Dion Waiters' career may have gotten off to a rough start in Cleveland, but he has turned it around lately. His remarkable performance in February even earned the rookie guard some honors from the NBA.
With the month of February coming to a close, the NBA announced its monthly awards this week. And it shouldn't come as much of a surprised that the Cleveland Cavaliers' Dion Waiters was given the incredible prestigious title of Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for February.
After a rough start (particularly in the month of December), Waiters has made huge strides towards being a very good NBA player. In February, Waiters averaged 15.8 points per game on 51.4% shooting in 28.2 minutes per game. I plan on writing a lot more about Waiters later this week, but it's certainly nice to see him get some recognition for the improvement that he has made.
