I've really liked what I've seen out of Dion so far. He's shown a lot more patience than I expected and he has an absolutely explosive first step. His jumper has also looked pretty good so far, surprisingly after his poor Summer League and Preseason performances. He might just be one of those guys who shines brightest when the lights turn on.

He needs to work on finishing around the basket, though. With his explosiveness and ball-handling at his size, he can get there when he wants... But he misses a lot of bunnies at the rim.

Still, he's been a lot better than I expected this soon.

EDIT: Lillard doesn't belong in this conversation because the Cavs didn't need a point guard, obviously. He was never an option.

He simply has a tremendous basketball IQ. Even higher than Kyrie

Really wish Beal had done better. PB is going to be insufferable now
Good game by Waiters, though.
