Why Dion Waiters Should Remain The Starter

A new neighborhood on Waiters' Island. Dion Waiters. Perhaps the most polarizing role player in the NBA today.  He’s perceived by many to be nothing but a ball-hogging, over-dribbling, step-back long-two chucking wannabe star.  And hey, it’s possible that claims like these aren’t that far from the truth.  I mean, let’s face it – we’ve all seen Bad Dion.  You know, the one that makes you vigorously throw your hands in the air, and not in the I’m-at-a-Wu-Tang-concert kind of way, but more in a when-the-hell-is-he-getting-traded kind of way. Then there’s Good Dion.  That...

Sounds of Thunder: the Enigma, the defense, and bulletin board material

The good, the bad, and a bucket or two of fried chicken. The Enigma - Dion Waiters enigmanoun enig·ma \i-ˈnig-mə, e-\Simple Definition of enigma: someone or something that is difficult to understand or explain When WLTC's J.A.

I could stop right there, and the mere mention of Waiter's name might generate 10 comments. When it...

2015-16 Season game 48: Oklahoma City Thunder vs Minnesota Timberwolves full coverage

Where They At: Oklahoma City Thunder The Thunder almost got swept in New York, but they're poised to win three of four on this road trip despite pairing underwhelming performances with an incomplete starting lineup. The New York Knicks win was nearly a disappointing defeat, the Madison margin too close for comfort. But the excitement of overtime at the Garden announced by Walt Frazier turned the fan experience from frightful to delightful. The team is clearly going to miss Andre Roberson, and Billy Donovan looks likely to simply lean more on Dion Waiters (43 minutes last night) in his...

Dion Waiters: A Thunder Crisis

This is a crisis. You can’t give starters’ minutes to a player this bad. Before this Thunder season, I predicted that Dion Waiters could maybe, just maybe, be poised for a moderate breakout in 2015-16. The Year of the Dion, I said. This has become the year of Waiters, but not like I envisioned. I love the dude, and have been rooting for him since he was a rookie. But this season has confirmed what Cleveland believed when trading him to Oklahoma City: he doesn't belong in a championship contender's rotation. Winning a ton of games behind stellar play from Kevin Durant and Russell...

This week on the Phil Naessens Show, we discuss a myriad of topics, including Durant, Dion Waiters, and blogging in the NBA. Listen in!
