A wide-open player calling for the ball isn’t a big deal but since there’s been so many examples of Waitiers calling for the ball and not getting it from his teammates, every time it happens now it’s becomes meme worthy and worth sharing.
So here’s an example from last night’s game against the Knicks. Waiters took 10 shots, made just 3 and after a stretch of 4 games where Waiters was shooting over 50%, he’s barely above 30% over his last 6. BUT, he’s a lot happier calling for the ball in OKC than he was with this guy.
