“The Blueprint: How Anthony Bennett became the No. 1 pick of the 2013 NBA draft”—Jason Lloyd

““The issue with Anthony was, and we had no way of knowing it at the time, the kid had no desire to overcome adversity whatsoever. As soon as it was hard, he was out,” (David) Griffin said. “His whole life, he rolled out of bed bigger, better, and more talented than everybody else. As soon as it was hard, it was over. And I was the one on campus at UNLV. I’m the one who got sold the bill of goods and I bought it hook, line, and sinker. You fuck up sometimes. But I feel bad (Cleveland GM) Chris (Grant) took it for that, because Chris was the one guy who wasn’t sure.”
