Default Anthony Bennett is Jared Sullinger 2.0

They just look the same to me. Is the first pick justified?

Sullinger is a better rebounder. And that's about where it ends

I totally disagree. Bennett is more athletic, is more powerful around the basket. He plays above the rim and Sullinger plays below the rim. Bennett can hit the outside shot and has a bigger wingspan.

And even that's debatable. In his sophomore year Sullinger played over 3 more minutes per game than Bennett and grabbed 1.2 more rebounds per game.

I know it's not all about stats, but just sayin'.

Bennett was an older freshman than Sullinger. Basically Sully was a full year younger his first year

People outside of Boston don't realize how good Jared will be. Within a couple months he was getting double doubles. Literally improving game by game. He was bostons best rebounder. Boston fans were rooting for sullinger to take bass' starting position. Then he went under the knife. Looks like he is recovering really well an it's a permanent fix surgery too. Sullinger was a steal for Boston last year. Garnett said he was a really high iq player. Casual fans don't know this but KG doesn't call you by your name he calls you "rookie". For kg to give him praise means something. Sullinger is strong, good FT shooter, rebounder, can score back to the basket and straight up, high IQ and is going to be a double double machine. Worst case scenario in my opinion is a more offensive capable jj hickson.

If Sullinger didn't have that injury on his back which is gonna limit his career, he would have been a really good player and a top 10 pick in the 2012 draft.

Jared Sullinger is a good player, and Anthony Bennett is nothing like him.

A lot of Bennett's appeal starts with his body - specifically his unique blend of raw power and quickness combined with a long wingspan. In contrast, Sullinger's body for his style of play is his main weakness.
