According to a report by Ethan Skolnick and FiveReasonsSports, the reason for Dion Waiters' latest suspension doesn't involve him marching into coach Erik Spoelstra's office and demanding more (any) playing time, eating face-melting edibles on the plane (that was last time), or even being late to practice. Nope, this time, it was calling in sick to work and then brazenly blasting pictures of himself on a boat to hundreds of thousands of his Instagram followers.
Busted by the 'gram! And he would have gotten away with it if it weren't for you meddling kids!
Bad decisions on social media — they're a learning lesson, and they charge high-powered lawyer-like hourly fees.
The Heat will undoubtedly continue to try to trade Waiters to just about anyone willing to take him for anything less than the price of one of Micky Arison's cruise ships and Rookie of the Year candidate Kendrick Nunn. If it were legal to send him to a team in the Chinese Basketball Association, he would already be playing for the Beijing Ducks.
Take it from Dion Waiters: Stay off the edibles and Instagram if you can't handle them, kids. Your boss might be watching.
