Jonathan Bender Set to Attempt Comeback
Jonathan Bender, out of basketball since the ’05-06 season, is attempting to make an NBA roster this coming season. In the 28-year-old Bender’s own words: “I didn’t want the windows to close on me. I wanted the opportunity to fight off the demons inside my head … I read these articles that say, ‘He’s the top bust’ or ‘He’s one of the guys who didn’t live up to their potential.’ I don’t want to be 38 or 40 looking back thinking, ‘I should’ve done this.’ ” If you want to follow Bender’s comeback attempt (and it may cost you $), visit this site that he updates daily.
