We could, but let's wait a month when the Dion honeymoon is over.


Reggie Jackson will be a good get for the Clippers.

I'm hoping the heavily structured environment within the bubble makes what we've seen from Dion and JR sustainable.

Couldn't hit a jump shot but still had a good game. Exactly what we needed off bench.

Yeah he deserved to close the game instead of KCP but I get it. AD/Kuz/LeBron/Dion/Caruso is an interesting group that I def want to see more of.

Nah, AD deserves the POG award but Dion is our Subway Sub of the Game, naturally since they still got Philly cheese steak on their menu!

Don’t really remember the expectations for Isaiah Rider but was he supposed to be what Dion is for us?

Dion "The Microwave" Waiters

Finally got another shot creator. What a signing and I was ready to bury this guy in the first five minutes tonight.

Possibly. If Waiters is a key piece in our championship run, Avery could find himself in a trade package after the season.

Wait until he has a stretch where he's on extreme fire and fans will really love him.

My favorite thing about his game so far is that he doesn't always just settle for an outside shot which the entire roster does a lot of at times. It's nice to have someone like him that can not only break the defense down and find an open man but also is capable of making just about any shot on the floor. When he is playing hard on both ends it's going to be tough to play Green or kcp over him when those guys aren't lighting it up. He's right in his prime as well.

Also, I get the comparisons slightly to Rider due to the situations but Waiters "troubles" has been nowhere remotely close to what Rider was doing.

Regardless, I hope Rondo only comes back and plays a glorified bench coach role for the Playoffs if we remain healthy.
