Is It Too Soon To Call Anthony Bennett A Bust? |

American cinema classic Space Jam (which just got its own 30 for 30) features a scene in which a collection of skilled NBA players and Shawn Bradley have their talent stolen by stumpy extraterrestrials employing a plot device slash basketball. Said scene raises important questions about what exactly happened to Cleveland Cavaliers rookie non-sensation Anthony Bennett in this draft night photo. Positing that the no. 1 pick in the NBA draft had his talent absorbed by a magical alien basketball may seem a heuristic leap, but not much else stands up to Occam's razor here. This much is certain though -- Bennett is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad rookie season.
