Sportsnet produces behind the scenes special about Cleveland's Anthony Bennett

USA TODAY Sports

This month Sportsnet aired it's special on the first Canadian to be drafted #1st overall in the NBA draft. The Cleveland Cavaliers' Anthony Bennett.

While Anthony Bennett's start to his career has been shaky to say the least, there's no denying that his selection has had a large impact on his home country. Bennett came from one of the more infamous neighborhood's in Canada. His story serves as inspiration to the children of that neighborhood and all over  the country; If they work hard and avoid the traps that are everywhere in rougher neighborhoods, they too can become successful.

Sportsnet's Donovan Bennett sat down with Anthony Bennett, along with Tristan Thompson, Mike Brown, Chris Grant and others to talk about Bennett, the impact his selection has on Canada, his role with the Cavaliers, and what they see in him. Unfortunately, they aren't allowed to show the parts with Tristan Thompson, Chris Grant and Mike Brown talking about him online due to the NCAA footage it features during those segments.

Some of the highlights from the missing parts were Mike Brown talking about how Bennett has all the tools to be a great defender, and if he doesn't use them, he's going to sit, as well as Thompson and Grant talking about Bennett playing the SF position down the road. While it's disappointing that part of the special isn't available online, it's still a really interesting special that gives a good look into the life of Anthony Bennett.
