Austin Daye did horrible. He couldn't bench 185lbs once? He also looks like the least athletic player in the combine.

He is 6'11" however only a mere 190 pounds. Tomorrow I'm going to see how many times I can bench 185 pounds. My max bench is 175.

durant couldnt bench 185 either... people with that body type always get killed on bench... barely any muscle on his frame... combine that with his wingspan and you get someone who is terrible on the bench. the person who suprised me most was stephen curry... he looks like a stick but he got seven or eight reps.

Harden's 3/4 court sprint is impressive and shocking at the same time - I found him slow and lethargic watching him during the tournament.

Are you 6'11" and trying to turn pro? If you are then you should be as ashamed as I'm sure Daye is. Even some of the smaller guards could bench it.

He's not nearly as talented as Durant...And Durant should be ashamed he couldn't do it too. These are highly trained athletes. Being in peak physical form can give a player an edge...Or allow him to keep up.


Daye didn't just score badly in the bench either. He did poorly in everything.

Thats because some guys are quick.

Some guys are fast.

The difference is usually power and size.

Harden might be a good player!!!!!

its one thing to sprint as fast as you can down the court one time - when you're fully healthy and ready to go.

its another thing to run that exact same speed down the court when you've been doing it 10 times in a row and you are winded and gassed.

this doesnt mean jack IMO. he could be the fastest guy in the draft, but i'll take the slower guy if he can go at that exact same speed after an hour, when that fast guy is passed out of the court.

I can do 185 for 7 reps and I weigh 165. Daye is a joke...

You do know it's harder to bench press with longer limbs, right?
