jonathon bender is back??!!??

wow, kid just got signed to a 1yr non-guaranteed contract w/ the knicks. i thought his knees were too bad for him to play any more. i guess not. i really hope to see him play again. bender wasn't the best all-around player but he had length and could hit outside shots.

I'm really interested in seeing him play NBA competition a couple times in a week. Playing some pickup down in Louisiana isn't exactly the same. Kinda seems like a favor from Donnie Walsh.

Either way, good luck to him. Really good dude.

yeah, i'd like to see him play. i'd also like to find out the real reason how he went from retiring due to having bad knees to getting back in the league.

Because he got the itch, and everyone still feels like they got it in em...

A couple nights ago in a win over the LA Clippers Bender had 9 points, 2 boards, 1 dime, and a block in 14 minutes. Not bad at all considering its been about 3-4 years since he last played in an NBA game. It is good to see him back and hopefully his knees hold up okay. :applause:

cool. i was so glad to see his contract gone but not the actual player. he was injury prone but useful in certain situations.
