    Before today's game he had 2 double-doubles in the last 3 games and today almost got another one with 7 points and 9 rebounds in 16 minutes.

    Watch out! Anthony Bennett will be the best rotation player ever drafted #1 overall!

    In 16 minutes, he takes 8 shots. Makes only 2 shots and 0-2 from 3 point line. He had -7. He has a future of a chucker. Atleast Kwame wasn't chucking jumpers as soon as he gets the ball. I expect more from No. 1 pick. His production is not even good for a top 10 pick. Biggest bust of NBA.

    Maybe he'll have a better career as an NFL player... given his size.

    In Bennett's defense, the whole 2013 draft will go down as one of the worst in NBA history. Even likely ROY Carter-Williams shoots under 40% and is at a league-average PER.

    I wonder what Morey and the other analytics guys were thinking when the Cavs wasted a number 1 on him?

    Kwame Brown was a solid defender and rebounder. Im more than half a foot shorter than Kwame, if he really is a full 6'11, but I remember measuring my hand against a traceable print of his hand at a convention and I can see why this guy had so much trouble catching and finishing consistently at point blank range.

    Morey and other analytics? No other mock drafts had Bennett going number 1, check out every site from draft express to the ESPN mock draft. This is actually what made me rank Chris Grant as the worst GM of all time, at least with guys like MJ or Mchale or whoever, you can sort of see why they drafted players like Kwame. With Grant though, he drafted clearly inferior players like last year's Waiters over Barnes. What the hell was the reason for that, Barnes was the better player in college, has more potential and clearly was a better fit with the Cavs team. There was no other explanation other than Grant was an idiot.

    That was really bad. He is definitely a chucker.

    Even though that was an amazing compilation of bricks, his form actually looks pretty good. If he keeps his asthma/weight under control he could be a Brandon Bass / Glen Davis type. Terrible pick at #1 overall though.

    The thing that stood out to me is that it looks like he can't jump.
