I really want to see him succeed and its tough for a rookie to go from hyped 1st overall pick to cast away.

Tough situation, but it's now that he needs to show what he's made of.

He was #1 pick. Then he was hyped.

He certainly wasn't a top 3 pick on anyone's board but the Cavs apparently.

He'll go to the Spurs and turn in to a role player.

I don't think he's as bad as people think if he finds the right fit and settles in to a defined role, but he was definitely never a top 3 talent and being taken that high can be a bad thing if a player isn't ready for that kind of spotlight and expectations.

I remember Melo trying to help him out with some advice during his rookie year. That is off course, if the Knicks want to throw another season and let Bennett got all the minutes he wants.

I was surprised when they accepted the team offer for 3rd year of 5M+.

When you cannot play for the worst team in the league when they get crushed by injury you probably aren't a great prospect.

I still think he figures it out in the next couple years, Raps/Lakers would be a great fit for him.

He's young and has potential. Just give him another 5-6 years.

Warriors or Spurs should take a chance on him.
