Player Bio: Dion Waiters

Jun 24, 2012 -- 3:35pm

By Kenny Roda


Here’s my fourteenth player bio from my top 14 players in this year NBA draft as I see it:

 

DION WAITERS  – SPH – SG – SYRACUSE – 6’4 – 221 – 12.6ppg –2.3rpg – 2.5apg

 

STRENGTHS:

Takes it to the rim strong, can finish and isn’t afraid of contact.

Solid NBA body.

Knows how to score the ball in a number of ways and has that scorer’s mentality.

Tough kid from South Philly who plays like he has something to prove to a lot of people.

His game is more suited for the NBA game than the college game.

Good handle, which means he can play the 1 and the 2 and create his own shot.

 

 

 WEAKNESSES:

His jumper isn’t consistent and needs a lot of work, which isn’t good for a shooting guard.

While he’s built like a brick-you-know-what-house, he is somewhat undersized for the 2-guard position.

If he is that good, why couldn’t he start at Syracuse?

Can he play man-to-man defense at the highest level after playing all zone in college?

Is he versatile because he can play the 1 and the 2, or is he a man without a true position?
