Where does the Cavs’ Rank Amongst The Best NBA Backcourts
David Richard-USA TODAY Sport
Recently Dion Waiters made comments regarding the Cavaliers backcourt and how he believes Cleveland boasts the best one, specifically over John Wall and his Wizards backcourt partner in crime, Bradley Beal.
On Monday, Bradley Beal told reporters that John Wall and himself are “definitely the best backcourt in the league.”
Dion Waiters then responded to Beal’s claim after practice on Tuesday. “That’s nonsense. [Beal is] supposed to say that, but I know deep down, he’s not messing with me and Ky [Kyrie Irving]. I think me and Ky are the best backcourt, young backcourt. That’s all.”
Of course then John Wall responded to Waiters with “you gotta win a playoff game first before you can talk. You gotta be a starter first.”
The exchange between these players now gives us an opportunity to look at some of the top backcourts in the NBA. Although Kyrie Irving and Dion Waiters have incredible potential, what cannot be overlooked is the fact that potential does not equate to results.
