Like I said... revisionist history. It's very easy to look back and criticize GMs now. All you have to do is go back and look at the threads.

There were three or four staunch Drummond supporters. Again, I know because I was one of them. The rest of the board? Not so much.

Who should the Cavs take at 4?

It still hurts that we picked Ross over this kid. How good would a Drummond/Val front line look right now?

AB will fine. He looked pretty good in the pre-season. He's just pressing right now. He needs to let the game come to him. Stop shooting 3's, and work inside.

I think about it every single time I'm reminded of the existence of either Ross, Drummond or the Detroit Pistons. After all the mounds of crap, that draft pick was the cherry on top of Colangelo's "Fuck you, Toronto" sundae.

I think part of the problem is the Cavs are competing to win games now, so there's added pressure when AB does step on the floor, fans are looking for production. It isn't like that most of the time for No. 1 picks.

First of all, they almost always get more than 10-15 minutes a night to get their feet wet and get in a rhythm. Secondly, there isn't usually much expected from the teams who pick first, so the pressure isn't as intense. That's the way it was for Kyrie/Tristan and even Waiters to an extent. This Cavs team is different and people are expecting them to compete for the postseason in the East.

The fact that Bennett being on the floor is taking time away from guys like Thompson, Varejao, Bynum, etc. is tough for the kid, I'm sure.

In the end, I think this humbling start to his career may end up helping him. The Cavs have still gotten off to a pretty good start, so it's not like his poor play is killing the team. He's too talented to continue playing so poorly offensively. A couple made shots and he'll be fine.
