Monster Jams from 17 Year Old Anthony Bennett
He will be Top 20 in 2012 Class when its all said and done.
You say this about every Canada prospect...It's annoying. Every single vid is about a Canadian player and how he is so underrated. He is the 20th ranked pf so I don't see him being a top-20 player anytime.
Ok well thats your opinion, if you dont see the tremendous talent he has I guess I will just have to say I told you so.
Kevin Pangos- Underrated
Kevin Thomas- Underrated
Anthony Bennett- Underrated
Kadeem Green- Underrated
the list goes on and on, there are so many underrated Canadian prospects. I gaurentee Im not just being biast. Not every single vid, Ive just been seeing some new vids Id like to share today. Dont hate, Im Matt Bonner!
PS Look at the screenname what do you expect.
There is underrated talent EVERYWHERE though. I'm glad that you're showing the vid, but than you say top-20 player. I don't see it. Yes, I see talent, but the 2012 class is filled with LOTS AND LOTS of pf's and c's and he I don't see him doing anything extroadinary to push himself into the top-20. That's all.
Oh, and to answer your question, I expect you not to be bias towards every canadian prospect. I live in America, I don't defend every American prospect. If I think that they are overrated, I say it and vice versa. The only time I am relatively bias is with prospects from my state, and I still complain about their weaknesses etc.
I am a really big fan of Kabongo and Wiltjer. Wiltjer plays in the same league as me for HS b-ball and he is a straight beast. Just saying that you are overrating this guy a little if you think he will be a top-20 player.
Webster Chan is ranked higher then Bennett right now which is obviously wrong. Im just tellling you how it is. Pangos is unranked at the same time he is compared to Nash, Birch is ranked #3 for 2012's class yet alot of people believe Bennett can be just as good. Why dont you see the talent there. He has legit peremeter jumpers, he has explosive leaping abillity, he jams harder, higher, and stronger then most NBA players and he is 17, he is 6'6 220 and he is 17, able to play SF and PF and he is extremely raw with all this talent. Top 20 is understating it.
I said I SEE TALENT...Top-20 understating it? Lol your funny. PAngos compared to Nash? Ugh...enough said lol.
You just said he's raw...he's 6,6, athletic and raw...there you go. A lot of players are like that. That's why he's not top-20.
Also, all I see is dunks and outlet passes...SOOOO IMPRESSIVE.
Yeah sorry Oh Canada but he is a good player but not top 20
I think the best he can go after his two remaining years at Findlay Prep is Top 50-60 IMO.Right now, he's just an athlete,but he will be a good player if he can develop as a 3. I have to admit Pangos is underated in the States,but he's overrated in Canada. Next Steve Nash? Let's just say pause. However I like him alot he's a pure point.
greg oden is straight gulping the haterade. seriously thou its a fact canadian prospects especially the ones that play hs ball here dont get near the attention that they should get. i mean come on now for some reason their are more ppl who have heard of afircas top player when we are much closer to the united states and have a much better product.
OH canada Keep Reppin hard for us canadians!
You make it sound like there are no scouts or anything in Canada...come on son. I ain't gulping no haterade. Get over it.
k let me break it down for you ...... im going to list a few canadian basketball players you may have seeen play in the nba or in the fibas that played canadian hs ball and then im going to tell you what colliege they either went or did go to.
Steve nash- Santa Clara im mean please the nba best playmaker in a long time SANTA CLARA
Jay Triano- The coach of the toronto raptors is widley regarded as one of our countrys best ballers to ever live guess what colliege he went to play at bet you cant?......drum roll plz..........Hold your applause..........Simon Fraser university
Joel Anthony- the miami heat backup center went to unlv and wasnt drafted
Jermaine Anderson- Canadian national team starting guard played at fordham wasnt drafted
now these are only a few players that i could think of that played hs ball in canada and didnt get their deserved hype outside of canada. Guys like tristan,myck,cory joseph,andrew wiggins dont count becasue they had to go down south to get reconized. Now greg oden plz explain if their are soo many scout up north how come these players who range from great to very sevicable on any colliege team didnt get any where but mid major interest plz give me a reason, and in jays case no U.S. interest at all?
That is a bad argument.
Over the history of the NBA, there have been plenty of great players that played collegiate ball at a small school. It happens.
Canadian high school ballers Ramon Harris and Jamaal Magloire both played at UK. Last I checked, UK wasn't a mid-major.
I am just stating the obvious scouts need to give credit where it is due. Especially after we produced arguably one of the nbas greatest players.
Of course there are always going to be the odd person that got recognized magloire,mucchlough that went to good programs but the ones that got missed far out way the odd one the US found.
Oh hey i also decided to do my research b itch ramon harris is from akorage alska and played hs ball their so get it right alaska isnt part of canada.
Obviously Pangos isnt going to be the next Nash, the comparison is simply because he is a great playmaker, penetrator, leader and shooter. And hes white, lets be real if he was black noone would ever compare him to nash. Pangos reminds me of a playmaking Jameer Nelson, as for Bennett he isnt just dunking. He runs the floor faster then some gaurds, he dribbles well and his frame is massive. If he grows to be at least 6'8 he can play PF even thou Canada wants him as SF he can still be a combo. His wingspan has to be at lest 7-Feet and honestly is super explosive. He has range beyond 3 and he has to work on skills. Yes everybody needs to work on skills but the difference is not everyone is a gifted freak of nature like this guy. 17 and he`s jumping out of the gym like that! He gets even a bit of a mid-range game going and a post up game going and he is Top 20 no questions asked.
Again, do you understand that most top prospects are very athletic? What makes him any different? I can't see into the future, but Im pretty sure he won't grow much more judging from his build. He looks like he peaked physically (which isn't a bad thing I guess). Anyhow, you say IF he adds all those things. What makes you think he will? A lot of athletic players rely solely on athleticism and power. Even if he does add those things, he won't be top-20. You make it sound like the other top prospects won't improve. Most of them will lol. Again, I say you're bias because you keep saying top-20 no questions asked when he is the 20th ranked pf at his position. Let me repeat, this is one of the deepest classes in terms of big men in quite some time. Also, this guy should be a senior...He's already 17.
Let me ask you this, if this guy was from the U.S., would you be making this video?
Anthony Bennett ranked #7...
Lol I would have done the same thing, bravo sir
