@TrueHoop: Anthony Bennett: “I’m just as surprised as everybody else.”

Anthony Bennett (born March 14, 1993) is the first Canadian born player to be drafted #1. He was a college basketball player for the UNLV Runnin’ Rebels basketball team. The Cleveland Cavaliers made him the #1 pick in 2013 NBA Draft at Barclays Center.

NBADraft.Net: “Two words that bode well for Bennett’s future are productivity and efficiency. He has the innate ability to create spacing which helps him to score whether it’s freezing a defender with a jab step or flaring off of a screen to catch-and-shoot or flat out blowing by a defender for a power dunk.”

ESPN.com: “Top 5 pick, long, super athletic forward with an NBA body. Bennett is an explosive leaper that can score inside and out with jump shot range out to the 3-point line.”

DraftExpress.com: “Bennett stepped onto a deep and experienced UNLV team that won 26 games last year and immediately established himself as their go-to guy and most aggressive player, which he’s proven he’s worthy of as he ranks as one of the most productive players in the country.”
