Prospect Vids from McClemore and Bennett.
Both fantastic collections from one game each.
Nobody with Zach Randolphs size should be able to move that fast WITH athleticism...
Are you talking about Bennett? He's 6'7 240 Z-Bo is 6'9 260 so what are you talking about?
How big was Zach as a freshman? Can't speak as if they're in the same stage of development.
Man, you can nitpick all you want. From the clip posted I felt like I was watching Z-Bo with springs. Regardless of his 'exact' size he punished Cal in those clips with his non-stop hustle getting offensive rebounds like it was nothing. He showed good footwork and post moves to either out-muscle the defense or use a nice little floater to get it over top. He faced his defender up twice, once showing a nice mid-range shot the second burning his man from the three point line for a monster dunk. I hadn't seen Bennett in live action, but this kid is a beast.
do you guys think he can guard sf in the NBA? I see him more as an undersized PF...
I think he could be compared to Leon Powe maybe... Pre injury when he was an offensive spark for the Celtics off the bench their championship year...
I highly doubt he can guard NBA SFs consistently. Actually, outside of a some shot blocks, I wouldn't expect much from Bennett defensively. He's not a good defender. Maybe he can become a better one down the line, but right now he's MUCH more of an offensive player than defensive. He still has the strength to bang and the length to contest shots at the PF position though.
I think this guy Bennett is a Stud... some players just have it, and some dont. He has it... A definite lottery pick if you ask me. Much much much better than McAdoo from UNC. And still may grow and get bigger physically. I dont see much room for him to not become a very productive NBA player. At 3:50, just awesome. Guys at his position and size dont do that.
Anthony Bennett = Larry Johnson 2.0
One thing for sure is, Anthony Bennett will be one of the biggest flip flopper while he's in college.
I'm not a big fan though he is doing better than i expected (and prolly everyone). I dont like him as a one and done prospect because his game is not NBA friendly, he does remind a little of Paul Millsap which is kinda of a good thing considering Millsap's success
Bennett has the "it" factor, the only knock on him is that he a 6'7'' PF, he's so talented and if he works hard could extend his range to 20 feet consistently, and who knows maybe even an NBA 3. If I had a pick from 7-12, I wouldn't let him pass.
