Anthony Bennett Career High 15 Points Full Highlights (1/28/2014)

Hooray! After a mere 33 games, Anthony Bennett has scored in double figures! Hold on. Wait a minute. You’re telling me that this guy was the first overall pick? I thought he was just a random undrafted scrub! Damn, this guy sucks. Or, if he doesn’t suck, he’s just residing in Ohio’s biggest slump, currently situated a few miles east of Toledo.

For reference, Michael Olowokandi, one of the biggest busts ever, scored over ten in each of his first 3 games. The truth of the matter is, is that I would be hard pressed to find a stat that casts Anthony Bennett in a good light compared to any lotto pick in recent memory. Except that he’s still alive and breathing and has knees. But those aren’t stats.

But let’s focus on the positive! Anthony Bennett looked like a basketball player for portions of tonight’s contest against the Pelicans. He started off slow (unluckily for me the only part of the game I watched was where he missed a bunch of shots and turned it over, like usual), but somehow ended up with 15 points and hit some threes. He also had two sick posterization attempts on Greg Stiemsma that would have instantly undone all his previous ineptitude had they gone down.

It’s gonna take a lot of games like this to gain the status of “okay player”, but I think he can do it. There’s no way he can keep being as bad as he has been. Right?
