Rod Benson, via Twitter:
Campin w Indiana. This will be my final tweet for a while. You can hit me on facebook, but no blogs or tweets. Old stuff wont be up either.
Since he took down everything on Too Much Rod Benson, I'm assuming this was a mandate from the Pacers and not something Benson decided to do on his own.
Now, I'm not sure why he'd go to camp with the Pacers anyway since they have Jeff Foster, Tyler Hansbrough, Roy Hibbert, Solomon Jones, Josh McRoberts and Troy Murphy already signed to guaranteed deals, but if they also said he can't blog and tweet, it makes it all the more confusing.
We all know Benson's D-League accolades, or we should by now - basically, he's proven all he can in the D-League. I mean, per 36 minutes, he's averaged 14.9 points, 11.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game. You'd think that'd at least be worth an NBA look.
So really, I think this will decide it: Either Benson's blogging is the reason he hasn't earned that NBA job yet and he'll catch on with the Pacers or another team after the preseason, or his game just isn't suited for the NBA level.
I'm leaning toward the former. What do you think?
