Dion Waiters

Let me start this off by saying, I totally dislike the mock draft. I think it's so random and doesn't even take care of team needs, but I really think the Cavs shouldn't draft Ben McLemore, either try to trade and get Aldridge or draft Nerlens Noel.

I wasn't a Dion Waiters fan last year, and I didn't like the Dwyane Wade comparisons, but over the 2nd half of the season he really impressed me with his game. I like his mid-range game, his off the dribble game, his strength and athleticism attacking the basket, and his ability to create for other, I really think The games of him and Kyrie vs. John Wall and Bradley Beal will be entertaining for the next 5-10 years. I think he could be a D-Wade lite type player and that's why I don't think the Cavs should touch McLemore. I see tons of people say Dion should come off of the bench and I don't agree. Not only does he have the great offensive game that i mentioned earlier, he has already been talking to Mike Brown about working on defense. He's already working out this summer, he's in much better shape, the best shape i've ever seen him in since he burst on the scene at Syracuse. He's also trying to focus on his balance, for his whole offensive game but especially his jumpers and he has also been working on endurance.

Which brings me back to McLemore, we keep talking about the potential things he could do, but as of right now, he can't really create for others, he can't really create for himself, he's a great catch and shoot guy, a great athlete and a good but not great defender. We don't know if Mclemore will ever develop those other strengths that Dion already has. Dion is also only 14 months older, so the age really isn't a factor.

I wasn't a believer last year, but I like Waiters. I think he'll be a star in this league, same thing with Bradley Beal. The Cavs shouldn't touch McLemore. Waiters and Kyrie are the future.

Here's a video of Dion working out this summer.
