Collin Sexton on His Development This Season: ‘I’m Very Tough on Myself’

2 Min Read

The Cleveland Cavaliers drafted Collin Sexton to become the point guard of the future and the rookie’s development is one of the main focuses of this season.

Sexton, 20, is progressing nicely and starting to find his comfort zone. Despite his promising play, the rookie says he can be self-critical.

“I’m very tough on myself,” Sexton told reporter Fred McLeod. “I have an expectation of how I want to play each and every game.”

Sexton also discussed whether or not it’s difficult to stay patient through the ups and downs:

“Not at all, especially when the guys have your back. I feel like on this team everybody is for one another and want to see each other do good.”

Sexton is far from a finished product, but he’s showing significant signs of progress. He’s averaging 14.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game this season. The Alabama University product is showing his ability to get to the basket and score, but he has yet to find his rhythm as a facilitator.

The Cavaliers are in the midst of an unfortunate rebuild and Sexton is their most promising young player. His development is key to turning the franchise around. If Sexton lives up to his own expectations, the Cavaliers will have a franchise cornerstone to build around.
