how did Bender look, in his minutes ?

21mins, 0P (0/3), 7R, 2A, 1B

before RoLos good few weeks, i really wanted Bender to get his mins.


Wasn't asked to do too much by the Knicks offense. Looked mobile, ran the floor nicely and looked apart on offense. Set some nice screens and made quick decisions which led to his 2 assists. He's got legit vision and passing skills.

In fairness, most of those folks weren't at this site. But even those folks pretty quickly moved on last year.

I'm not sure where Sabonis would fit on this current Bucks team, but he'd be one heck of a trade asset to possess.

I'm willing to bet you could count on one hand the amount of 7 rebound games Thon has had.

I blame any Thon support on unrequited hope and a lack of understanding of Garnett's ability to discern talent.

In both cases I offer my apologies for my error.

He may have had a dozen 7 rebound weeks.

3.5 years in and Thon has shown about zero improvement, even his body looks exactly the same as before the NBA.
Even if he's 3 years older than advertised he should've shown something by now, just from all the support and facilities and professional training available to him, but nah. Amazing.

I guess the one complaint I have is the “go pack go” chant. Not just last night, but no matter when. It could be game 3 of the nfl regular season and if the bucks show a packers player the arena gets crazy loud and chants in unison. Meanwhile the same arena can rarely get a “defense” chant going in unison

For a narrow framed guy, bender sets solid screens and is really quick with his feet/has good hands. He “could” be an asset in a pnr with Giannis in the future.

Eh, I think he's more of an empty stats guy on a bottom feeder like Rain or Shine Elastopainters.

Believe it or not, he's had 11. Which was more than I expected. Has never cracked double digits though. I mean, he's only 7' tall. How much can you expect?

Edit: Dragan has had 29. In 75 fewer games played.
