    From the last two games, I am on board with that! (Bender as C averaging +15 ppg and 8rpg)

    Chriss did apologize for the behavior.

    This is good to hear.

    Here are the details surrounding the Chriss suspension.

    Chriss needed to put in more work because he only played 14 minutes in the Hornets game. He is apparently still not in top condition.

    We all knew he came in outta shape, but I’m shocked that 3 months into a pro season a 20 year old still isn’t in shape.

    Other than the dispute with the coach, which we already knew, this was the big takeaway for me as well.

    I'm going the optimistic route...He's clearly the next Shawn Kemp!

    This is so deep I am not going to touch it.

    I still have Kemp's basketball rookie card. I thought he would be the next superstar.

    I can't confuse Chriss with Kemp.

    Somehow it still saddens me how Kemp never reached his full potential and the problems he had at the end of his career.

    He was an elite talent.

    He still had a pretty epic career, including being the leading scorer for a team that won 64 games and went to the NBA finals.

    That he did. Still he could have been more.

    He does have some traits similar to Chriss but Chriss does not have equivalent talent.

    I was in awe of Kemp's talent.

    It’s freaking embarrassing. He looked like crap in summer league out of shape, then shows up to the season out of shake... then is STILL out of shape 40 games in?

    He’s either got rocks for brain or a hole in his heart. Either way, he’s an idiot until proven otherwise.

    Like that we’re finally seeing a little aggression from Bender though and solid progress from JJ.

    No question. I was mainly just making a fat joke at the expense of two athletes who are/were in much better physical condition than I could hope to achieve on my best day. :)

    I know that.... that you were making a joke. :p

    It's funny that Shawn Kemp made me sentimental. Who would have guessed.

    I know foul trouble effects Chriss' minutes but I looked up to see how many times he's played more than 30 minutes in a game and in his 129 games in the league, 115 as a starter, he's passed the 30 minute mark just 19 times in his career. However this season he's only played in 30 or more minutes 3 times in his 47 games, 40 of those as the starter. That's a bit troublesome. Hopefully he can get things under control and the suspension was a wake up call of sorts. I'd hate to see what would would happen to him if he were in Kemp's position and had an extended offseason because of a lockout.
