Homer Alert! CJ McCollum - Portland's poor mans DWade?

Maybe he could be our version of Wade. CJ is small for the SG position but he rebounds well and gets a lot of steals (same as D Wade in college). He also has a really strong upper body (13 in bench press to wades 9) while also being a bigger leaper. Both have a nice handle etc.

Of course they are different players but maybe, just maybe CJ could work as a full time SG if he continues to really work at his defense and ends being offensively dominant. He and Lillard together could be just nasty. I know we all lament their defensive abilities but I think we will see a LOT of improvement in this for two reasons:

1- Both are high character guys AND great athletes. Lots of high character guys like Steph Curry out there BUT they're less than perfect athleticism and size tends to lead them to be weak defenders and rebounders.

2- Both are not Melo styled egos with world given to them. These are small school kids who had to scrape for everything and now will take the work ethic to the next level.
