that many of the same fans that bash JB for taking years to mature physically are the same fans that say we need to give RA more years to mature emotionally.
Bender is 23
Aretest is 26?
:laugh:


Bender is 23
Artest is 24

Artest is ONLY a year older and is an allstar and DPOY, and Bender well....

Um, Artest is only 14 months older than Bender, chief.

And Artest has already accomplished a HELL of a lot more than Bender has, or likely ever will. That tends to gain more support.......

Even a Detriot fan knew he was only a year older. Next time, look it up before posting. Just a tip. ;)

On top of that, they entered the NBA in the SAME SEASON.....

And in 5 seasons, Ron has become a Defensive Player of the year, all-NBA 3rd team member, an all-star, and Bender has done what, exactly?

*BTW, Ron is doing this while lacking Bender's height, shooting ability, and on top of that, Artest couldn't jump higher than Bender if he had a trampoline. I'm not a huge fan of Ronnie's lack of composure, but he has done infinately more with a lot less....

What KStat said was dead-on, but there's an even bigger problem with your post.

Please name one person that "bashes JB for taking years to mature physically ... [while saying] we need to give RA more years to mature emotionally."

ONE PERSON, please.

I think he's physically mature enough to play the SF position. His fundamental play and decision making on the court is what is lacking.

ok, lets rephrase it.

Isn't it strange how many of the same people that bash JB for taking years to mature physically are the SAME people that say we need more time for RA to mature emotionally, even though he's a year older. :laugh::laugh::laugh:
(see it still works)

No, it doesn't. Nobody's faulting Bender's late growth... it's kinda cool. What they fault are his mental and emotional aspects of the game.

I'll try again. Nobody is saying "Bender sucks because he just now got to 7'1" Wasted pick!" They're sayign "Bender sucks because he has no basketball fundamentals and is scared of pressure!"

Do you actually read other people's posts, or just assume that you know what they're going to say?

Just let it go, anthem. Children live in their own world anyway. Let 'em believe what they want to believe.

Don't feed this guy.

I bash JB for just being hyped up. Not because he is immature physically.

While Ron Needs to mature emotiionally there is NO Doubt in anyone's mind Ron is and will continue to be a big name in this league. JB emotionally and physically has proved to me nothing , but a consistant bench warmer.

I been waiting for the hype of JB and I still see just a glimpse of something , I personally think the Pacers have invested too much into him , this year is his year and if he falls he should be ousted.

Now before you all go postal on me about Artest , he should earn his way too , and I don't think he will disappoint.

Just because he's hyped up? That can't possibly be your only reason, right?

Although that is a good point. The enternal bench warmer, often being ompared to KG.
