As soon as NBA commissioner David Stern announced UNLV forward Anthony Bennett as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2013 draft, you knew the league was in for a wild night.

Schein on Sports host Adam Schein said the draft, which was filled with blockbuster trades, teams moving up and down, and a handful of surprises, was “the greatest spectacle.”

“That was the single zaniest and greatest draft I’ve seen in the history of sports,” Schein said. “In terms of drama, in terms of intrigue, in terms of David Stern, Bill Simmons vs. Doc Rivers, in terms of unpredictability,” it was great.

SiriusXM Sports caught up with many of the players taken near the top of the draft, including Bennett (who went to the Cleveland Cavaliers), No. 2 overall pick Victor Oladipo (Orlando Magic) and the third pick, Otto Porter (Washington Wizards), to hear their thoughts on officially making it to the league.

Hear Adam Schein weekdays at 10 am ET on SiriusXM Mad Dog Radio, channel 86.
