Video: Cavs Fans React Ecstatically to Drafting Darius Garland
- Updated: June 20, 2019
Immediately after the selection was announced, Cavs fans watching in Cleveland expressed their supreme excitement over the selection.
The Land is excited to welcome you home, @dariusgarland22!
Garland missed the majority of the 2018-19 college basketball season after tearing his meniscus in late November.
Despite the small sample size, Garland is widely considered to be one of the most talented guards in the draft, with comparisons being made to former Cavs star Kyrie Irving.
The Cavs night isn’t done just yet. They’ll get to sit back and enjoy the moment while they wait for their next selection at No. 26 overall.
