Dion Waiters is a confident dude, so it should be no surprise that he feels his future in the NBA will include multiple All-Star appearances, championships and years of greatness.

Waiters is working extra hard this summer in preparation for his second season in the NBA, and during a conversation with Alex Kennedy of HOOPSWORLD, Waiters said that he’ll eventually be the best shooting guard in the NBA.

“I’m coming. I just feel as though I’m next up as far as shooting guards. If you look around, you know, Kobe [Bryant] and [Dwyane] Wade and those guys, they paved the way for a player like me and they’re almost done. It’s not like that, but I’m just saying, I’m coming. I just want everybody to know that.

“Without a doubt, I really believe that [I’ll eventually be the best shooting guard in the NBA]. This year, I’m going to show a lot of people who doubted me and still doubt me. I’m going to show them. And I don’t need praise and all of that. I just want to be respected. I’m coming. That’s all I have to say. I’ve taken my work ethic to another level and I feel as though I still have something to prove. So, watch out.”

The 21-year-old Waiters averaged 14.7 points per game during and up-and-down rookie season for the Cavs.
