WARNING: This is not a well thought out and statistically factual article, this is just the lunchtime ramblings of a scared Anthony Bennett fan.
I just watched like four different Bennett UNLV highlight reels and my only thought is, who the hell is that guy and when is he declaring for the draft? Now, obviously Bennett a borderline man amongst boys in a lot of those highlights, and the opposing skill level can be marginal or downright atrocious at times in college athletics, but those reels show a guy playing with passion, determination, aggression, emotion and excitement. These are all qualities that help separate us from being labeled as androids. Nowadays, when I see Bennett-bot Model #1515 take the floor, I see a cold emotionless shell of a basketball player with shoddily programmed artificial basketball intelligence, malfunctioning out on the perimeter or catching the ball and only being able to calculate primitive dribbles with his right hand before running into three defenders and triggering a system overload causing it to shoot the ball into the outstretched arms of opposing 4's and 5's. Now, obviously he's tasked with a different role and set of development circumstances in Mike Brown's "offense." But it's like the player who was drafted forgot all those intangibles and skill sets that made him an impact player in the first place.Where the fuck is the real Big Daddy Canada? Secretly running a maple syrup conglomerate? I mean, come on!

Anyway, this lunch break and depressed rambling is over...so if you see the real Anthony Bennett and not one of these fucking iRobots taking the court, please contact your local authorities as he's dearly missed.
