Anthony Bennett playing well, reading badly

NBA: Preseason-Brooklyn Nets at Miami Heat Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

Anthony Bennett has played well the last two games.

In 42 minutes, he’s scored 26 points, grabbed eight rebounds, shot 37.5 percent from three, slightly better overall and may be on the way to redeeming the faith the Nets placed in him this summer.

But alas, preseason has not been perfect. Bennett was part of a series of bloopers drawn from NBA players’ promotional videos and put together by the producers of Shaqtin a Fool. Witness...

Oh dear. Bennett quickly realizes his mistake, but it’s caught for all eternity on some recording medium. It led to all sorts of retweets by pundits (and Celtic fans salivating over a certain pick exchange). Can’t have that happen. Better luck next time, big fella.
