Dragan Bender played SL? I thought he would have been close to retirement by now.
I think we have to also look at the Suns player development, or lack thereof, especially last season. In addition to Bender and Jackson, Chriss looked no better, and TJ Warren stagnated as well. There’s a lot wrong with that organization.
QuoteImagine if Ainge picked bender over brown...Ainge would not have made that mistake. Because all the signs were out there on Bender if you watched his tape and were honest. But guys fall for the hype train every year. Ainge is not usually one of them. But you could see Bender was not athletic and had little in common with the Porzingas other than height. His vertical when he was drafted was horrible. His max vertical was like 27.5" inches. That is not his standing vertical but his max with a run and for a professional athlete is it very bad.http://www.draftexpress.com/profile/Dragan-Bender-62877/That told me that he did not have a very good athletic base to grow into and would struggle against NBA athletes because he lacked fast twitch muscles. He was is also skinny and weak so he could not offset this stuff with strength like some guys can. Some guys saw this and projected greatness, and they were wrong.Everyone knows Jackson can't shoot and still can't he is a taller Marcus Smart.
