23-year-old Anthony Bennett signed with the Brooklyn Nets over the offseason. The 6’8″ forward is now on his fourth team in just four years in the NBA, which is unheard of for a former number one overall pick. For his career, Bennett has averaged a measly 4.2 points and 3.1 rebounds per game. So while Bennett clearly stinks at basketball and might end up as one of the biggest busts of all-time, he is awesome at cutting promos. I gotta give credit where credit is due.
As someone who got a B in Psychology 101 in college, I can tell you there’s no way in hell that was just an innocent mistake. That was a textbook example of what we in the biz like to call a Freudian slip. The Nets sucked last year, going 21-61 to post the third worst record in the NBA. It’s going to be more of the same this season, as Sportsbook is giving the Nets +125,000 odds to win the championship. They are tied with the Phoenix Suns as the biggest long shots in the league.
So make no mistake, this was no blooper from Anthony Bennett. He was just trying to save people from the horrors of watching the Nets play basketball. Unless people want their faces to melt off like at the end of Raiders of the Lost Ark, they need to avoid the Nets at all costs.
