A backcourt of Burks and McCollum would be a nightmare to defend though, you could run some variation of a dribble drive offense with McCollum, Burks, and Hayward in. All can drive, dish, shoot, and get to the free throw line a lot.
Forgot to mention UK playing on ESPNU (now).
McW not impressing me.
Anthony Bennett Drawing Karl Malone Comparisons
Jan 02, 2013 4:39 PM EST
Anthony Bennett has had an outstanding freshman season at UNLV, averaging 19.2 points, 8.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 28.3 minutes per game.
Bennett has increased his stock in the eyes of NBA scouts.
"I have heard Karl Malone a little bit, which is really intriguing," wrote Chad Ford.
Bennett is listed at 6'8, which would make him a slightly undersized power forward.

He should go around 14/15 on 'my' board.
We will have to disagree on where he ranks. I see him as a top 10 potentially top 5 depending on how well he performs in league play. Like you I have seen him play for 3 years both at Findlay and as a season ticket holder. I really like his swagger and his versatility, but do agree he needs to try to be more effective in the post as he tries to do too much on the perimeter at times. I think some of that is rices offense though because at Findlay he did a little more work down low.
Was Malone a legit 6'9? Bennet is 6'8 and change from the look of him. I think a taller Grandmama is a good comparison for him. Unfortunately he has had back trouble like LJ so hope that does not become part of his comparison.
I don't think Bennett will be in the Jazz's range. He intrigues me greatly, though.
Eenie-Meenie has badgered me and the mods about removing something he actually said because he's clearly completely sane.
