    In a Rocket system he would, as he isn't a high efficiency shooter.

    Again the term is subjective.

    I'd think Bennett will be getting a lot fewer minutes than Stro' got. Gah, he was hard to watch.

    9/4.5 over 12 min/game wouldn't be the worst thing ever. Course, if he was averaging that, he'd be getting more than 12 minutes a game...

    Where do we see him playing if he makes it? Giving Tucker a rest? Taking House's minutes?

    Jimmy Walker was on the Mount Rushmore of best college basketball players I saw in person - - his performance in the '65 (IIRC) Holiday Invitational was extraordinary.

    I hope he is just himself and fits with the chilled out Harden. He doesn’t need to try to change and be like another person because that will end in failure. He is who he is, where ever he goes there he is. Westbrook, Harden and Bennett just all to have the same goal of making wins. Harden bouncing Paul off the team for being to high strung shows hope that he and Bennett will get along. Hopefully with someone understanding Bennett he will then open up to his full potential. Mello and successful is the vibe because hard work isn’t heard, it’s witnessed.

    Bennet about to show everyone he’s the new Antoine walker.

    6’8 PF who can shoot score but can’t rebound or defend.

    But seriously I think he has a legit chance to get minutes this year.

    Him or Clark is going to have to get 10-12 min a night playing 4 and 5.

    Anthony Bennett is about to show the world he's on Antoine Walker's level, sorry had to fix it for ya.

    But seriously, a poor man's Antwan Jamison I would love in this offense. We shall see..

    Will he be the bustiest?

    I can't believe we did not give Bargnani a shot.

    That's just disrespectful to a guy fighting his way back into the league.

    You just dont understand how tough that is.

    He is just a guy playing the game, doesn't seem to have that PASSION needed to excel at it. He is a low motor player - let's hope that he has discovered his passion for it, otherwise, don't expect much.
