"The fastest guy I've ever seen with the basketball, going from one end to the other."

That's how former NBA player and coach Avery Johnson describes Collin Sexton.

While Johnson did coach Sexton at the University of Alabama, he's not just blowing hot air.

Sexton, now a rookie with the Cleveland Cavaliers, is a blur with the basketball.

His combination of speed and explosiveness has drawn comparisons to Russell Westbrook.

Sexton himself has said his speed is his greatest attribute.

With a void in the Cleveland offense left by LeBron James' departure, expect to see Sexton put that speed to good use quite frequently.
