      愛と喪失delve He would never be an all star but imagine if He wins a championship with houston and like is a role player who goes off in the finals or something, Im sorry but I couldnt call a guy a bust if he is the reason a team won a championship

      Won't happen with the Lockets!! Not with that style of play. He doesn't rebound. He don't play defense, either.

      @DJuan Brown with the volume that harden shot the ball that 3pt% is elite. And the fg same shit my guy

    The best thing about all these comments is the ammount of people saying that they hope he redeems himself and turns things around. So rare to see such possitivity especially on youtube of all places.

    • KingReformed

      Just wait until he makes it onto the roster, it will be nothing but hate towards a "has been" and a "bust". People are pretending here because it's a positive video, just wait on ESPN's upload, it'll be terrifying.

    I always pick him up when im playing MY GM in 2k. I know its useless in real life but i really do hope his career takes off at this point. I know hes not star material but i hope he could be a good role player for the rest of his career.

      @Unknown Haha, the Cavs drafted a PG that played 5 college games. Not saying the kid won't be good, just a really ballsy play.

    • Tethloach1

      @Anthony Archibald Since Ben Simmons has been to Kitchener Canada if Grand River High School was the place he played than I almost went to that school, making the basketball team there would have been next to impossible. I lived by that high School when I was 8-11 and when I was 15. I played basketball against some kid who was 6'1 and next thing the kid was like 6'6 = 3 months later.

    I knew bennet when he was still in the high school circuit. Guy is super talented. I think he will have a very solid season in Houston with Harden and Westbrook taking attention off of him.

    • mp3

      @Asdf Asdf Of course it's possible but he's signed with nba teams the last few training camps and not been able to earn a spot and if he does he's cut early in the season, Iam not hating on him it's not his fault he was the 1st pick he should never of been and the Cavs hold half of that blame but from a players standpoint to date he hasn't fought for his own he hasn't looked like he enjoyed playing even at times last year in the G but then he has a promising game so who knows what version the Rockets will get come September and onwards

    nice!!!i hope he does it.this is the 1st time ive seen him play with confidence.he seemed kind of a beat dog at 1st.he didnt play his game at all.he was playing the part of "i dont want to piss anyone off".now he has that stigma of being "the bust".he has nothing to lose now and he can just go out there and play his game.i hope the rockets let him

  • HadesOG

    Would be real nice to see him come back and put up some good numbers

  • Lumpy from Happy Tree Friends
    Lumpy from Happy Tree Friends

    In my opinion, he could have a breakout season in about 2020-21 if his role can boost him.


    I like hearing about busts that make a turn around.although he should never had been #1 overall,he didn't choose that and I'm sure the pressure of that,along with LeBron leaving them butt hurt for miami was alot to live up to.hope he does make a comeback!

  • Luigi Salvacion
    Luigi Salvacion

    His style of play fits in the current NBA. He can shoot and move as a big man. If only hi didn't lose his confidence he'll definitely be a good starter or worst, a good role player for a championship contender team.

  • WH WH
    WH WH

    he would be perfect for D'antoni run and gun offense. Imagine Russell pushing with ball and everyone running alongside hv 3pt ability and althletic to finnish at the rim, the offense will be lethal.

  • KOTS

    Well if Anthony Bennett become a solid player.ESPN will have a new and a great story to tell.

  • TC

    Feel bad for this man. Unexpected #1 pick in what was a not-so-strong draft class at the time and had to live up to all this hype of being the #1 pick when he was projected to be a lottery pick. Also the amount of shit people give this man is unbelievable, such as a whole video of him talking about his journey from #1 pick to the G League

  • Brandon Lambert
    Brandon Lambert

    I hope he makes it. I think the Cavs destroyed his career; didn't allow him proper time to recover from his shoulder injury/surgery after the draft and then whoever his trainers/player development coaches were after that didn't instill any good work ethic into him. If that wasn't enough, then after just one year they shipped him to Minnesota where a lot of potential careers go to die (besides the KG era). Really hope he becomes a glue guy like Draymond or Iggy

  • Logan Andrews

  • MJS

    That 1st Overall Draft Pick thing really messed him up. He shouldn’t have been picked that high. He has great potential to be a contributing player. Not at all A Star player. But a good player. Hope with the Rockets could be his breakout year.

  • gorobot

    Always thought he got a bad rap, blame the cavs for drafting him #1 and putting that pressure on a kid that should have been a second round pick. Respect to him not giving up, he could have sat on his couch the rest of his life with his rookie contract $ and been in luxury, instead he works through the g-league to get another shot. If he turns this around and becomes a solid role player, they better start filming his 30 for 30 immediately.

    A real one stayed til the end and liked the vid a lot. I'm a fan of AB especially being Canadian. Always hoped the Raptors picked him up but def a great pick up for Houston.

  • themihalyincident

    The Cavs kinda ruined his career. We was never a No.1 Pick player. Hope he does fine for the Rockets as a solid backup player. I have faith.

  • TWB soon
    TWB soon

    Tbh, he was always going to be good in the NBA but since he was a #1 pick nobody wanted to be patient with his development like, he’s a rookie, it doesn’t make him a bust, he just needs to adjust and learn the game around vets in the league

    WHOOOAAAAA Bro. Whoa. Dominating the GLeague??? He wasn't even close to "dominating" in the GLeague. Slow that roll lol. He was solid in the GLeague though. He's really improved his outside shooting. It gives him a chance to be a really solid stretch big man in the NBA. I'm excited to see how he does.

    Why do people keep saying 2013 is a weak draft class? Just cause the top players didnt perform? That just means scouting sucked this year. Its not that hard to look at the draft board, instead of jsut following what others are saying; Giannis Antetokounmpo Rudy Gobert CJ McCollum Victor Oladipo Otto Porter Steven Adams Tim Hardaway And that's just a few starters from this draft, and plenty of other role players still in the NBA! I would say this isn't the strongest, but stronger than most. Giannis is in this class for crying out loud.
