Cleveland fans settle and cheer a bad draft

This was a horrible Draft by the Cavs. Dion Waiters? A guy that didn't start one game is the number 4 pick?

The initial reaction was Cavs fans being shocked and upset. Overtime, acceptance of a terrible draft kicked in and people started to convince themselves that this was a great draft.

It seems this was a reaction to not getting the deal done with the Bobcats to get Beal. It was like they said well we could get Beal so we're just going to take a guy we didn't workout and who was the a 6th man at Syracuse. In this deep draft the Cavs couldn't muster up 4 solid picks? USA Today gave the Cavs the bottom grade in the draft and sadly I agree.

Draft grades: Warriors, Thunder get A's; Cavaliers in cellar

Cleveland Cavaliers: D+

The Cavaliers landed two good players in Syracuse guard Dion Waiters and North Carolina center Tyler Zeller, but they overpaid horrendously. Waiters was the first stunner of the draft when Cleveland took him fourth, ahead of several players who would have been better fits and better talents. Zeller, picked 17th, should be a perfect fit but came at the cost of the 24th, 33rd and 34th picks in a trade with the Dallas Mavericks. The Cavaliers had too many holes to fill to give up so many picks for an injury prone center.

The Cavs could have gotten 4 solid picks to plug into Byron Scott's offense.
