#2 Dion Waiters

Draft Position: 4

The fourth overall pick in the draft is still trying to find some consistency in his game playing alongside Kyrie Irving, but Waiters’ shoe game needs no tweaking. Whether he’s guarding Stephen Curry in a pair of the brand new Kobe 8 ”Year of the Snake,” hitting jumpers against the Pistons in a customized pair of KD Vs (pictured above), or scoring a career high against the Kings in another customized pair of the Kobe VIIs, Waiters keeps eyes glued to his feet. His shoe diversity and creativity with Nike ID earns the rising Cavs rookie the nod at no. 2.
