That's not right

Look at the mins.

Also Bender has one more NBA season under his belt,
he has had Larry Bird and Isiah Thomas as head coaches
while Dermarr has had Lon

Bender has one more season under his belt,and he has
had alot better coaches than Dermarr Johnson has.Dermarr
is also alot better defensive player than Bender is.

Look at how Dermarr shutdown Kedrick Brown...30 minutes,
3 points on 1-8 shooting and Brown was looking like
MVP of the league until DJ shut him down.

They played the same ammount of mins and Bender
has ALOT better teachers than Dermarr has.

Dermarr didn't get consisant minutes the first half
either.He did start producing more in the second
half and pulled in a few 20 point games aswell.

Right now Bender is no better and I've seen Bender
alot and he has never impressed me and DJ doesn't
impress me that much to be honest.Right now I'd
call them both busts.

Even though we wasn't playing for the playoffs this
team played HARD the second half.They played in
a manner in which they had a chance.I wanted them
to go ahead and go for the lotto pick and take Caron
Butler to start at SF with DJ/JT/SAR/Theo.

The compare is far due to Bender having better coaching
and a years experience.I know DJ played a year of college,
but college is different from the NBA...It's alot different than
one more season of NBA experience.

I'm not even happy with Dermarr right now so I am being
str8 up with you.

Bender has more potential.I will say that.

IF Dermarr reaches his potential the best he
would be is Sean Elliot and Sean was a
good player and probably a 4 time allstar had
he not got injured,but Bender has more potential
than that.

I will admit I'd love to have a young Sean Elliot
with JT/Reef/Theo,but I don't know if DJ will
reach his potential.

I like to the have potential on the team as extra,
but as I am sure you can tell I am not a believer of
potential until it actually happens.

I never said anything about beliving the Darius
Miles hype either.

I think to many guys claim to many players with
decent hype are gunna turn into superstars.As
many potential "superstars"as we have in the
league it seems like every team should have
atleast 5 or 6 future superstars.

I just think it gets alittle old everyone claiming
half the leagues young guys are gunna develop
into superstars when it isn't gunna happen.

I'm not saying which all ones will become busts.But
i will quickly say Dermarr will not reach his potential
because he is a unagressive player.He has the talent
but severally lacks agggression.
