This, friends, is journalism at its finest. Anthony Bennett is a power forward. He plays in the NBA. These are things that you already know. Below we give you a few facts about Bennett that you might not know. This research took several hours. 

Fun Fact 1: His mother grew up in Jamaica and she ran track and field and played netball. What is netball you ask? Netball is played with two teams of seven. The goal is to put a ball in a net. Sounds like an odd sport. I doubt that would ever catch on...

Fun Fact 2: Bennett was the first-ever Canadian-born player picked with the first pick in the NBA Draft. We have a feeling the Minnesota winter won’t be too much of a problem for Bennett.

Fun Fact 3: The UNLV product is pretty active on social media.  You should give him some follows.
