    Bender looks down before shooting the wide open 3 and is wide right.

    Need a football smilie of a referee saying the FG was no good. :)

    Remember, according to a couple geniuses on this board and the morons on realm Josh Jackson is already bust.

    Idiot hot takes like that is why athletes justifiably hate some fans. I'm sure he ll have some more terrible games this year, and those same people will declare him a bust again.

    His potential is ridiculous, the second he stepped on a court he was already one of the most explosive players in the league.

    Oh god just stop. As far as some guys calling him a bust or not being as good as other players drafted around him that perfectly justifiable, but calling him one if the most exlplosive players in the league is a ridiculous exaggeration

    Hey, as one of the resident Bender haters, I have to admit I liked his little flash to the free-throw line there (late in the third quarter).

    Do they keep airballs as a stat? Tyler Ulis has to be among the league leaders.

    There is always a stat for something.

    Calling him a bust after 3 months is justifiable, but not one of the most explosive? Are you trying to prove you are one the people i was talking about?

    Was wiggins one of the most explosive coming into the league, well the Kansas coaches said Jackson was equal to wiggins, and you only need eyes to see it.

    Once he figures out when to take a midrange shot instead of trying to pass it, his play will drastically improve. Smart kid but often too unselfish

    At this point, might as well make Bender our pg since all he wants to do is pass.

    Are there really that many people here who have called him a bust to dedicate a post to it? To make it seem like there’s a bunch of people claiming he’s a bust seems as hyperbolic as those calling him a bust.

    If you visit suns board on realgm, every game half the people were. And yes, there are several people i have argued with on this board over the same thing.

    Including someone in this thread! saying it is jusfifiable calling him a bust.

    I said I wanted Jackson at 4 and it was the right pick to make but hindsight I'd rather have Lauri and I stand by it.

    If by "explosive" you mean widly undisciplined then yes he's very explosive a lot of the time. I'm rooting for him to suceed.
