Dion Waiters Shows Shades of D-Wade with Monster Dunk

Dion Waiters put on a bit of a show in his first game back from an ankle injury in the Cleveland Cavaliers' 113-99 loss to the Toronto Raptors.

Waiters only scored eight points on 4-of-13 shooting in his return to action, but he wasn't without his exciting moments.

The Cavs lost this game, but the real winners were all those people with NBA League Pass who know the dynamic frontcourt of Cleveland's is capable of three or four exciting plays every game.

With Kyrie Irving, the Cavs have a young man who can get to the rim and score with either hand, no matter how heavy the traffic, and knock down some huge clutch shots when they need him to.

With Waiters, however, the Cavs have a slightly bigger, more athletic ball-handler who can get to the rim and leave it rocking for a few minutes after he ends up dropping back down to the floor.

The duo is exhilarating, and the world got another taste of that in this one against the Rockets.

The Dwyane Wade comparison is easy to make with Dion Waiters when you see him do something like that.

Of course, he's got quite a long way to go in other facets of his game before he's anywhere near Wade as a player.
