    How about the first pick in the NBA draft?

    Anthony Bennett.

    Tonight he made his first shot.

    That was his first successful shot of the season.

    He is 1 for 20, shooting 5%.

    I was not coorelating the two, I was simply pointing out that he has had parental problems growing up.

    He grew up in the ghetto of Toronto, right down the street from me. I know where he lived by Jane and Finch. That area has killings every week and gangs. You can take a black man out of the hood but you can't take the hood out of the black man. You know how many guys want his throat for ditching? He has breathing problems and conditioning concerns, and too much pressure to live up to the first pick, especially being the first canadian drafted 1st overall.

    He will be unheard of by 2015

    Are you suggesting that Rosa Parks' decision not to walk to the back of the bus was due to her being lazy and not due to her desire to take a stand against racial segregation. Deemer may be on to something

    You comparing Jane/Finch to an American ghetto is fukking laughable. Get a clue, pal.

    God bless.

    I had honestly never heard of this guy until draft night. If anyone had asked me before today who Bennett even was I couldn't tell you.

    While Anthony Bennett put up another goose egg tonight, I'm not going to write him off quite yet.

    Just look at last year's number one pick: Anthony Davis. This guy is suddenly one of the best players in the league. Flat-out stud.

    About 5 people on here knew who the fukk Bennett was before he got drafted.

    Didn't he play at UNLV?

    Unless you were Ayo, YOUNGBUCK, sonnybaby, LKid, or Chalkydog who all seem to eat, drink, breathe, and sleep college b-ball, you may have just casually heard of the guy.

    Even some of the draft experts accidentally thought the Cavaliers drafted this guy:

    I saw them play against I guess it was New Mexico last year and I was impressed. He's not very tall though and he has weight issues. That's good when you are playing against lesser athletes but not in the NBA.
