JBender was in the newest issue of SLAM on the "SLAM Top Ten"

They ranked the past 10 hyped up first rounders who can (and should) break out soon.

Bender was on the list with players Darius Miles, Kwame Brown, Keyon Dooling and Qyntel Woods just to name a few.

I think Darius has shown all he can do.

MSA, you're two posts shy of 3k. Nice work, man.

Bender will and should break out next season if he can some how not get hurt.

Johnny's got a decent jump shot, but he's real clumsy driving to the basket, ala Rik Smits.. until he decides to bulk up and work his post up game, I don't see him having a "break out" year. :sarcasm:

JB can breakout but only if he drinks milk lol :laugh:

And I've had about just as many different avatars. :blush: Thanks, Anthem. Now, it's on to 4,000! :mango:
And I already think Jonathan has "broken out." He played extremely well last year when given the time, IMO. This coming season will just be the first extended amount of time that JB will use to disprove any doubters.

I truly hope that Bender does break out this year. I think that Bender will get all the opportunities that Al had. If he takes advantage of it he can be a star. At times you see glimpses of the potential the pacer brass talk about, but then one strong wind and Bender is on his IR.
