    Bender 0 points? He was the 4th pick in the draft it's turning into a bad joke at this point

    A lot of picks have washed up, but he can't even become a serviceable bench or solid role player. I still haven't seen "it" like others have out of Bender.

    There’s no measuring his basketball IQ.

    Literally.

    He might have great basketball IQ but that dog just isn't in him.

    Dude doesn’t look like he has much of anything in him.

    Not sure Bender actually likes playing the game.

    JC... didnt you just a couple hours ago call him a solid 3 and D guy and a possible hit for McD in the lotto? Can’t use a guy as evidence for keeping McD in one breath while posting this in another.

    Did not call him a solid 3 and D guy (maybe a month ago I could have said he might become one). I did say that he is still possible as a hit pick. Have not closed the book on him yet. I am more that willing to admit when I am wrong, and I am often.

    My comment here is just a gut response to his play in the last few games. He seems to have just fallen off the cliff when playing with starters.

    Send him to a sports shrink. Get his ambitions up.

    I think one is born with it or learns the competitive spirit early in life.
