Many thought the development of Robin Benzing had been stuck as he seemed to fall short of his predicted NBA potential. However, the arrival of Svetislav Pesic to Bayern Munich has done miracles for the forward, who got his confidence back and turned into one of the cornerstones of Bayern's successful run to the BEKO BBL semi-finals. While he was often criticised for a lack of muscles he is now strong and compact enough to help out in the power forward spot, giving his coach more options when a floor-spreader is needed. While his biggest strength is still his soft touch, he can score in many ways, regularly posting up smaller opponents. Still only 24, he undoubtedly is one of the main forces for years to come at club level and for the national team. During the recent club season, Benzing has shown more maturity on and off the court, embracing the role of a team leader.
