Bennett: "I didn't really have any idea who was going No. 1"

Wha was a wild 2013 NBA Draft started out with a huge bang, as the Cleveland Cavaliers shocked the world and took UNLV Forward Anthony Bennett first overall. Both Bennett, and his family who was accompanying him, were stuck in a complete state of shock as he became the second UNLV player in history to be drafted first overall (Larry Johnson in 1991). Hear what the newest Cavalier had to say about playing in the pros, and his reaction to being taken off the board so early.
