    Ive said this before and still believe Anthony Bennett will be the best player to come out of this draft.

    Yes. But now that I think of it, I know Dell would pick him for a reason; so maybe it wouldn't be too bad. (This is I trying to talk myself into what could happen.)

    Unless ad's moving to the 5 this season this would not be a good move imo. Not unless he shocks the world and can guard 3's on a regular basis.

    I think Bennett would play as one of our 2 big men. Isn't he like 261 now?

    Stole this from another thread, but one certain Western conference GM thinks he will be a superstar.

    yeah his weight reportedly shot up due to his injury and not being able to work out. I wouldn't mind picking bennett but only if your playing ad at the five. But idk if ad is ready for that challenge this early in his career.

    Why couldn't he workout again? His legs are fine.

    So a shoulder injury is a legitimate excuse for him to gain 18 pounds?

    You came up the excuse for him being hurt as the reason why he couldn't work out. That's implying it.

    I mean gaining 20 pounds whether hurt or not is a head scratcher. But maybe it was because of the traveling and not being able to workout as much as he should. He should still be able to run but no treadmill's lol

    Not even close. You asked why he didn't workout. I merely said that he's hurt so he couldn't workout with us.

    Would rather get him than Burke and Porter, so I wouldn't mind.

    We're not on the same page then. I was talking about cardio.

    Alright, when you said "workout," I thought you meant like Draft Workout.

    If the other 5 are gone, I could live with Bennett for sure. He may end up being the best player in this draft. I'm now on the CJ McCollum bandwagon, so I'd rather him. I think McCollum fits better with Austin Rivers than Trey Burke does. We are taking the best available player on our board no matter what position he plays. It's all about collecting assets in the NBA and you want to collect the most that you can!

    This is my mindset going into tomorrow. I'd like Burke, Oladipo, or Len, but I trust Dell to make the right decision because he's got about a .900 batting average at least so far as GM.

    I'm happy whoever we draft.
