Animated: ESPN’s Bill Simmons reacts to the Cavs selecting Anthony Bennett

Grantland.com Editor in Chief and ESPN NBA analyst Bill Simmons provided one of the better reaction shots of the 2013 NBA Draft, doing so just a few minutes into the broadcast when UNLV’s Anthony Bennett’s name was called as the Cavalier’s first-overall pick.

The ESPN panel all had a different player for the Cavs to select, but none of them had Bennett going No. 1.

    He’s a tool I’m embarrassed he’s a Celtics fan!

    Actually he does he was talking about it during the coverage.

    You need an animation for when they announced Boston sending Pierce and Garnett to the Nets.

    Goes to show how much those “pundits” know. I’m pretty sure that Chris Grant made the right choice given that Noel and Len already have injury issues. Thompson/Zeller/Bennett would be a nice big man rotation, even when the Cavs would go small.

  • saggy

    a shoulder in jury doesn’t classify as an “injury issue”?

  • Steve

    He’s not a pundit, he’s an idiot who says ridiculous things whose role is to appeal to other idiots who like to say ridiculous things.

  • Captain Kidd

    So a guy who doesn’t watch college basketball (which he admits just about all the time) is surprised who the Cavs took. Uh who cares.
