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.
