Brampton’s Anthony Bennett confirmed what everybody was expecting on Monday, declaring for the NBA draft.

After an outstanding freshman year at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas blemished only by injuries, the 6-foot-8, 230 pound power forward really had no choice other than to go after his dreams.

Holding back tears, Bennett announced that he would be the first Runnin’ Rebel since Shawn Marion in 1999 to leave early for the NBA and its first-ever one-and-done product.
