The Heat Have Suspended Dion Waiters For The THIRD Time This Season After He Banged Out Sick Before Posting A Photo Chillin On A Boat

Dion Waiters is treating the 2019-2020 NBA season like a high school senior in his second semester who has already made peace with the fact that he’s going to community college.

We are less than two months removed from the Heat suspending Waiters for the season opener due to “a number of unacceptable incidents this week, culminating with his unprofessional conduct on the bench.” Waiters then hopped on Twitter to take a shot at Miami coach Erik Spoelstra, claiming his success is a direct correlation to LeBron, Wade, and Bosh, before liking comments about waiving/trading him.

Aaaaand just last month, the former number 4 overall pick in the 2012 Draft was handed a 10-game suspension for overdosing on weed gummies before having a seizure on the team plane. A rookie move for a veteran.

It doesn’t stop there.

It has recently been reported that the Heat have suspended Waiters another six games for “failure to adhere to team policies, violation of team rules and continued insubordination.”

Ethan Skolnick of Five Reasons Sports Network reports:

According to three sources, it was inspired by an Instagram post of Waiters hanging out on a boat during a time when the team was made to believe he was unavailable because he was sick.

Could anyone possibly give a shit less about their job than someone who bangs out sick and then openly snitches on himself? Talk about being seasick, amiright?

It has since been reported by Bleacher Report that the Heat are “determined to move on” from Waiters. Which is weird, considering they’re crushing without him (18-7) and he’s giving the organization all their money back.

In my estimation, Dion Waiters is a steal.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
