One of the reasons Dion Waiters is one of the best young scorers in the league, is his belief in himself. He believes in his ability to produce on the court, and he thinks the Cleveland Cavaliers should too.
In a recent response to some Twitter questions, Waiters was asked if he would accept a sixth man role for the upcoming season. Waiters reply, ‘Nooooooooo.’ In the 2013/14 season, Waiters averaged a solid 15.9ppg, 3.0asp and 2.8 rpg, all in 29 minutes per game.
On Monday, after Day 1 of Team USA Training Camp, CSNNW.com asked Waiters again and he backed himself once again. ‘I want to start and I believe I should at the two.’
That’s the right response, seeing as the Cavs manage to keep signing and drafting people who play the same position. At Cavs training camp, the fight for court time at the two spot is going to be an epic battle.
Andrew Wiggins is obviously blessed with incredible talent, fellow 2014 draftee Joe Harris out of Virginia is a very good shooter with plenty of physical ability too. The Cavs also signed Mike Miller, and word is Ray Allen is ‘leaning towards signing in Cleveland as well. The battle for starting SG in Cleveland will definitely be a battle of the titans.
