what most of these players are all about.
The more I see of Bennett in conference play, the more I wanna drop him.
I honestly can't see how his value has risen after his out of conference run.
He also has a lot of bad attributes in his game that translate to even worse attributes at the next level. Don't be fooled by his mass and physique. He's softer than you think and he absolutely sucks on defense.
I agree he's not very good on defense. But he is not soft.
Search "Jane Bennett" on this site. UNLV fans are complaining about his softness. That isn't the first time I heard that word associated with Bennett either. For all that natural size and strength that he has, he doesn't know how to use those qualities consistently and he gets pushed around by guys much smaller than him.
I think that both of these guys are kind of risky prospects who will both end up going top 3.
I love Bennett. He isn't going to play out on this wing, he's a 4. He has a legit post up game, hes athletic, versatile, and even if he's a tad bit undersized, on most nights you will be fine because everyone is going small. I don't think he will be a super star calibur player, but I think he can be a year in year out 18-10 guy.
B Mac has A LOT of skill. I see the potential with him, and I think he will be a good player. But he does have a little bit of that Jeremy Lamb syndrome where he just seems way too complacent sometimes. Now I think he's a far superior prospect to Lamb, but it still worries me.
