One of the best young stars on the Cleveland Cavaliers isn’t just having a wonderful, impressive career – he’s having fun too.
It’s obviously really important that the guys who make up an NBA team actually enjoy their time playing on the squad.
All of the money and fame is nice, of course, but if they aren’t having a blast then none of it is really worth it.

It’s obvious that no one has to worry about that with Darius Garland of the Cavs.
Garland has repeatedly been spotted with a huge enthusiastic smile on his face while on the court.
But it’s not just Garland who is smiling – the fans are very happy with what they see from the young guard.
Into His Own
Garland just had a truly terrific season that would leave anyone smiling from ear to ear.
He put up 21.7 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 8.6 assists a game.
That’s a huge step up from his career average of 17.4 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 6.3 assists.
During the last year, Garland has proven himself not just as an incredible part of the Cavaliers, but an incredible part of the entire NBA.
There is a reason why he’s finally earned his first All-Star appearance.
The thing about Garland is that he’s getting remarkably better and better after just three years within the league.
His percentage in just about every category has grown by leaps and bounds since the 2019-20 season.
This leads many to believe that the 2022-23 season will be even better than the last, especially as Garland is granted more responsibilities and the team is given more attention.
Garland has been smiling more often while playing for the Cavs but you can expect even more joy from him in the months ahead.
