Confidence isn’t something many NBA players lack.

Living up to that bravado though, that’s been a problem for many.

Cleveland Cavalier fans are hoping second year player Dion Waiters will live up to his self inflicted billing as he recently said he’ll eventually be the best shooting guard in the league.

Per HoopsWorld:

“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.”

Waiters has a long way to go to make such a leap, though, many felt he had some of the best raw talent coming out of the 2012 NBA Draft so his proclamation isn’t outlandish as it might seem on the surface.

    Yeah, ok. No defense, terrible shot selection…if those two things do a 180, he’ll be drastically improved. That’s as far as I can go with his proclamation.
