Honestly, is Bender's POTENTIAL (never mind production) really worth all this emotion? Even when he was playing his best, he looked like a really good player - not a bigger Tracy McGrady. Even in the legendary Christmas game against Orlando, he looked really good - but nothing like the next coming of anything.
Am I right? Or his potential more than I realize. Besides being physically fragile, he seems emotionally fragile. The classic guy who can ball when nothing is on the line, but disappears in a tough situation. Maybe that's just seasoning, but I don't think I see it.
That being said, how would his skills fit into Phil's triangle offense?
