maxiell is undersized, but has stupidly long arms, so his short height isnt that big of a disadvantage. bennet surely isnt nearly as long as maxiell.

Bennett according to DraftExpress has a 7-1 wingspan (measured at Nike Hoop Summit). Maxiell's is 7'3 thats not much of a difference.

Yeah, I saw that he averaged 22 and 11 one season was like . He has to be the best player I've never heard of.

one of the best players who was held back by injuries, he was a beast at UNLV, he was the number 1 overall pick in 91

Not sure on Shabazz's ceiling, but I think he's going to contribute right away in the NBA.

You've never heard of Larry Johnson? You should check out some clips from that old Hornets squad... they were an exciting bunch.

LJ has a few notable things about him. For one he's the best player on one of the truely great college teams of all time. That two year run from UNLV just isn't something you see anymore.

He was also the guy I remember sort of starting the JUCO trend. I don't remember a JUCO transfer coming in and really making an impact prior to him, and he's probably still the best JUCO transfer ever.

The other thing is that his popularity really skyrocketed with the Grandmama ads at the time. So he was sort of dispropationately popular for a short stretch for a guy who had a long productive, yet not star level career. Those of us who lived through those UNLV / Hornets years will probably always remember LJ as being the beast he was, where he's gonna be hard to look back at and get that same vibe.

well his back injury severely limited his style of play in the latter half of his career. Had a stayed healthy he could have been a Karl Malone clone. I know personally I always associate him as the explosive LJ rather than the jumpshooter
