If Cleveland can keep him focused and away from fast food joints in Cleveland and while on the road, he may end up having a very solid rookie season.

Great players are hungry..not hungry for the buffet, but hungry to be the best. They work hard, this guy doesn't seem to have a great work ethic. Too much hype also. High bust potential!

You dudes are idiots. SMFH

This guy will have one of the best first steps in the league the moment he suits up for the first time. That in addition to his advanced ball handling and passing skills will make him a terror on the wing.

I mean, I know I'm me and you're you, but damn, some of ya'll sounding very elementary right now.

And for the record, I had to do my research on Dion. A couple of guys around here were on him before me. Props to them.

Looked like utter garbage in summerleague , not that it means that much .

I'll just wait and see , I dont like to hype you players who really haven't done that much.

I think Lillard will be ROY tho.

he suffered an ankle injury prior to summer league and that was supposedly the reason that his agent shut him down for all the workouts. He came into the summer league fine, but was out of shape. He did "too much in too little time" according to the cavs staff prior to the games and did not play at his full potential.


I don't think he has a high bust potential, rather i think his floor is an above average starting SG.

I liked the Thompson pick last season. Not sure I understand why they took Waiters over Barnes.

A bench player in college and he goes high lottery. Sounds like Marvin Williams all over again.

You also said Sullinger wasn't considered a top 5 prospect before the 2011 Draft.

yeah i still stand by that. It wasn't like there wasn't any question marks about his game, especially his effort, maturity, and his effectiveness against NBA level athleticism.

EDIT: If you are so sure that he would have gone top 5, then why didn't he declare?

They took him over Barnes cause they wanted a wing that could create offense. I'm not saying Waiters >> Barnes, but they liked his skill set better and felt that he would complement the team in a way that Barnes couldn't.

He was considered top 3-4 with Irving, Barnes, and later Williams. He didn't declare because he wanted to lead OSU to a title. He even said he wasn't ready to leave. They lost a tough game due to Brandon Knight hitting a clutch jumper. Do you know how weak the 2011 draft was? At worst he slips to 6.

That's why none of us are listening to anything you write. You are basically implying he will be better than Wade with literally nothing to back it up except you looked at him and think he's good. You are really consistent, unfortunately that's consistently wrong.
