When the Cleveland Cavaliers selected Anthony Bennett No. 1 overall, Twitter reacted, as it should. Even though the team met with Bennett and many experts close to the Cavaliers had him going No. 1 to the Wine and Gold. He’s a stretch player with tremendous offensive capabilities, an encompassing rebounder and has the most upside, in my opinion, of any player in this draft. This makes him a great compliment to Tristan Thompson, and I think they will work great on the court together.
Anyways, here are how the experts reacted to Bennett going No. 1:
Anthony Bennett: “I’m just as surprised as everybody else.”

Ladies and gentlemen, Chris Grant! He doesn’t care what anyone thinks. Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters and now Anthony Bennett.

There’s no way around this – Anthony Bennett was a terrible pick. Like him a lot, but he’ll eat his way out of the league before he’s a star
